Battery Life of Oculus Quest 2
So, how long does Oculus Quest 2’s battery last? It is a very important question to ask because the Oculus Quest is wireless. It will not make for the best of experiences when you are in the middle of playing a game or exploring when suddenly you get the battery beep.
You can expect the battery life to last you about 2-3 hours. The reviews say that if you are looking at the gaming ability, the battery lasts for 2 hours. While it may last you an hour longer in case you decide to watch movies. The charging of the device also takes about 2.5 hours.
What can you do to prolong the Oculus headset’s Battery life?
There are some suggestions to make the most of the battery life on your Oculus Quest 2.
1) Do not try to charge the headset for more than the specified time. Unplug the charger as soon as it shows full charging.
2) If you are not using the headset, do not leave it in sleep mode and just power it off instead.
3) The company suggests that you only make use of the charger that is provided in the box.
If none of that works for you, and you need even more time on your device, you can use add-ons like the Elite strap. The device uses the elite strap battery before using the device battery. This gives you more time to enjoy the device.
