Constantly adding books - battery effects?

Hi all.

I realise this is really a generic lithium battery question but ce'st la vie. I'm still at the stage where every day or so I get hold of a few more epubs, play with them in sigil and calibre, and load them onto the kobo to see how they look. Often I get an ebook not looking like I want it to, so I plug the kobo back in for another 2 minutes to reload the file.

So the outcome is that my kobo is getting plugged in multiple times a day for 2-5 minutes at a time, and getting a little bit of recharge each time. Does anyone know if this has an impact on battery life? Li batteries are supposedly good for several hundred recharges, but does each 5 minute recharge count towards this total? I hope not, as I don't have the patience to wait until the kobo is flat before loading new content
