What causes the Quest 3 slow charging?

The most common cause for charging issues on any sort of device is that we simply forgot to plug it in properly. However, charging problems could lead to more serious issues so let’s take a closer look at some of the causes behind a slow-charging Quest 3.

Faulty charging accessories

Sometimes, our gadgets and their accessories simply stop working. There are many potential causes for this as well, but remember to get an official product for your replacement to ensure its compatibility with your headset.

Playing while charging

Of course, using your Quest 3 to play games will drain the headset of its battery faster. Start playing games while you have it plugged into the charger and it could slow down the charging process.

Enabling auto-wake

The auto-wake function will take your Quest 3 off of sleep mode when it detects movement or if it finds something in the headset. Like any other electronic device, simply being left on will slowly drain its battery, putting a bit of a damper on its charging speed.

And that’s all we have on fixing the Quest 3 slow charging issue. For more on the VR headset, check out how to connect it to Bluetooth headphones and how to cast it to a TV.
