Anyone find the USB C cable falls out easily?

There is no way I could play with it plugged in, it just constantly comes out even while charging, it just doesn't stay in there.

Mine's pretty tight. I'd probably avoid using the headset with it plugged into the charger though... tripping over the cable could be enough to develop a loose fitting.

I guess if you're just using it seated, that's not a risk. But then if your seated and stationary, the plug falling out shouldn't be too much of a problem either!

I'll be using a battery pack for extended sessions but I need to get a USB to USB-C cable or a USB-C power bank.

Hmm mine is really loose, maybe I'll send it back, it just falls out sitting there if I move it... never had that from any other device before.

Just checking, but are you sure it's plugged in fully? Black part of plug is seated against edge of Quest on mine...kinda snaps in.

This. Mine goes in a bit lose and then clicks in place. Can play whilst plugged into a battery pack no problem.

Mine is nice and secure, but I did stupidly get the cable tangled in my swivel chair and ripped the plug off the charger end ... I use a back up battery now with a 1m usb to usbc cable (Samsung S8 cable).

It clicks, but just is so loose and wobbles. It’s a weird port, I’m used to Lightning which is nice and magnetic... is USB C this poor? I thought it would be magnetic too.

Sounds like it got pulled on pretty hard a few times if it’s that loose...I actually have a zip tie on the side of my headset that’s around the USB cable so the tension doesn’t hit the port if I duck/stray too far. I know some people just play with the cable hanging around them, which is utterly insane to me, because no USB port in the world is made to with stand the pressure put on it if you step on that cable and jerk it.

Velcro it to the headset and something near the pc for some strain relief.  else you'll eventually break something.
