How long do I need to charge my new phone for?

Just bought a Samsung Galaxy 3. How long do I need to charge it for before I use it? I remember in the olden days you had to charge things for 24 hours before using...

Modern Li-Ion batteries do not really need as much pampering as our old wizardry-powered calls. Mobot's Lewis Curdie has a little guide =>> http://www.mobot.net/mobile-battery-13632
Personally, I'm supersticious: give it a couple of hours...

Thanks for the guide. I gave it overnight just to be safe :)

Despite the expert view that you don't need to give your Li-Ion battery a long initial charge, in my experience they still benefit from a good long first charge.
