As we near the release date of Meta Quest 3, virtual reality enthusiasts are wondering about the battery life of the highly anticipated headset. If you are one of them, we have some exciting news straight from the Meta CTO himself.

During an AMA Q&A session on 10 July 2023, Meta CTO Andrew Bosworth revealed how long the Oculus Quest 3 battery lasts. He also expressed that Meta is continuously working on improving the battery life of the device.

In this guide, we will explore the battery life of the Meta Quest 3, shedding light on how long this portable VR powerhouse can last on a single charge.

Meta Quest 3 battery life

The battery life of the Meta Quest 3 is "about the same as Quest 2," according to Meta CTO Andrew Bosworth.

Based on Andrew Bosworth's statement, we can anticipate that the battery life of the Meta Quest 3 will likely fall within the range of 2-3 hours, similar to the battery life of the Quest 2.

It's worth noting that the exact specifics of the battery life, such as the number of hours, or the battery capacity were not revealed in the Q&A session.

Full details about the VR headset such as resolution and a concrete release date will be revealed at the Meta Connect event on September 27.

Meta Quest 3 battery capacity

Meta Quest 3 boasts the next-generation Snapdragon chip which offers more than double the capabilities of the Snapdragon XR2 found in the Meta Quest 2.


Taking into account the improved power and efficiency of the next-generation chip in the Quest 3, there is a possibility that the battery capacity of the Quest 3 may need to be slightly higher compared to the Quest 2.

The Quest 2 features a 3,648 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery and its charge time is around 2.5 hours. Given the increased battery capacity in Quest 3, it may take a longer time to achieve a full charge.

We will update this guide as soon as the precise details about the battery life and capacity of the Meta Quest 3 are revealed. So, stay tuned!
