Venue 8 new battery

Just had to purchase a new battery for my Venue 8.  Do I have to charge the new battery before using the tablet at all? I've installed the new battery and plugged it in using a Dell charger, can I now fire up the tablet and start using it while charging or do I have to wait.

I can turn it on but only get as far as the DELL screen then it goes black and nothing happens.

Hi Shellslane,

Thank you for writing to Dell Community Forum.

Please charge the battery completely before usage, as this would help improve the battery life.

Please click my DELL-username and send me a Private Message with the Dell Service Tag number and your email address.

Note: please don't mention the service tag or email id on the public forum as it contains your personal information
