new packs will usually take that much of a charge

They're just saying your pack will get better after you run it a couple of times

On a brand new good set of cells I will easily put over 4300Mah in. Of course this will not be what you get out, which is of course the most important part. I can put in over 4000Mah into my 3 yr old cells. Expect to only get around 82% to 85% back out on discharge.
