How to Change Batteries in an Oculus Controller

If you are one of the many people that have bought an Oculus Quest 2 or Meta Quest, you may want to know how to change batteries in an Oculus controller. The battery in this device is relatively easy to replace, and it will be a big help if you do it regularly.

The Oculus controller can be used with either disposable or rechargeable batteries. Having the right type of battery is important, especially if you use the device frequently.

Before starting the process, you need to first open up the battery compartment. You can do this by removing the battery cover on the controller. This can be a difficult task, but there are tools available that make it easier to do.

After removing the battery cover, you can then slide the battery compartment to the side. A small eject symbol will pop up. Simply push down on the symbol with your thumb.

Once the battery compartment is open, you can replace the battery with a new one. Using a new, rechargeable AA battery is recommended. These are affordable and last a long time.

Changing the battery on an Oculus controller is simple and doesn’t compromise gameplay. There are a few things to keep in mind, however.

First, don’t try to remove the battery from the controller by holding it in your hand. That can cause it to break. Alternatively, you can put a butter knife in there and use that.
