When, as far as we know, many users obtain a new dell KM887 laptop battery, they tend to charge it for more than twelve hours for the first three times before beginning to use it, which is far from what they are recommended to do. According to the social comments by many manufacturers, although doing so is aimed at as complete an activation of the activeness of the battery as will fully awaken the properties of the new battery, there certainly take place some mishandlings of such procedures. Letís say that if the battery is not fully activated by manufacturers before its going out of the plant, then it can be referred to as only a semi-product, in which case, it is impossible to require every user to master the skills for its activation. Nor can it be so in reality. But it is still believed by some that doing so is somewhat necessary, not because of what has been mentioned above, but because an activated battery can demonstrate a process of natural discharge.
Thatís why some of these batteries have to be purchased some time after their going out of factory, for reasons that by a natural discharge, their electric quantity will be obviously lower than before their going out of the factory. So what users should do is get the battery involved in discharge process right after their purchase of it, but they must remember not to fully discharge its electric quantity. It will be best if they can set its electric quantity at 5% or so when they are ready to charge it by plugging it into the external electric power supply. Once they finish repeatedly charging it for three times, its memory effect can be effectively abated.
