I bought this rechargeable headlamp from Lidl today for £9.99

The instruction say it has an "Lithium-Ion 3.7 V, 1800mAh" inside and it`s charged though an micro-usb port, it`s has an green led while it charges and it goes out when it`s full.

But the instructions say for the first charge to charge for 6 hours even though the green charging light goes off, It says from then on it`s recommended to charge it for 4 hours.

The charging instruction seems to be more for standard NiMh battery`s rather than Li-ion.
