Are rechargeable batteries already charged when you first buy them?

I have solar lights that say to use Rechargeable batteries only. Can I put them in right when I buy them or do I have to charge the batteries first?

Read the package the batteries come in. Some state that you need to charge them before the first use, because even if they were shipped fully charged, some of that charge can leak out over time.
