When buying an electronic we always have two alternatives, either go for a new one or if it is costing you an arm and a leg you might go with a second hand. If you are going for a used hand-to-down electronic, you would choose the one which has not been used for a very long period of time with good condition and of course sensible price.


In today’s blog we are going to introduce you to a little unique concept especially in MacBook. If you’re an apple user, you somewhere or the other must have come across the term cycle count. Have you not? Okay let us explain this to you.


CYCLE COUNTS:  Cycle counts are the total number of times you have used your battery’s power fully, either all at once or in parts depending upon your usage. For instance, you have used 50% of your fully charged battery today, recharged it again and used another 50% next time, this (50+50=100) will be considered as one cycle count and not two

Every Apple machine, has a limit over its cycle count set by the manufacturer. It fluctuates from MacBook to MacBook. Once the user has consumed all the cycle count limit, the machine won’t stop functioning but its battery backup performance won’t be up to the par. It is better to switch to the new battery. Click on the following link to check your MacBook’s battery count limit.


Cycle counts help you calculate the age of the battery. So if your battery is not working suitably, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have touched the limit. Get it tested by a technical person.


How to check your MacBook’s current cycle count?

  • Click on the  icon on the top left corner,
  • Select About This Mac option,
  • Go to System Information,
  • Click on the option Power, You'll find the following tab,


We hope we have covered almost everything about cycle counts. If you feel the need to ask any questions or give suggestions, we are just a mail away!
