    A cycle as Apple calls it is when the battery drains completely and then recharges, it can do this 100o times before the battery loses health. My question is, when you're at half battery and you plug it in, and you always do this and never let it get to 0%, does it its still add these up as cycles?

    I'm pretty sure it does. And the 1000 times is for the new macbooks with the larger battery. The old Macbooks with the removable batteries get about 300.
