Title:

How many cycles does this computer's replacement battery have?

Text:

I installed a replacement battery from iFixit for my MacBook Pro back in April 2017. As of today the battery has sustained 457 cycles. Apple says their batteries will last for 1000 cycles until they need to be replaced. I would like to know how many cycles the aftermarket replacement battery should be able to go through.  I ask this because this battery has expanded to a point where it prevents most of the laptop's trackpad from clicking. This did not happen with the original Apple battery, and I wonder if it may be due to poor design of the aftermarket battery.
