You break something. The contact system even with the wrong material is somewhere about 500 cycles but with the proper material is well into the 10,000 and up range.
2. Not a firm number but you get 10,000 to 1,000,000 erase cycles. Now this is actually a number higher since that refers to single bank or cell erasures and only when you "flip the bit".
