Turtle Beach, the gaming headphone and accessories maker, is bringing out its own Quest 2 charging dock that should keep your headset and controllers always ready for action.

The device, called the Turtle Beach Fuel Compact VR Charging Station, provides power and storage for Meta Quest 2 and Touch controllers by replacing a few bits and bobs on your stock device.

Rechargeable batteries pair with replacement magnetic battery doors on both Touch controllers, letting you dock and charge both controllers without having to manually replace batteries ever again—or at least for a really long time. Turtle Beach says its batteries provide 20 hours of continuous play.

As for the headset, the Fuel Compact VR Charging Station uses a detachable USB-C to magnetic pin dongle, providing a full charge in around 2.5 hours.

If you don’t find yourself plugging in for a wired PC VR gaming session via Link, you could technically leave the magnetic USB-C nib in your headset’s charging port indefinitely.

Still, it seems the detachable bit has enough of surface to make it easy to grab and remove if you need to plug in another cable for some reason or another since the magnetic USB-C dongle is only capable of charging the headset.

The Fuel Compact VR Charging Station for Meta Quest 2 is available for pre-order direct from Turtle Beach and retailers such as Amazon. It’s priced at $80 and launches November 21st, 2022.

Turtle Beach is a leader in headphones and other gaming accessories, such as flight sim equipment, controllers, and microphones—making the Quest 2 charging dock its first foray into VR accessories. The company is actually known for pretty great build quality across its various products, so we’re hoping the Quest 2 charging dock can provide the sort of robust and seamless user experience as the rest of its non-VR lineup.

    lol @ price

  • Not a bad price for a magnetically detaching dock, surprised no one else has thought of that.

      It’s a piece of plastic with very few electronic components?

      • Max-Dmg

        But it has a cool sticker.

      I’m assuming that’s sarcasm. Anker released the same product (same magnet usbc) at launch of quest 2 and insignia also has the same product available for a little cheaper.

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to see any more players in the VR space, but this is definitely a “me too” product launch, not an innovation.

      That is funny…. I have owned one for the better part of a year. Docks like this are all over Amazon for about $45. Mine also came with rechargeable batteries for the hand controllers and the best part is it all works with my after market strap.

    No, turtle beach had a set of earphones with volume and bass boost for VR called stealth 350VR

  • Good to see new companies entering the VR field

  • Max-Dmg

    I had turtle beach headphones. hey had a horrible software issue where the volume would gradually drop to 0 which they refused to fix. Binned them and will never go near their products again. I feel sorry for my bin having to put up with them.

    Another useless charging dock which works only with the original strap
