Will these batteries work with the Wireless Adapter? [R]

9 months, 3 weeks agoApneal posted submission on Vive.

The batteries in question:

With this one as a backup:

I am opening a VR Arcade and I have three of the stations hooked up with the HTC Wireless Adapter to my Vive Pros. We've been testing their time on and it's not nearly what I would want for a busy weekend when we're not going to have a chance between sessions to charge them. So I'm looking for something that will get me around five hours on a full charge. I know the HTC Wireless Adapter requires Quick Charge 3.0 but it's tough to tell from the wording on these product descriptions if this battery will work. Can anyone shed some light on this? I'll be buying multiples of these, so I don't want to waste money on a product that wont actually work or worse could potentially damage the adapter.

If it's QC3, it'll say so. I use this one and it works fine, even fits in the stock belt clip:

Vive Wireless... is it possible to plug it in directly to an outlet? [R]

9 months, 3 weeks agoApneal posted submission on Vive.
Oct. 27, 2018

I know, seems to defeat the purpose of wireless, however I'd love to know if it's possible to plug in the headset directly to an outlet instead of needing to go though a battery.

Reason being that I play VRchat for ridiculously long periods of time, mostly dancing and hanging with friends, and for that I have two batteries I have charged that last around 2.5 hours each that I just swap out when the other dies. However at the end of the night I usually spend just laying down and talking, so I don't need to use the wireless so much, but also don't want to go through the hassle of swapping to a battery that won't be fully recharged by the the time the second one dies.

Anyone know if it's safe to just plug in the USB wire to a USB outlet? Will it damage anything?

Adding to the comments.

This battery (and some like it) not only last >5 hours, but also fit snugly into the stock belt clip! Also, you can use one battery to charge another, so you could chain that into the stock battery for 7.5hrs (I've done this before by keeping one battery in each pocket).

The chaining thing also works for using a non-QC3 charger to charge the stock battery! It'd be interesting to see if you could get the full life out of the stock battery this way... most non-QC3 power blocks output about 2.4A for about 15watts, the stock charger puts about 24 watts into the headset I believe, so a 20000mA battery like that could potentially keep the stock battery lasting over 6 hours as well.

Recomendation for fast chargers and extra battery for Vive Wireless? [R]

Got my Wireless today. Have not tried it yet because it takes a god awful long time to charge the battery.

I've read that it'll charge faster if I use quick charger 3.0. Any recommendations for chargers I can get?

Also I think I'll need an extra battery. Can I safely use other battery types than the one from HTC? Which ones are safe to use?

The Anker 20000 QC 3.0 can run the wireless for about 5 hours and fits in the waistband holder (its taller but similar in width and thickness).

Just remember the middle port is the QC port, not the outside one.

EDIT: The recharge time of the stock battery is about 6-7 hours; The recharge time of the one I linked is about 10-11 hours. You can maximize play time by burning through the 2.5hr one first, recharging it while using the larger battery, the 2.5hr battery should be almost fully charged by the time you burn through the bigger battery.

A TPCast User’s General Impressions of the HTC Wireless Adapter [R]

11 months agorW0HgFyxoJhYka posted submission on Vive.
Sept. 25, 2018

TL;DR - The HTC Wireless Adapter performed at least as well, and so far I believe better, than the TPCast. You can use a larger battery (see below for a link). No image or audio loss so far. It’s a bit clunky to put on the Vive, but not the worst.

I’m just going to get to each point since I’m writing this at 2:00a. Sorry if it’s a little rambling and not in a logical sequence.

Here are my thoughts and findings:

  • You have to sign for the package if it comes from HTC. They also instructed FedEx to not allow a pre-signed form, so you either have to be home, or pick it up at the distribution center after a failed delivery attempt.
  • The HTC Wireless Adapter was easier to setup than the TPCast, however the Vive Pro installation instructions could have been a bit more clear. Photos of the other headsets were thrown into the Pro install instructions, confusing things. I would have preferred a video recording of the install, even if those videos are sometimes agonizingly slow and prescriptive.
  • The included battery had enough charge to make sure it works, but I didn’t get much more than 5 minutes of playing in before the headset went dark. That was disappointing.
  • Out of desperation I used a spare Anker 20000 charger which I recently charged for travel. I honestly got lucky. It worked like a charm. I made sure to use the green USB-A port, since that’s the one that has the supported wireless charging standard. I imagine I’ll use this instead of the half sized battery included with the adapter. It fit perfectly in the Wireless Adapter’s clip-on holder. Again - I got stupid lucky. Here’s a link to the battery I’m using. I believe it will last 5 hours.
  • The Anker battery that comes with the TPCast will not work. This is the Anker battery with model number 20100. This is different from the one I used above, which is the 20000.
  • So far I haven’t seen my biggest gripe about the TPCast, which is total loss of video and audio during loading screens, or areas with very little light. That was my biggest complaint about the TPCast.
  • The antenna cable is about 6 or so feet. It serves my purpose of reaching from one side of a wall through to the other, then up toward the ceiling in an adjacent room. I’m very happy about that.
  • The Pro doesn’t require the cabling from the wireless antenna to the HMD. This is a little confusing as although the Pro instructions don’t mention it in the installation steps, it’s a little weird to look down and see that cable on the floor. So, if you’re on a Pro, you don’t need the all-in-one HDMI/USB/power cable.
  • The Pro fits my head better now that it has some extra padding around my crown, required as part of the Wireless Adapter setup.
  • An issue I had on the TPCast, I also see with the Wireless Adapter, where you begin to lose tracking after a while, and the environment around you begins to shimmy, tremble, then shake, progressively becoming more violent. It’s enough to make you sick. I don’t have a clue as to why this happens, especially as I have a clear shot between the transceiver and antenna.
  • I did not notice any degradation in video or audio. I sometimes saw a small amount of artifacting with the TPCast, but it was solid otherwise, and I imagine I may see it on occasion with the Wireless Adapter, but not once tonight.
  • I much prefer the Vive software over the TPCast. It feels much more polished, and so far just kinda works.
  • I had full microphone and camera access. Not a single person complained about my mic audio.
  • My area is 10’ x 11’, and I had no problem moving around in that space to every corner. I’m using the version 1 lighthouses.
  • The process of starting a game is to connect the battery, push the button on the Vive wireless adapter on the HMD, open the Vive wireless software, then start SteamVR. Really it’s not clunky and works as it should.

