Battery on Sonos Move

Does it shorten the long term life of the battery on the Sonos Move to leave it on the charging cradle for extended periods of time (e.g. several weeks)?

I asked a similar question and Ryan S replied the Move is designed to be left on the charging Cradle so it remains fully charged and ready for use.

I have had my Move for a few weeks now and I find the battery life to be terrible.  I don't know if that is because I tend to leave it on the base.  I love the speaker but the battery only lasts a couple of hours before it is depleted.  Anyone else seeing this?

I have had my move for several weeks as well and use it roughly three or four times a week.

In the first two weeks of use the battery would reduce by about 55 to 65% too 35% of remaining charge with moderate volume, volume level 3 to 4 requested of Alexa, and that is for 6 hours of continuous use.

Now it is around 45% reduction down to 55% of remaining charge over the 6 hour continuous use period, so it does appear the battery is becoming more efficient in my case. 
I will however closely monitor the battery charge and let you know if there are any changes.
