    Will the LED notifications make the battery drain? Does the LED affect the battery greatly?

    The LED DOES use power. How much depends on how much it is used.

    If I get a notification like once every 5 mins will the fone die faster?

    I don't think you'd notice much difference between using the LED and not. The duty cycle is very low when the LED flashes (the LED is only on for a very short period of time). For all except an alarm, timer, or call, it only flashes a couple of times. So even if you did get a constant stream of notifications, I doubt the hit on battery life would be significant.
