So I've been playing flight simulators for quite a while and I decided to try out in VR. It's great, I love it. One very annoying point is that the headset can't maintain a charge while plugged in to the PC, and AirLink is entirely useless (the lag is extreme when whipping your head around to track an enemy in a dogfight).
Before I spring for the strap, is it possible to stay plugged in while using the battery? Five hours of game time each weekend isn't nearly enough. Honestly wishing I'd just gotten a secondhand Rift S instead, but I can't return this now.
@RichyRich74 The answer is actually contained in the Elite strap with battery product description. It is not compatible with Link because the usb-c Elite battery charge point does not allow data transfer. If you want to use Link you need to unplug the Elite battery beforehand.
I prefer to use Air Link with my Q2/rtx3090 and in that case I can leave the Elite battery connected and this then gives me 4-5 hours runtime with all my games and sims. If I need longer runtimes I can connect my Q2 charger or an external battery pack to the Elite battery charge port.
If you don’t have a good router/WiFi setup and need to use link then I recommend searching the Amazon store for the 16ft Kuject powered link cable. It uses your Q2 charger/cable to help maintain your headset battery at about 80%. Like all link cables you should start off with a fully charged headset battery.
