    I'm trying to decide whether to activate and charge it at work or if I have to wait til I get home. I have 3 hours. Does it take longer to get it to full power?

    When I got my 8310 it took about 2 hours, then I was ready to rock and roll

    I've bought a few extra batteries lately…They all said charge it for 8 hours before first use…

    There's a thread around here somewhere that recommends 24 hours for the first charge.

    I'd do what you want, and if you have problems down the road you can get a new one for 20 bucks.

    I actually used mine right when I got it as the store had already powered it on. Then I went home and charged it for a few hours. I figure if it's screwed up I'll buy a new battery.

    Until it's done. When the charge indicator goes off, it's done.

    If you check out eBay you can get a new battery for $7. Free shipping, too
