Will increasing the storage capacity of 16GB iPhone SE 1st Gen to 32GB affect the performance or battery life in any negative way? Can it lead to unexpected shutdowns? I was planning to increase the storage to 32GB since 16Gb is too less for me.

How do you plan to do that?
But regardless, increasing the storage should have minimal impact on battery life.

I'm sorry to say, but I don't think that it's possible to increase your iPhone's storage capacity.

The phone will use more battery for additional storage - simply because those storage chips need to be powered.
This said, it's going to be insignificant, because other things you do on your phone have a much greater impact on the battery, like the apps you're running.

I've also seen advertisements for flash drives. I've never used one with my devices, and wonder if that would be a viable option.
