New batteries are sold fully charged and ready to go. Just be sure to connect the red (positive) terminal first, then the negative, and don't get them reversed!

Well the rule is if the battery wasn't fully charged up before you install it the battery will weaken and never been fully up to par.If it was me I'd use a battery tester/charger on it and make sure it was fully charged up before installing it.Note if you had a voltage meter and put it on dc volts the new battery if fully charged should read 12.5 or more like 12.9 volts if it's been fully charged.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way I'd suggest that you do get a battery charger something that can charge 6-12 volt batteries.Plus for the winter months etc get a portable booster this can also test the battery for you and they can run you from 35-100 bucks or more.Note I have one I payed 40 bucks for 4 years ago and it can boost up to 10 different times on one full charge.
