bad for the battery is correct. but this device has such a poor e-ink screen compared to the modern screens that i don't use it for reading anyway. the battery issue is moot because i could just plug it in to change the image when needed, set the newly uploaded image as the static image each time i need to change it. then unplug for it to remain static. in this sense, it may even be better not to have a battery installed. but i'm not sure it will even power on without a battery to go through.
