    It's usually not the case. You might find lines like that in manuals as a
    legacy; however, modern LION (and better) batteries do not have the old memory
    effect that would have made it necessary to fully discharge and then fully
    charge a battery to set the memory.

    The question of whether new LiIon batteries should be conditioned with
    several full charge/discharge cycles is separate from the issue of
    "memory", where you are supposed to completely discharge/recharge the
    battery EVERY time. LiIon batteries are definitely not subject to the
    "memory" issue, and in fact, regularly discharging them "completely"
    (that is, until the phone turns off) will hurt their lifetime.

    On the question of "conditioning", some people say that you absolutely
    should do it, and others say that the manufacturer has already done the
    conditioning and no purpose is served by the user also doing it.
