Keep Quest/GO plugged in at 100% charge at all times?

The Quest battery seems to retain a charge better than the GO which I have to keep plugged in at all times to ensure I can use it for more than 1 hour because it discharges so fast.  But this got me thinking...is it ok to keep our wireless headsets (Quest and GO) plugged in at all times when 100% charged?   (I don't know if this will harm the battery or not.  I have both headsets on stands and plugged in at all times so they are ready to go.)
Rift-S, Quest 128GB, GO 64GB.

    Use a power bank instead. I have the Anker powercore 20000 with qc3 and 3amp port. You should get 7hrs total playtime. Charge the quest to 100% and your power bank too then just connect. I have a USB to USB C magnetic cable.
