    Breaking in a new battery.
    Does the battery on the new MBP need to be broken in as is the case with other lithium ion batteries. My understanding is that new batteries usually require 3-5 complete discharge/charge cycles for optimal performance to kick in. Is that so with the latest Apple battery as well?

    Only thing you need to do is calibrate the battery.
