As mentioned, you don't need quotes inside your if statement

1)There shouldn't be quotes inside your if statement

2)Use the equality operator instead of the assignment operator

3)Include an else statement

public boolean isFullyCharged() {
   if (barCount == MAX_BARS) {
 return true; 
   } else {
   return false;
   }
 }

its still saying error

You have an extra closing parenthesis at the bottom of the code.

If you remove this the code will compile, but because of the IF statement condition being a quoted string it will give you unwanted results.
