Hi Sakis72,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

You don't need to have it charged during initial set up since it most likely have a charge as described from this post by Ken.

 

"Li-ion cells are preconditioned at the cell manufacturer during the formation process. During this time, it is important for full cycles to be performed by the manufacturer. By the time you have received your battery pack, all the cells actually have a few cycles on them due to this process. So when you first boot your system and you see 40% remaining capacity, it really does not matter if you discharge the battery then or charge it to 100%. Additionally if you leave the system plugged in for 8 hrs, no additional charging occurs once the battery reaches 100%. Charging is automatically turned off at the 100% point."

 

Time of charging would depend on the battery type and the resources of each variant model plus the customization you have for the machine. Others would take 4-8 hours (depending also on the remaining charge), but a good reference is the battery indicator (page 29) as it goes from amber (less than 20%) to blinking white (20% and 80% charge) to solid white (80% and above).

 

Personally, it would be best to set up and customize the machine while plugged in to check functionality and likewise have it connected to the charger to observe operational charging of the battery for future reference.

 

Hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Hello

 

For how long should I charge an Ideapad 330S for the first time? Is it true that it should be for 12 hours or should it be when it is fully charged?

 

Thank you very much for your help.

 

 

Warm regards, 

 

 

Daniela Castellanos.

Hi thindani,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Basically, you do not have to charge it 100%, full charging and full draining is not required as it just cost the life cycle of batteries. 40-60% is enough for storage and 20-80% for usage.

 

Regards
