My understanding is that a factor in the battery life is the number of times it has been recharged, with lithium-ion batteries good for about 500 recharges. Based on that figure, if you charge it once a day the battery is good for about 16 months. Also, per Wikipedia ( temperature can be a factor in the life of the battery.

I recently had to replace my ebook reader (a Sony PRS-505) due to the battery wearing out. After about 2 years of regular use the battery life had dropped to less than 1 hour of use on a charge.
