"Let's make it so it will only charge until the battery reports being fully charged"... could this be rephrased?

This is a bit misleading and I'm not quite sure what is being asked? I'm sure it's simple but I don't seem to be making the connection when I write the code.

public class GoKart {
  public static final int MAX_ENERGY_BARS = 8;
  private String mColor;
  private int mBarsCount;

  public GoKart(String color) {
    mColor = color;
    mBarsCount = 0;

  public String getColor() {
    return mColor;

  public void charge() {
    while(mBarsCount != MAX_ENERGY_BARS)
      mBarsCount = isFullyCharged;
      System.out.println("Battery is fully charged");    

  public boolean isBatteryEmpty() {
    return mBarsCount == 0;

  public boolean isFullyCharged() {
    return mBarsCount == MAX_ENERGY_BARS;
