no you can't. lithium-ion or better lithium-polymer batteries need to be charged and discharged if the manufacturer didn't do the initial charging.
and as far as i can tell, cowon doesn't do that.
are you really sure that it was fully charged upon arrival?
you could have read the manual because i'm almost 100% sure that the charging process is described there, but in modern times that's not really necessary, now is it?
