    It's Complicated
    Should have done it an hour ago, now it's too late and you have to wait until next month....Kidding, turn it on anytime you wish. Enjoy your Android!

    HTC recommends 8 hours first time.

    8 hrs. that aint happening.
     
  5. Just curious, where did you see 8 hours? It doesn't even take 8 hours for the battery to charge even when fully drained, so that is a bit excessive.

    OP, you are free to turn it on when you wish. Lithium ion batteries have no memory and won't be affected. However, typically you should cycle the battery every once in a while to correctly calibrate the battery meter as it will start to skew as time progresses
