How to charge batteries for a BR1300G?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 12/5/2013

I used to have the BR800. In order to start using new one or after changing its batteries you had to charge its batteries by connecting it to the power line,

leave it alone  for about 24 hrs without connecting it to a computer and other devices and pushing power button.

Only after that you need connect it to computer and other devices and power it on.

In the manual for the BR1300G nothing explain how batteries charging has to be done.

Did I can connect it to power line and immediately power it on, or I have to connect it to devices and power it on immediately after connecting it to power line.

I will greatly appreciate someone to explaining me.
