Oculus quest 2 battery drains fast

ZyloKun

I just got my oculus quest 2 today and after the first charge the battery lasted a long time 2+ hours. But after the 2nd time charging the headset the battery power on the headset is draining very quickly 1% every 1-2 mins. This was my Christmas gift and I just got it today. What could be causing the battery to drain so quickly?

Read the comment from the user "bushmaster2000".

The makers of the meta quest 2 should change the charging power cable from USB-C to USB-C to a low 5 volt or lower D/C adapter. I notice sometimes with even things like my old cell phone that USB-C has problems with charging and with problems with the battery and USB-A or USB-C all together should be avoided and a D/C adapter should be used instead.

 

So my meta quest 2 I just got is already broken because the stock cable (the one that came with the headset) had broken the unit because the usb-c to usb-c is too high powered, and it's not a good quality cable either. So i'll be sending this meta quest 2 back and either getting our money back or sending another one that doesn't use USB to charge the headset.
