Battery should not be less than 50%..WHY?!?!

My Blackberry Torch 9800 was given to me by a friend. He advised me to immediately charge the unit once the battery reaches 50%. If the battery will be emptied, it will take 3 days before it can come back to life. My question is, WHY? I mean, what's wrong with it? And what shall I do? THANKS! Smiley Happy
