I don't really think it's hard on your battery. Resetting your phone after flashing is always a good thing, for it wipes the remainings of the previous ROM, thus minimizing the chance of recurring or any new bugs. Also, it's good for performance :]

That's a really silly thing to worry about. As long as you don't manage to brick your phone (very very low chance), it's fine.

really it's nothing to worry about
all you can see in battery performance changes, is that, the custom rom sucks up more battery
