    Ok. Well, most of the time, batteries are charged from the factory (maybe not 100%) but it will looses it charge through time even if you dont use it at all.

    So my suggestion is that since you already bought it, why not open now, charged it to full and start using it immediately. Then every week, swap the batteries. In that case, you will always be sure to have two batteries, one fully charged battery on standby.

    You battery should have about a half charge when you remove it from the package. Half charged is the BEST way to store a L-Ion battery that you will not be using for a while.
