    It depends not only on cycles, but on your battery health. It also depends on which MBP model you have. Older MBPs with removable batteries should retain up to 80% health up to 300 cycles. For newer MBPs, that's 1000 cycles. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions:
