Will batteries drain quicker when base disconnected?

Got an Arlo around Thanksgiving and due to some recent house reconfiguration, I had the base disconnected for about 15 days. Battery was at 96% before I disconnected, today when I plugged it all back in the battery is at 3%.

Would having the base disconnected kill the battery in the Arlo camera?

Yes, the Arlo cam keeps trying to connect back, using the max power...sort of like a cell phone
