"Interesting! Can you tell me how many cycles is on that battery and how much it used to last new, for reference"

I have no idea how many cycles it has, but I can tell you that I have used it almost every day for the last 2 years.

In the office I plug it in to it's docking station, at home I use the standard charger. I travel twice a week on the train which represents about 4 hours of battery only usage.

I also use it a lot at the weekends, sometimes for gaming, work, web.. The battery is fully depleted/charged every 2 or 3 days, sometime I forget to plug it in at home or I forget to turn it off etc...

I don't have it with me at this moment but I can check tonight if you want. Is it actually possible to know the number of cycles, if so by which means.

I am more than happy to share the details.
