While the Oculus Touch can last quite a while on a single AA battery for most people, it can still be frustrating when in the middle of a VR experience you suddenly can’t see your hands because the batteries need to be replaced. Well, Best Buy’s consumer electronics brand, Insignia, aims to alleviate that with the release of a charging station.
Insignia’s new charging station for Oculus Touch motion controllers includes two rechargeable batteries (1200 mAh), a charging station, an AC power adapter, and two modified battery compartment covers which each have special contact points, allowing for an easy drop-in and charge power solution.
The charging station has a compact, sleek profile design that conveniently holds and displays the Touch controllers while not in use. When docked, both controllers with their rechargeable batteries can be fully charged within three hours and provide up to 10 hours of continuous VR playtime between charges. In addition, the charging station will automatically shut off when the controllers are fully charged, allowing to save energy and prevent any overcharging.
If you’re looking for a simple way to display and charge your Touch controllers simultaneously, then the Insignia charging station may be for you. The charging station is available to purchase now online or in stores at Best Buy for an affordable price of $29.99.
