  • Probably 1500, at least 1000.

    Apple seems to have licensed Sanyo's Eneloop technology to create these. Sanyo's excellent Eneloop cells claim a service life of 1000 cycles in their first generation model; if these have not been improved since they were initially designed, you can count on a service life of 1000 uses. If they have undergone continual improvement, they may match the newest eneloop at 2500; it is most likely that these are based on the second-generation eneloop (based on the stated and tested capacity, and how that capacity is claimed - using minimum and typical capacities, and identical numbers for each - on the cell's wrapper being identical) at 1500 charge-cycles

    Once again: Probably 1500, at least 1000.
