Now the Chinese electronics manufacturer Anker has released a new dock, which is designed to add comfort and to prevent users from fuss when charging the Oculus Quest headset and 2 controllers.
Launched a docking station for charging is available on Anker and Oculus for $ 87. Delivery Anker pre-orders will start January 22.
Docking station includes two alkaline battery 1800 mAh for use in both Touch controllers. After installing the batteries and change the covers of battery compartments just paste the Touch controllers in the left and right side of the dock to begin charging.
