Are Oculus Quest 2 controllers rechargeable?

So you have a new Oculus Quest 2 virtual reality headset. Enjoyment awaits you with immersive VR experiences such as games, films and interactive elements.

Take it from us, nothing will break your immersion faster than running out of batteries in your controllers.

You want to know how to charge your Oculus Quest 2 controllers so you’re prepared. Can they be charged at all or do you need more batteries to swap? We tell you everything you need to know.

So can you charge the Oculus Quest 2 controllers?

Short answer: No, they need batteries

The controllers that come with the Oculus Quest 2 each use an AA battery. That means you can’t just charge the controllers; You will need some batteries. We like the loyal eneloops that are worth every penny. We found that they charge better and have more charge cycles than the competition.

Now you know what you need. It is time to tell you how to replace these batteries. Hold the controller in one or both hands and look for the eject symbol on the handle. It’s a chevron shape with either R or L on it depending on which controller you’re holding. Slide that away from you, in the direction the wedge is pointing.

The battery compartment lid slides off so you can replace the AA battery. Once it’s in, slide the cover back on.

We think Oculus chose replaceable batteries to get you back up and running faster. You will be happy about that if you are enthusiastic about VR experiences.
