Doesn't really matter how long...just charge it and use. The Li-Ion batteries in these devices are not dependent on what you might have formerly seen on older Ni-Cad batteries for long overnight first charge....

 

Here are some good charging tips, please read and you'll see that many of them will apply to you.
