    If I run my battery to 50%, then charge to full, run it to 50% again and then charge to full, would this count as 1 full cycle for the battery?

    "A charge cycle means using all of the battery’s power, but that doesn’t necessarily mean a single charge. For instance, you could listen to your iPod for a few hours one day, using half its power, and then recharge it fully. If you did the same thing the next day, it would count as one charge cycle, not two, so you may take several days to complete a cycle."
