Will battery cycle count change with calibration?
I just bought a used battery for my wife's MacBook.
Her battery had 450 cycles or so.
Now I know I am taking my chances on a used battery from eBay, but the seller deduced that this battery has less than 100 cycles. He explains that it came out of a broken computer and is 'good as new.'
I plugged it in cold to her computer today and the cycle count was 732!!!
So I am going to calibrate the battery of course, but will my cycle count change after calibration? And if not, what can I do to determine the true cycle count? Maybe it is 732, but if it is, I think I want my 20 bucks back.
Is this a good question?
