    I'm getting the Seidio 1750 mA and wanted make sure I do everything possible to ensure it lasts.

    I should fully charge this beast before using it for the first time right?

    Then let it completely die before charging it again?


    I here mixed opinions as to whether cycling these batteries is actually a big deal or not.

    Some claim its not necessary while some say its a must. Just want to see if people would be interested in explaining their reasoning, and possibly including some references (links).

    Thanks in advance.

    A little side note: Do those battery widgets (i.e. BatteryLife) do more harm than good in respect to battery life? I like the little percentage display, but if it milks the battery then its kind of defeating the purpose. :\