So far I’m really happy with it. I’m sure there’s something I’m missing. I hope this is useful to any on the fence, or who are waiting for theirs to arrive.

As a note, I’m using a STRIX 1080ti.

Edit: Cleaned up some things for clarity.

How long does this anker battery last using the Vive Wireless? Should I just be using these as the battery rather than the battery that comes with the Wireless?

I've had an Anker 20,000 power bank and it works perfectly for the Switch. The only thing I suggest is getting a decent stand that lets you charge and play, the licensed Hori one works pretty good from my use, and I'll be taking it with my on my trip in a few weeks so we'll see how it stands up on a tray.

Anker is your best bet. Not only do they make high quality products, they also have super good customer service and will replace your items on a heartbeat if they dont work as intended.

That being said, i would recommend one that supports quick charge. There are multiple ones that would meet your requirements but i think this one is the best bang for your buck:

Its a little on the pricey side but its well worth it. Since you'd be out all day walking through the park, having a battery that could charge multiple phones multiple times would come in clutch. It could probably keep your whole family's phones alive the whole day. The best part is that it supports quick charging for your daughters phone and anyone else in the family with quick charge enabled phones; i believe iphone 8 and X also benefit from quick charge technologies. Its slim and could easily be carried in a backpack or bag. It also has a fast charge input port which means it can be fully charged overnight within 5 hours if you use a fast charge wall plug.

This also supports quick charge, is smaller and is a little bit cheaper:

This one would probably only be enough for keeping one phone alive the whole day but it is $15 cheaper and smaller. I would still recommend the other one, its much more useful.

Edit: forgot to mention that you can also take it with you aboard flights so it would be useful for any future family trips or vacations

Battery Pack & Charger Help (and I'm not an Electrical Engineer) [R]

1 year, 2 months agoImBrianJ posted submission on Ultralight.
June 8, 2018

HELP: we need to choose a battery pack and a charger. I don't know how to calculate the size of power needed, and I need help sorting through the electrical jargon.

TRIP REQUIREMENTS: We are hiking the SHR in July/August and will have 1 maximum 5.5 day carry between town stops (Parcher's Resort/Bishop Pass to Red's Meadow) (other carries are 4.5, 4.5, and 2 days). We have 2 iPhone 6S Plus phones and 1 Garmin Inreach Mini.

PHONES: My phone will will be used for Gaia GPS for backup navigation as needed, most of the photos and videos, and reading resource documents. On a recent 2.5 day trip I with this usage I used 60% of the phone's battery.Her phone will be a few photos. She used 25% battery on the same trip.

INREACH MINI: We want to use 30 minute tracking on the inReach, and turn it off at night. We won't be using it for texts much, just checking in with fam. We don't need it to check for messages constantly. I don't have any idea how much battery it will take to recharge it. I have heard that Inreaches in general don't take that much juice to recharge them.

(QUICK?) CHARGING NEEDS: We want to be able to charge up the battery pack itself pretty quickly to minimize "plug time" at resupplies. I don't think the "recharging our devices time" is as important, we can do that while we walk (or sleep). I don't know if we need a two or more port charger or not. If I understand correctly, however many amps(?) it charges may depend on the battery pack we choose.

I've looked at the Anker 6700 and 10000. I don't know if either of them is enough. I've read lots of jargon-filled posts about the topic, but I get lost quickly and do not have enough electrical theory knowledge to understand it. Any suggestions? As always, I want to go as light as possible with respect to both components. Thanks!

A device that charges quickly from the wall likely won't have any meaningful savings in cost or weight for a slower charge of device from the battery.

The consensus here is largely to stick with Anker. It's not the golden rule, but I think most everyone here is satisfied with them.

A 20k battery is probably the safest bet. You can find one that supports their "Quick Charge" inputs and will charge from empty to full in 6 hours.

There are others that charge as quickly, but instead of Quick Charge, they use dual inputs (which means carrying a redundant cord):

If you think you can make do with a 10k mAh battery, this is probably your best bet (charges in 4 hours):

To make use of the Quck Charge, you'll need a capable charger - unfortunately, they're not super lightweight.

As a wildcard option, I've been toying with lightweight solar (83g with two carabiners for mounting to my pack). I get a fairly reliable 1.5watt output in direct sunlight from this: Not very fast, but it's enough to keep things going as long as you're not stuck in a green tunnel.

Yup, I think a lot of people overlook a Quickcharge input. They have a charger the size of a fucking cinderblock but it takes about 20 hours to charge the charger. I got this one. Has Quickcharge input and 2 QC outputs. The only way it could be better is if it had 2 QC inputs as I've seen on some models.

I got a really nice carrying case that has a pouch large enough to fit a cell phone charger and my phone just so happened to use the same type of cable as the Switch (a USB type-c cable). Whenever I tried to plug my phone charger into my Switch it can charge it, but only when the system is turned off. It only actually charges while I'm playing it when I use the official Nintendo charger. Problem is, it's way too bulky to lug around in my case. Any suggestions for a good portable charger for the switch? Any brand in particular to look out for?
