So been going around amazon and struggling to find company that NOT made in China like INIU and don't wanna damage my headset so any advice on someone who can only afford 512gb meta 3 headset (for now) to have longer experience gameplay (want to last more than 4-5 hours and also longer charging cable) since Rift S is like more 4m (13') ?

I ordered a 16 feet UGREEN cable from Amazon. One side is a straight USB-C connector, the other an angled one with a velcro loop to secure the connection.

I has been working flawlessly with my Quest 3 for months now. More than decent price too.

So Ugreen ?

Hi there, @Drakeos! We definitely would like to make sure you're having a smooth PCVR experience with your headset, so we wanted to jump in and recommend checking out our official Link cable right here. Be sure your PC meets the minimum requirements to support Quest Link as well!  Regarding charging, please keep in mind that our engineers suggest using the provided cable as a charger for the best experience with your headset battery overtime. Let us know if you have any questions!

What about battery packs any recommendation ?

Great question, @Drakeos! The Meta Quest 3 Elite Strap with Battery is the only battery pack we can recommend for your headset, as we're able to fully guarantee it's compatibility. It'll be able to extend your headset's battery for up to two hours, so we certainly want you to check that out if you're interested! Keep in mind though, it's not possible to use the Link cable with the elite strap with battery. Get back to us with any further inquiries! We're always happy to hear from you!

Sorry buget is $1100 aud 😞 any reccomendation for longer battery life

Thank you for reaching back out to us, @Drakeos! Being as the Meta Quest 3 Elite Strap with Battery is the only battery extender we can recommend, there are other tips to keep in mind in order to maximize your headset's battery health and life in this article. Absolutely give that a look over! For the Quest 3 specifically, keep in mind that can provide on average 2.2 hours of use across a variety of activities. Some activities, such as Mixed Reality and Virtual Meetings, are more demanding and may result in shorter battery life. Though you can extend the battery life by switching on Battery Saver mode from the power settings menu, this may reduce graphic quality. Keep us updated if any other questions pop up!

Yes. It allows me to either use PCVR (for MS Flight Simulator for example) or simply to extend playtime with the Quest 3.

Here is a link to the cable I have.
