Oculus Quest was finally released. I believe you enjoy room-scale VR experiences with an untethered standalone headset. After weeks of usage, you may think of the need for some additional items for the headset. Here are the best Oculus Quest accessories on Amazon.com.
Energizer Rechargeable AA and AAA Battery Charger
Touch Controllers come with the Oculus Quest VR headset. And each controller is powered by an AA battery. If you are using regular disposable batteries, you are going to need lots of them.
Energizer Rechargeable battery charger comes with 4 AA rechargeable batteries. You can charge two or four batteries at the same time. It takes 3 to 5 hour to recharge. So, you can always keep two full-charged battery as spares. The charger has an LED indicator to show the charging progress and an audio alert to tell you when a charge is complete.
Travel Case for Oculus Quest
Oculus Quest has successfully introduced the room-scale VR technology without any external hardware. You may want to take it to somewhere else like your friend’s house or go on a vacation with it. Even if you use mostly at home, it’s good to have a case to store the headset. After weeks of its release, there have been many travel cases for Oculus Quest on the market. Here are some different types of cases.
Oculus Quest offical travel case is available for $40. It’s probably the snuggest fit of all. Overall size is small and compact, but the downside is that it doesn’t have much room for extra items like AA batteries and a portable battery pack.
Esimen Fashion Travel Case has a little more extra room than Oculus official travel case. The back of the lid has zipped pockets. You can put cables, cleaning cloth, etc. Outside, it has a carry handle and detachable shoulder strap.
Casematix Carry Case is a hardshell case with fully customizable foam inside. The foam is pre-cut, so you can easily make compartments for the headset, controllers, and something else you need to carry. 13″ x 16″ x 4″ case has plenty of room. You can even store large headphones with the headset and controllers.
Google Chromecast (3rd Gen or Ultra)
VR gamings tend to be isolating, but Facebook has prepared for the problem. You can share VR experiences with your friends by using Chromecast. Casting your gameplay to the TV lets everyone see what you are playing and enjoy the moment together. At the time of writing, supported models of Chomecast are 3rd gen and Ultra. (Updated 10/18/2019, you can cast to all generations of Chomecast. Click here to see details)
If you have a problem of fogging up on the headset lenses or your glasses, try this spray. Jaws Quick Spit Antifog Spray works on any glass or plastic. You can also use it on other things like dive masks, swim goggles, safety goggles, ski goggles, windows, binoculars, telescopes, etc.
Microfiber Cleaning Cloth
You need to use a delicate cloth to clean the lenses of Oculus Quest, so you keep them from making small scratches on them. The AmazonBasics Microfiber Cleaning Cloth 6-pack is safe to use on any surface like TVs, computer monitors, laptops, tablets, smartphones, camera lenses, etc. It’s good to be used with an anti-fog spray above.
Disposable VR Mask
The face pad of Oculus Quest is made of foam and cloth. It absorbs your sweat. It is washable, but you can’t do that when you pass the headset around with your friends. It’s not comfortable to wear without some sort of protection. The VR mask prevents direct contact your face with the face pad. The item is 100-piece non-woven fabric and disposable face masks.
