Because lithium-ion batteries do not have a memory effect, the use of lithium-ion batteries does not require activation. It is not necessary to charge the new lithium battery for 10 hours to activate the battery activity, and the activation is performed according to the normal charging and discharging method.
Lithium batteries have no so-called memory effect and can be recharged at any time. The suggestion that the lithium-ion battery be fully charged and discharged on a regular basis is only for calibrating the power detection device on laptops and some high-end smart phones, and not because it is not good for the battery itself. For devices such as ordinary mobile phones and digital cameras that display the approximate battery level, it is not necessary to fully charge and discharge periodically.
Overcharging and overdischarging can cause huge damage to lithium batteries, especially liquid lithium-ion batteries. Therefore, it is best to charge according to the standard time and standard method, especially do not charge for over 12 hours. Generally, the charging method described in the instruction manual is the standard charging method.
