    Do you mean 18650 battery? They generally only have 40% max charge in em out of the shop as its safer to ship/ less explosive energy if something does go wrong,and they also store better at that% mark. So i would say yes charge em up. They generally take a couple of charge and discharge to come up to full capacity.

    It's not absolutely necessary to fully charge Li-Ion batteries before using them, Li-Ion batts do not get a "memory effect" like some other rechargeables will when used below max charge.
    However it is best to fully charge the Li-Ion batts for their first use, for a few reasons but the most important reason IMO, is so you can get a good gauge of the run time expected from you new, fully charged, batteries.
    Also it is best to wait 10-15mins at least(30mins is better) between using the batts & charging the batts and the same in reverse (charging - using), doing this will preserve your batteries for longer, giving them a longer life expectancy.
