When you’re not playing with Oculus Quest 2, chances are it’s plopped on a desk and connected to a charging cable. Now, China-based electronics manufacturer Anker just launched a new charging dock that aims to take the fuss out of topping up the batteries on your Oculus Quest 2 headset and Touch controllers.
The charging dock launched today available from Amazon, Anker, Oculus, and for $87. At the time of this writing, it appears the first shipment of docks has already gone out of stock. Pre-orders on Anker and Oculus can be found with January 22nd shipping.

The dock includes two 1800mAH alkaline rechargeable batteries for use in both Touch controllers. After inserting the rechargeable batteries and swapping out the battery covers, simply pop the Touch controllers into the left and right sides of the dock to start charging.
Not only providing a place for Quest 2 to rest when not in use, the dock also integrates magnetic USB-C connector snaps, so the headset itself can charge as soon as it’s nestled in. A full charge is said to take 2.5 hours for both controllers and headset.
USB-C Input: 5.0V/9.0V DC
Magnetic USB-C Output: 5.0V/3.0A, 9.0V/2.0A
Controller Charging Ports: 1.8V/0.9A × 2
Rechargeable Batteries for Touch controllers: 1.2V/1800mAh × 2
Tailor Made for Quest 2
Designed so that your Quest 2 fits snugly on the dock while charging and can be easily picked up when you’re ready to play again.
