Use ioreg command to get battery cycle count

This article is more specific than the others posted. It says the lifetime of a lithiumi-ion battery is in the range of 300-500 cycles.

interesting, my ibook's battery has a Cycle Count of 865. my Capacity is down to 2858, which is still decent considering its age. (the capacity used to be as high as 3530)
