Temporarily remember passphrase?

I often decrypt several files in quick succession (with a simple script).

Is it possible to have gpg remember my passphrase, only very
temporarily? (Perhaps for 10 seconds or so.)

I've looked into gpg-agent, and tried using the --use-agent option
with gpg, but I can't find much documentation on the matter, or even
whether or not this is the best approach.
