And the section relevant to why you should follow Leica's directions before
using the battery:

Capacity Recovery After Storage
In normal practice, stored cells will provide full capacity on the first
discharge after removal from storage and charging with standard methods.
Cells stored for an extended period or at elevated temperatures may require
more than one cycle to attain pre-storage capacities. Consultation with the
manufacturer is recommended if prolonged storage and rapid restoration of
capacity is planned.
