Keep the Oculus Quest or Quest 2 charged with one of these battery packs

A fully charged Oculus Quest or Meta Quest 2 will give you about two to three hours of battery life, but if you have one of the best Quest battery packs, you can go even longer. For some players, the built-in battery is not nearly long enough for a good gaming session in most of the best Quest 2 games or for an extended media session in an app like Netflix. Battery packs are some of the best Oculus Quest accessories and can double, or even triple, the battery life of your headset.

The perfect pairing

Quest 2 Elite Strap with Battery

The Quest 2 Elite Strap comes with a battery pack built-in for extra playtime while keeping with the same design language and quality you've come to expect from your Quest 2. Besides increasing the comfort of your headset, the battery offers double the playtime and can be charged at the same time as your Quest 2 without needing to unplug it.

Best Oculus Quest 2 and Oculus Quest battery packs

The most important thing when choosing an external battery pack for the Quest or Oculus Quest 2 is that it must support 5V 2.4amp charging. There are many batteries on the market with those stats, but there are many other things to consider, such as size and how long they will hold a charge.

The Quest 2 Elite Strap with Battery is one of the more expensive solutions to your battery issues on the Quest but it provides a much more complete solution. Not only does this strap improve the comfort of your headset but the battery can double your playtime. Besides that, it's a perfect match for the Quest 2's design. Furthermore, both batteries can be charged at once without needing to disconnect meaning you don't need to worry about charging yet another accessory to maximize your VR playtime.

Any of these power banks will let you stay in VR longer. Depending on your needs, some banks may be more suitable than others. We recommend the Destek Power Capsule as the easiest way to keep your Quest 2 alive for longer without any hassle. Using it is as easy as plugging in the little pill-shaped battery and playing for another 90 minutes.

Apple Has 'Very Serious' DMA Issues, EU to Enforce Rules 'Soon'

Apple is facing a "number" of "very serious" issues with its Digital Markets Act compliance in Europe, EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in an interview with CNBC . The European Commission opened an investigation into Apple in March to determine if Apple's EU app marketplace changes were complying with DMA regulations. The DMA requires Apple to provide developers with an option to distribute apps outside of the App Store and without ‌App Store‌'s fees. Apple implemented support for app marketplaces with iOS 17.4, but it charges an 0.50 euro Core Technology Fee for each download after the initial 1 million annual installs. Vestager does not believe that Apple's changes meet the requirements of the DMA. "We have a number of Apple issues; I find them very serious," she said. "I was very surprised that we would have such suspicions of Apple being non-compliant." She went on to say that this implementation "

U.S. Government Sues Adobe for Hidden Termination Fees When Canceling Subscription

The United States Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission today levied a lawsuit against Adobe [ PDF ] for imposing a hidden termination fee on subscribers who want to cancel their Adobe plans. Adobe is accused of forcing subscribers to "navigate a complex and challenging cancellation process designed to deter them from cancelling subscriptions they no longer wanted." Adobe offers its Creative Cloud products on a subscription basis, with fees that are paid monthly. A monthly payment suggests that it's possible to cancel anytime, but that's not how Adobe works because most customers are actually locked into a hidden annual agreement. Customers who sign up for a free trial and are then charged and signed up to the default Creative Cloud plan, which is actually an annual contract. Canceling the annual contract requires customers to pay a lump sum of 50 percent of the "remaining contractual obligation" to cancel, despite the fact that servic
