    I just bought a new 9 cell Battery for my Dell Inspiron 1525 and was wondering what I should do to ensure that I get the most out of my battery. I haven't received it yet but will either tomorrow or early next week and just wanted to be prepared.

    I suggest that you go to www.dell.com/support enter your service tag number (on bottom side of the laptop) and download/save the manual for your particular computer.
    I believe that the battery should be installed and charged for 24 hours before you try to operate the computer without the electricity connected. The manual will explain all of that.

    well i didn't see much about new battery tips or whatever in the manual so I mean I will let it fully charge and then should I let it discharge fully and then recharge it and go through a cycle like this or not.
