As previously stated by many, the Quest 3 apparently can`t charge while using the direct link cable supplied by Meta for THEIR product. Not only that, controller battery life is horrendous. I use VR for my flight simulators and only use my right controller to initially set things up. I don't even use the left controller at this time. The headset drops below 80% within an hour. In a month, the right controller shows 40% and the left shows 60% (fresh Duracell plus batteries installed). I have felt the headset and don't see any levels of excessive heat. This issue needs to be resolved and not passed off as operating normally.
