Badger 2040 - optimization to prolong the lifetime?

Hi,

I wonder if I could get some details about the manufacture / model of the E-Ink display used in the Badger 2040.

I am thinking about the E-Ink expected lifetime. I am not experienced in E-Ink technology - it’s my first E-Paper device (not counting Amazon Kindle). That’s why I am concerned.

Some vendors of 2.9" E-ink like WaveShare mention 1000 000 refreshes / 5 years. Whatever the 5 years means here.
The number isn’t impressive - the clock app refreshing the display every 1 sec would reach 1000000 cycles within only 12 days.

Not sure if my understanding is correct, whether 1000 000 means something meaningful from the practical standpoint.

I will appreciate any comments.
Bogdan
