Maximise the battery life of your Meta Quest headset
Power down when not in use
To maximise the life of your internal battery, we recommend that you fully power down or turn off the device when it's not in use, rather than just putting it to sleep. This is especially important if you'll be travelling with your Meta Quest headset, or carrying it in a bag or a case.
To turn your headset off, hold the power until the indicator light on the front of the headset turns off and the power down chime is played.
This will ensure that the device isn't accidentally turned on by either jostling the power button, or from the device falsely detecting that it's been placed on someone's head for use.

Unplug when fully charged
Leaving your headset on the charger after it has been fully charged can reduce the overall battery life over time. When your headset has finished charging, the indicator light on the side of the headset will go from red to green. When this happens, unplug your headset. If you aren't planning to use your headset after charging it, power it off after unplugging it.
Use the provided charger
When charging your Meta Quest headset, use the charger that was included in the box. While you may be able to charge your headset's battery with chargers from other devices, your headset and its included charger were designed and tested to work optimally together and to maximise the performance of your headset.
If you're having trouble getting your charger to fit correctly in a wall socket, you may need to adjust the position of the grounding pin.
