At what point should I consider replacing my battery?

Need? whenever your phone is unable to support your schedule.

however, batteries are only designed for roughly 500 charges. so anytime after a year and a half would be the optimal preventative timing to replace a battery.

Even new it isn't able to support my schedule. Just a tiny battery. I think I might replace it as it has been more than 500 charge cycles. Thanks for your feedback!
