The Oculus Quest 2 has been flying off the shelves since Meta released it in late 2020. As it is a standalone VR device, you may be wondering how long the battery lasts on VR headsets. After all, Oculus does not publish the size of the battery, only strict guidelines for long-term use.
As a standalone device, it uses wireless communication. That is always the only battery, but so does the use of displays that provide images of something that is not real. Maybe you want to know how long you will be able to play before you charge. Can you prolong that time?
So, what is the real battery life of Oculus Quest 2?
Short answer: About two hours of play, and three hours of movie watching, etc.
As always, battery life counts are based on what you do on your Oculus Quest 2. If you use it to watch movies or other media, or to play small games at low refresh rates, you will get about three hours of use. . Game usage, especially at 120Hz refresh rates, drags down for up to two hours.

The good news is that you can use the Oculus Quest 2 while charging. You will restrict movement due to cable, but you can also add a battery pack to extend playback time.
Oculus sells Quest 2 Elite Strap with Battery Pack, which doubles the playing time. Companies like Rebuff Reality sell larger battery packs that go into the belt. You can even plug things in with any battery pack that pulls out the USB-C cable.
