Question LIPO Forming

Hi guys....A question that has been bothering me for a while.
I've been told by one individual, that a new LIPO battery should "broken in and formed", similar to what we do with non-Lipo batteries. I've not seen or heard of this anywhere else, except this one individual. He is very knowledgable about electronics and such so I do tend to pay attrntion to what he says, but this time I question his statement.

Has anyone else heard of this or is he full of hooey? If it's true, what would the procedure for forming be? I have a bunch of new batteries for my boats that I want to start using.

Thanks for any help you can offer on this subject.

A quick scan of the results showed comments back to 2007 or earlier.

Find out for yourself:

Most of the Lipo battery suppliers say to use the Lipo "gently" the first few cycles.

Thank you, very much Rafeal. That link is a huge help for me to understand it all. Thanks also, Cuckk2. I'll have to figure out to run a race boat "gently".

May all of your landings be wheels down on the ground!
