Bought a new spare  battery (HS04) for my laptop. How to start using or breaking in?

New battery break in

No break in needed. Urban myth dating back to 30 years ago when laptop batteries were nickel cadmium and had memory effect. If you are in reach of an AC plug to use the adapter use it. If not use the battery. Don't let it drop below 15-20%. You can keep it on AC power even after fully charged. That's all. Enjoy.
