Default New battery: Is there

a process for charging brand new batteries? Do I have to do a slow charge, or can I do a fast charge?

Some new packs will false peak their first charge, basically just force the charge, do not discharge and try again if you get a false peak.

So no need to do a slow charge on the new batteries?

The best thing you can do for ANY battery is treat them with consistency. From the first time you charge them, until you turn them into a motor lathe or motor break-in pack, charge and discharge them the SAME EXACT WAY. So hit as hard as you would if you were going racing. Charge #1 should be just like charge #100.
