Dumb battery cycling is not going to compete with *very* sophisticated modern battery management systems and management firmware. Just plug it in and use it. Leverage smart charge/slow change capability if your devices have that (like iPhone slow charging over night). As an example my MBP is sitting here at ~80% SOC (State of charge) with the charger automatically disabled by the BMS, it's not even bothering to trickle charge the battery at the moment, but the AC adapter is powering most of the MBP.

If you are deliberately cycling a battery like you describe you are wearing it out, the simplest battery aging model is based on # charge cycles.

What was the previous last thing common advice... NiCd batteries needed to be cycled to avoid "memory effects". That was always utter BS.
