Hello everyone! I read the forum for a while, so I can tell you I'm aware with the discussions in RAZR topics. Now, what I really need to know and understand is the initializing procedure of the first use of an RAZR/RAZR MAXX. From what I saw on the manual plus the precious posts of FoxKat here I understand that is recommended to fully charge the battery right away the phone is out of the box (without power it on at all!). I don't got this idea and I can't figure how it really helps to a better battery performance/life. That's why I ask all of you who are experts in this stuff to explain how it to me for make it clear. On the other hand, I spoke several times with the technical department of Motorola USA and United Kingdom and none of them even think it's necessary to be so strictly with the charging process, considering it will not affect in any way battery life. BUT what they ALL recommended to me is to do the first charge for at least 12 hours. Yeas, I KNOW the Li-Ion Batteries have no memory effect and all that stuff, I read all that section on Battery University. But it was Vince from Battery University who told once if I have a big battery smartphone (MAXX is twice than a normal phone) to "initially charge that new battery for 12 hours, then use it normal. So ... there are too many opinions that often do not coincide, some I understand, others I don't. What I actually want is that the new RAZR MAXX that I just bought to be used optimally for a maximum battery performance. I have a standard Razr for months whose battery is a total fiasco and I'm fed up. Thanks all in advance.
