Default Bench running Servos

How long do you guys Bench Run(Burn In) your digital servos? I just got 6 new Hitec digital servos, two 5735, two 5645, and two 6635. I have run them all for 20min on the Hitec Programmer, no failures yet.
Is 20 minutes long enough? Or should I do it longer?

You will get a lot of different answers on this, but I feel 20 to 30 minutes should cover it. 30 yrs ago the thought never crossed my mind and I never had problems with a servo failure off the bat, except the ones I put into the ground.

I use my DSC and servo cycler in my 9C and run them until my packs die.
This lets me know how long I can go and what a "LOW" drain would look like on my packs.
