Meta pulls head-mounted VR booster battery after faulty firmware bricks it

Nov 30, 2023

Thu 30 Nov 2023 // 00:19 UTC Meta has paused shipments of the wearable battery-slash-head strap accessory for its Quest 3 VR goggles amid reports the device bricks itself when charged. The $130 Elite Strap with Battery is advertised as making the Facebook giant's virtual-reality headgear more comfortable and extending your adventures in the metaverse by an extra two hours thanks to its built-in batteries. However, Meta confirmed to techno-goggles blog Road to VR the accessory sometimes dies after being charged and its firmware is at fault. The social network is apparently reworking the device to address the issue and will replacing units on a case-by-case basis. Word of issues charging the strap bubbled up online over the past month, with users reporting problems appear more prevalent when using third-party USB-C cables and chargers. Some folks reported success using Meta’s supplied cable and charger, while others said this was only a temporary fix and eventually the Elite Strap stopped charging entirely. Users receiving replacement devices under warranty reported similar symptoms. Meta has stopped short of issuing a recall, presumably because of the many failure modes a lithium-ion battery can exhibit — particularly one you strap to your head — refusing to charge likely doesn’t pose a risk health and safety compared to the potential for the battery to catch fire and cook your cranium. The battery pack appears to have all but disappeared from online stores. Amazon says it is unavailable while Best Buy’s listing for the device has vanished. The Elite Strap still appears on Meta’s website but is unavailable for purchase at this time. Reviews on online souks are rife with charging-related comments, few positive.
