Should I just put these on the charger and let them charge or should I do a calibrate on them?

My 2 old batteries have shown a significant drop in performance, only a few hundred shots on a charge and lose power as they sit in the camera. I took a battery off the charger this morning after it had been there for days and it only shows a 91% charge.

I want to make sure these new batteries get a good start in life.
