My only problem with the Forma is the battery: I have to charge it at least once a day. But then, I read hours at a time, especially at night.
I read hours at a time daily and I only have to charge my Forma once every 3 weeks or so. Perhaps your light settings is too high or you don't have it on flight mode?

I upgraded from the Aura One to the Forma as soon as it came out, I've been only using the Forma ever since. Beforethen I used the Aura One at home and the Kindle Oasis 2 on the go, the Forma is just the best of both worlds to me.

I always have the wi-fi turned off, except once in a blue moon when I update Pocket, but I do like the light setting high during the day, and the comfort light on at night, which I understand is a drain on charge too.
I wouldn't be comfortable reading otherwise, but I've always done likewise for my other devices, and only had a similar problem with the One.

I'd be careful about the sauna thing, the max operating temp is 113F

I'd be careful about the sauna thing, the max operating temp is 113F. Likely, the most that would happen is that it would turn off but that heat isn't good.

Have the KA1 but bit the bullet and bought the Kobo Forma. I'm not sure I see a dark band, I keep the brightness around 5-8%. Its lightweight and easy to hold. However I find he KA1 with a pop socket easier to hold than the Forma. Ordered for a sleeve as well.
