Spend less time charging.
A fully charged Oculus Quest or Meta Quest 2 will give you about 2-3 hours of battery life, but if you have one of the best Quest battery packs, you can go even longer. For some households, the built-in battery is not nearly long enough for a good gaming session or for an extended media session, especially if the kids are sharing a headset. Battery packs are some of the best accessories you can get for your Quest and can double, or even triple, the battery life of your headset.

Best Oculus Quest 2 and Oculus Quest battery packs
The most important thing when choosing an external battery pack for the Meta Quest or Oculus Quest 2 is that it should support 5V 2.4A for optimal performance. There are many batteries on the market with those stats, but there are many other things to consider, such as size and how long they will hold a charge. Still, connecting a battery pack can extend your gaming sessions in the best Quest 2 games without needing to seek out a wall charger every time you take a break.
The Quest 2 Elite Strap with Battery is one of the more expensive solutions to your battery issues on the Quest but it provides a much more complete solution. Not only does this strap improve the comfort of your headset but the battery can double your playtime. Besides that, it’s a perfect match for the Quest 2’s design. Furthermore, both batteries can be charged at once without needing to disconnect meaning you don’t need to worry about charging yet another accessory to maximize your VR playtime.
Any of these power banks will let you stay in VR longer. Depending on your needs, some banks may be more suitable than others. We recommend the Destek Power Capsule as the easiest way to keep your Quest 2 alive for longer without any hassle. Using it is as easy as plugging in the little pill-shaped battery and playing for another 90 minutes.
