    Mine was 3/4 charged right out of the box and yes I played with it immediately and charged it when I went to bed.

    It's not really an issue with the Droid's battery. You can play with it before fully charging without any negative effects on battery life/performance.

    The whole 'charge for 24 hours' part is recommended mostly so you condition the battery. It doesn't really 'ruin' it because you want to play with it before the 24 hour period.

    The only reason I and others recommend doing it is so you don't bias yourself on the battery life seeming 'short' because of that.

    There is no memory on the charge either, so don't worry about using it and not having a good 'charge' out of it because you didn't do the 24 hour part.

    The important thing to understand is, as eager as you are to play with it, don't judge it too harshly at the beginning, give it a few days and a good proper charging cycle to base your opinions battery wise... And read up on some of the forum discussions on how to improve battery life. :)

    modern batteries don't get a memory and thus dont need to be charged/discharged. They like frequent charging though, so whenever you can throw it on a charger.
