Will steam games take up space on device? If you're looking for a way to extend the amount of play time toucan get with your Quest2, check out the Elite Strap With Battery accessory.
To maximize the life of your internal battery, we recommend that you fully power-down, or turn off, the device when it's not in use, rather than just putting it to sleep. This is especially important if you'll be traveling with your Quest2 or Quest, or carrying it in a bag or a case.
Leaving your Quest2 or Quest on the charger after it has been fully charged can reduce the overall battery life over time. If you aren’t planning to use your headset after charging, power it off after unplugging.
Please note, if you’re having trouble getting your Quest2 or Quest charger to fit correctly in a wall outlet, you may need to adjust the position of the grounding pin. When your headset is in sleep mode, power will still drain from the device, although much more slowly than when it’s in use.
If both batteries are fully charged, the LED will turn green. If the Elite Strap is providing a charge to the headset, the LED will turn orange.
It will remain red until the combined battery level goes back above 10%, or the headset is turned off. The Oculus Quest’s biggest advantage is that it’s a mobile headset, allowing you to play cord-free and untethered room scale experiences wherever you like.
However, this means the Quest runs off a limited internal battery and will require charging in-between long play sessions. Using the cable that comes included with your Oculus Quest is the best option if you’re looking for a quick solution, and you don’t want to spend any additional money.
The cable included with the Quest is quite lengthy, likely with the intention of it being an option for playing and charging at the same time (but despite its length, it does not meet the requirements for Oculus Link). Simply plug the included cable into the Quest and wall outlet as usual, and continue playing.
If you do use the included cable, we recommend finding a way to secure it to the back of your Quest head strap. This will allow it to flow neatly down your back and make cable management much easier.
If your computer or another device has a USB-C port, toucan plug your Quest into that to chargewhileyou play as well, instead of using the wall outlet. Keep in mind your limited warranty doesn’t cover normal wear and tear or physical damages.
The cases shown below can help protect your headset when you go from exploring in-VR, to traveling in the real world. Keep in mind, both of these cases prioritize portability, which means that it was designed to hold everything that came with your headset, and nothing that didn't.
The Quest2 case can carry your Oculus Quest2 headset, along with an Elite Strap or Elite Strap With Battery, two Touch controllers, charging cable and power adapter. The case can help provide protection for your headset, touch controllers, charging cable, adapter, and extra batteries, while keeping everything together in a single convenient package.
The included lanyards are used to secure the Oculus Quest2 or Quest controllers to your wrists during use. On the inside edge of your controller, below the open battery compartment, you'll see a circular cutout.
Slide the plastic end of your lanyard into the small hole in the center of the circular cutout. When the lanyard is seated correctly, the plastic piece sits entirely inside the hole.
Before using, pull down on your lanyard to ensure it's securely connected to the controller and doesn't unseat the battery cover. To start, you'll want to gently adjust the lenses by shifting them left, then right until they click into the position that allows you to see what's on the screen most clearly.
Keep in mind, you'll need to remove the headset from your head to re-adjust the side straps with the sliders. Place the headset on your head, then remove it and make any additional adjustments to the side straps as needed.
You can adjust the top strap by pulling apart the Velcro and re-attaching it so that your Quest 2 rests lightly on your face and the picture is clear. Slide the back loop of the head strap over one of the detached firm arms.
Move the head strap back to its original position so that it's centered between the side straps. Slide the Velcro part of the strap through the plastic loop at the top of the headset.
Follow the fit steps listed above to adjust your headset until it's resting lightly on your face, and the picture is clear. Cosmetic wear and tear and physical damages are not covered under warranty.
Use a dry optical lens micro-fiber cloth to clean your headset lenses. I received it earlier this month, along with news that this would be Oculus's cheapest “all-in-one” VR system yet: starting at $299 and shipping on October 13.
Attachment of a social media account and its massive Web of personally identifying data (as accumulated by everything from service log-ins to average Web-browsing cookies) to computing hardware (VR headsets, phones, computers, TVs, etc) is quite frankly an irresponsible move on Facebook's part. But let's say you already bought into Oculus hardware or software in the past, or you've made your peace with the company's Facebookening.
Or maybe in spite of all the bad news, you'd make a deal with the Mephi-zuck-eles for a higher-performing, “all-in-one” Oculus Quest that's now powered by a Snapdragon 865-equivalent SoC with more RAM, more pixels, and a higher refresh rate. If that's where you land, you'll eventually find a different bummer about Oculus Quest2 : how desperate Facebook is to get the price down to that magical $299 number.
It seemed like every single day that I tested this device in the pre-release period, I discovered some new corner-cutting issue that wasn't worth the savings. Those piled up to the point where Facebook will need to launch a Quest 2 +” revision before I'm ready to recommend this headset.
New box, with a much different, less sleek aesthetic compared to prior Oculus releases. Yes, my original Oculus Touch 1 controllers have lived a long and full life.
Oculus Quest2 should look familiar, as its design language and general form factor are nearly identical to the original VR system that launched in March 2019 starting at $399. Both versions have four outward-facing cameras to track your nearby environs, so toucan put the headset on anywhere and expect a convincing “transportation” effect inside VR.
This “inside-out” tracking model can be found in most Windows Mixed Reality headsets, and it differs from systems like HTC Five and Valve Index, which won't work without infrared-spewing “tracking boxes” installed in your preferred playing space. Advertisement Unlike most other VR headsets, the Quest line does not require connections to a PC or console.
Strap it onto your face, map out a “playing space” inside your home using your hands, and Quest2's internal hardware will do all the 3D rendering. Quest2's pair of hand-tracked controllers include the same array of buttons, triggers, and joysticks as the first version, along with the same “halo” construction to hold their infrared sensors.
Facebook's reps mentioned that the controllers were redesigned with an emphasis on increased battery life and comfort, which I found curious. This is when Facebook reps claimed that Quest2's controllers have fewer infrared sensor points: “We're able to find computer vision algorithms tuned to achieve the same tracking in fewer LEDs, thus less power,” a Facebook representative told Ars Technica.
I went back to compare tricky “expert” Beat Saber levels on both Quest 1 and Quest2, and sure enough, the older controller is noticeably more accurate. It's hard to perfectly measure VR controller detection without access to verbose data logs (which I've used to diagnose issues with Steamer in the past).
But I can safely say that after an hour going back and forth between Quest 1 and 2, the number of lost swipes on the newer hardware was higher. ET : Since this article went live, we've seen infrared camera footage from Tested confirming an identical number of LED bulbs in both generations of Quest controllers, which puts Facebook's original statement into question.
The FB rep may have been describing a downgrade in frequency or power for those LED bulbs in Quest2 controllers.] Having a wider pad on top of the controller to rest my thumb doesn't alleviate the issue.
It feels clumsy and obnoxious every single time, and its shape does a bad job of properly distributing the headset's weight.
