Upgrading from quest 2 to a quest 3

Honored Guest

I have all the accessories for the quest 2 but I'm thinking about upgrading for the quest 3 will the battery strap, the case and the link cable for quest 2 still work for a quest 3? 

Thanks in advance

The link cable will work. The battery strap and case will not, sadly.

Hey there @oculus_Joren! We're glad to hear that you're thinking about upgrading to a Quest 3! The mixed reality features are quite a step up from the Quest 2. The link cable you have now should work just fine for either device, as they both use USB3 with a type C connector. The Quest 3 is smaller in size than the 2, however, and so it would not fit as snugly in the carrying case you have.


We hope this addresses all of the questions you had, please let us know if there is anything else we can assist with!
