What I've done is boot the Freerunner with the spare battery, plug in the wall
charger that came with the Freerunner (or force 500 mA charge on a suitable USB
charger supply) then remove the spare battery and put in the FIC battery.  The
Freerunner will run without battery when the wall charger is plugged in and
will charge the FIC battery once it is inserted.
