    i'm new to mbp. What does a battery cycle equal/mean?. Does that mean when it needs a full charge?

    It means a full 100-0%, and back again.

    Doing 100-50% and back again twice counts as a cycle.

    doing 100%-90% and back again ten times counts as a cycle.

    You get the idea.

    Read the WHAT IS A CYCLE? section of the following link.
    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions, including tips for maximizing battery performance. If you haven’t already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.
