    Took advantage of one of the reason light sales and bought (I hope) a half decent front light

    Lithium Li Ion battery

    Do I leave it uncharged until I actually need it?

    cheers

    does that mean they come pre charged?

    it’s still in the box

    Why don’t you open the box and see what the instructions say?

    instructions don’t tell you about storing them, which is why I am asking on here

    I’d charge it and run it a couple of times, even if it means taking it out on day rides.
    Then either run it for half it’s prescribed run time to get the battery to ~50% or charge it for half the prescribed charge time to get it back up to 50%.

    Store it in a cool/dry place.

    usually about 30-40% charged, they can be used straight away, but best giving it a full charge first. But dont leave fully charged for long periods… just ~50% is fine.
