    New 17" arrived today.

    Looking to care for the battery from day one - should I start her up and drain before beginning the callibration process, or charge before starting up?

    I've read this ( but it doesn't really highlight if I should drain the battery first or not.

    First charge, preferably leave it in for 2 hours after reaching 100%, then drain. That's how I do it.
