The first thing you must do to ensure the battery life of the Oculus is to plug it in to charge.
You can do this through the Oculus app.
Simply click on the icon and the four dots beneath it will represent a charge of 25%.
The charging progress is also visible with the light on the right side of the device.
Battery indicator light
If you notice that the Battery indicator light on your Oculus has become orange, it is probably because you’re running low on battery power.
In order to get a full charge, you need to plug your Oculus into a USB-C port.
Once the device is charged, the battery indicator light will turn from orange to green.
If you’ve used the Oculus for a long time, it may be a good idea to take a break from using it for a while so that it can cool down.
If you’re concerned, you should contact Oculus Support.
Another way to keep your Oculus’ battery charged is to turn it off when it’s not in use.
Left on all day can result in a significantly slower charge than it should.
You can do this by holding down the power button on your Oculus for several seconds.
After this, you should hear a sound of shutting down, and your Oculus will shut down.
Auto wake-up feature
If you’re tired of constantly waking up your Oculus headset, try disabling its auto wake-up feature.
This feature turns your headset on and off based on the proximity of another device nearby, but it can be very draining on battery life.
This feature also reduces the speed at which your headset charges.
Disabling the auto wake feature on your Oculus Quest can solve the problem, but be sure to follow the instructions carefully.
Disabling auto wake could damage your headset and can lead to charging problems.
You should also turn off the feature if your headset is too hot, which will cause the battery to drain faster than normal.
The Oculus is a wireless headset that takes around two and a half hours to charge completely.
You should avoid using it while it is charging, and try to turn it off or put it in sleep mode.
This will minimize the battery’s general wear and tear.
It also prevents overcharging.
You can check the charging status of your Oculus headset on the Oculus App.
This will let you know how much charge is left in the headset and how long it will take to charge.
The battery in your Oculus is lithium-ion, which means it will degrade over time.
A study by Battery University showed that a seventy-five-percent charge cycle was the best option for battery performance and capacity.
The percentage of charge you use and the environmental temperature also have a big effect on the battery health of the Oculus.
You can monitor the charge status of your Oculus through the Oculus App, but it is best to unplug the headset when it is fully charged to avoid overcharging it.
However, you can always charge it during the day to avoid overcharging the battery.
Unplugging the headset will preserve the charge and will reduce general wear on the battery.
However, it is not advisable to use it while charging, since it could damage the charging port.
The battery life of the Oculus Quest 2 is very long, so you can leave it on the charger overnight.
However, it is recommended to unplug it before going to bed.
If you do not want to unplug the headset before bed, you can play a game or two while the headset is charging.
If your Oculus headset keeps turning off while it’s charging, it may be a hardware issue.
Some issues can be fixed by following the steps below; others may require repair or replacement.
The key is to make sure to follow the steps one at a time.
Never try to solve two issues at once.
A flat battery is the most obvious cause.
Other problems may be more complicated, like a partial software update.
If you aren’t sure what’s causing the issue, try rebooting the Oculus headset by holding the Volume Down and Power buttons for at least 20 seconds.
