depends on your particular drive. If your commute is during the day and you drive with lights/heater fan/radio off. restarting once is really not going to make much of a difference. If you drive both ways (or one way) in the cold and dark with lights on and/or the heater on high, and always have the radio blasting (Like me), The amount of time your battery will go between charges will be greatly deminished. The question is mostly will your car make it to work and back on a single charge, a 15 minute commute? I'm thinking it wont be an issue. recharging a battery is NOT a bad thing. and, in fact, you battery will probably last longer with occasional full charges than it would with a constant trickle.
