Quest 3 Elite Strap with Battery issues


I would like to buy the Q3 Elite strap with battery however I red its having a lot of issues. Meta retired the strap from the market until dec 2023 and now it is back on sales on Meta store only. Not Amazon, or other stores... (why ? it is a sign of defect and still too much return items ?) 

Morevower, I red on this forum (the conversation named "Quest 3 Elite Strap with Battery only connects for a few seconds") many customers had a replacement by META and still face same problem even on the new Elite just received in Dec'23-Gen'24 (then after META restarted the sales).

I sill have doubt if to buy or wait a little more time. What is your suggestions ? 

Do you have a good Meta elite strap with battery working without issues ? (I would like to avoid to buy thirth party product)


Honored Guest

I’m facing the same dilemma. I wanna have the elite strap with additional battery but don’t want to buy defective product. Would be nice to have official response from Meta about it.

At the end I decided to purchase the original meta strap with battery.

I am using it since 20 days and so far is good. I believe and hope that the initial problem is definitely solved.


Meta has now launched a replacement programme for effected serial numbers. I would certainly buy with confidence (I love mine!)
