I got my touch controllers at launch and I've been using the included AA batteries. Last week the right touch controller stopped working and I noticed it's battery was completely dead, while the left hand controller still has full power left in the battery.
Is anyone else noticed the right hand controller draining battery is faster than the left hand? I asume they don't get approximatlely the same amount of use, so it seems odd that the right one would be completely dead while the left controller still has full power.
Mostly just got a bad set of batteries from Oculus?
Sounds like someone has been using their right hand way more than their left in VR. hmmm.. 😘
first time you have ever made me LOL.. Nice...
on topic. My controller indicators went from full to dead in the matter of three hours. Of course I had been using them since launch and this was about two weeks ago. But I do believe there may be something off with the way the controllers measure the battery?
Maybe it is because of the haptics (and the dominant hand).
Yep, the right hand is more likely to have vibration due to shooting guns and interacting with stuff, which will drain the battery faster (at least a little bit).
But a lot of people also say the right controller is more likely to glitch (I've had that too). Could it be glitching because it's battery is lower due to vibration motors? Or is there a fault in the design that makes it drain faster than the left? Are left handed people finding the left controller glitches more than the right or loses power first?
Having thrashed my Touch controllers for over a month I had to change out my original batteries yesterday and did notice one side used a lot more battery than the other.Have to say Oculus really hit a home run with these controllers the batteries lasted ages and changing them was really easy.
