Reasons to buy

None

The Elite Strap with Battery Pack is our top recommendation for best Meta Quest 2 accessory because it's designed brilliantly. While pricey at $99, it attaches to the Quest 2 with ease and allows users to adjust the fixture and position of the headset with the turn of a dial.  

Remember, we're recommending the Elite Strap with Battery Pack, not the separate Elite Strap, which can be found for $49. For those looking to save a little, the Elite Strap alone could be worth it. But we found the Battery Pack version to be more practical.

Reasons to buy

Looks like an egg

Considering the Quest 2 can be played without a computer, having a carrying case is a must-have accessory for on-the-go VR. We recommend the official Meta Quest 2 carrying case for its excellent design and premium feel, but there are more options we tested on the best Oculus Quest 2 cases.

Seriously, Meta hit it out of the park with this case. It's designed in a way to fit the Quest 2 and its controllers in as tight a package as possible. That does mean there's very little room for additional accessories. Also, the Meta Quest 2 carrying case might not fit all third-party straps. But the premium felt exterior plus the single zipper suggests designers put in a lot of time to making this carrying case look and feel exceptional.

3. Facial Interface & Foam Replacement Set for Quest 2

Best face cover for the Oculus Quest 2

Reasons to buy

+
Comfortable
+
Easy to install
+
Less irritation

Reasons to avoid

-
Pricey

The standard foam pads on the face cover of the Meta Quest 2 are a little awkward as the material isn't the most breathable and it can suck up face sweat from extended  virtual reality sessions. That's not exactly appealing if you really want to immerse yourself in a VR world. 

So we can recommend the Facial Interface and Foam Replacement Set from VRCover for the Quest 2. As a premium take on the classic Quest 2 face pads, the replacement has its own clip that connects to the inside of the Quest 2. So if you have multiple people using the VR headset, you can quickly swap the face pads on and off.

AMVR Touch Controller Grip Cover for Meta Quest 2

4. AMVR Touch Controller Grip Cover

Best knuckle straps for the Meta Quest 2

Reasons to buy

+
Provides solid grip
+
Easily adjustable

Reasons to avoid

-
Adds extra bulk
-
Fitting inside carrying case slightly more difficult

The AMVR Touch Controller Grip Covers are the best knuckle straps for the Meta Quest 2. These straps are easy to set up and use and can be adjusted on the fly. For games that require a lot of punching or other sudden movements, the AMVR grip covers will ensure the Quest 2 controllers stay adhered to your hands. 

The AMVR's main selling point turns out to be its one weakness. Because these knuckle grips stay adhered to the hands, you'll need to take the controller off your hand completely to free up your fingers. For example, it's hard to adjust the Quest 2 head strap without pulling the controllers off your hands first. It's a small annoyance, but the added security is worth it.

5. Anker Charging Dock for Meta Quest 2

Best way to charge your Meta Quest 2

Reasons to buy

+
Slick design
+
Great for daily VR users

Reasons to avoid

Expensive

The Anker Charge Dock is less of an essential Meta Quest 2 accessory and more of a nice top have. That's because it's a neat way to charge your headset and Quest 2 controllers, or simply keep it topped up with electrical juice when you're not using it. 

Charging is provided via a magnetic USB-C insert that connects directly to the Quest 2, without the need for additional wires. And that magnet keeps the headset in place, making it a neat accessory to integrate into part of your entertainment setup. The dock also comes with its own controller battery covers to enable wireless charging for them as well as the headset. 

At $98, the Anker Charge Dock is arguably rather expensive, but it could make for a neat addition to your overall VR experience, if you want to splash the cash.
