    My cycle count is 480. How many charges are still allowed til I have to get a new one?

    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:
