How many times can you charge an iPhone battery before it goes kaput? I aks because I'm currently charging my iPhone 5 about 3 times every 2 days.

Usually 1000 charges will half battery capacity. Could be more depending on charging habits.
Another 1000 charges will half remaining capacity again.

Appr 300-500 full cycles at 100% before you see a drop in performance... thereafter?
Other factors play into: overheating takes its toll.
Charging to 100 % has recently been fingered as a culprit for early decay, though that study was questioned by other experts.
Dropping to "0" too often isn't good, either...
And yes: dropping it etc...
You'll know it when it's time, I suppose.
