If you're reading this, you probably want to know if this is worth spending the extra money on vs the $50 strap.
The short answer is yes, and if you were planning to get the case anyways, the extra $30 is really a no brainer.
Personally, for me, when I ordered everything, there were no reviews, so I bought both optional straps so I could compare.
I'm here to tell you the elite strap (with battery) is better, maybe even a lot better.
And I'm not even talking about battery life, I'm talking about comfort.
The $50 deluxe strap is definitely a step up from last years quest 1 strap, but it still suffers from the weight imbalance of having a weight in the front.
The Elite strap with battery solves that problem in ways I never imagined were important!
#1 of course is base comfort - but there are lots of things I didn't think about before buying so let me share those with you:
- because of the balance, you need a little less front to back tightness/pressure to keep the quest in place - that adds considerably to the comfort
- because of the balance, putting the quest on is far easier - as the quest 'floats in position' while you tighten the strap up and make fine adjustments on your face (with the $50 strap, the quest wants to slide down as you put it on)
- because of the balance, the quest moves a little less on your face during use - I was able to play for a decent amount of time without constantly needing to re-adjust the quest.
- because of the balance all your neck muscles work about the same - this should be less fatiguing than a front heavy quest.
When I originally thought about the elite strap, the above benefits didn't occur to me - I'm sharing them here in hopes that it'll help in your own decision process.
Oh and one more cool thing - the quest knows the battery level of both the internal battery, and the external one - and reports both, which I thought was pretty neat.
Also if it's not obvious, you charge both the quest, and the battery at the same time - the cable that comes with the quest plugs into the battery pack - the battery pack plugs into the quest - the light on the quest turns green once both are fully charged.
Hope this review helps you, please consider marking it helpful if it did!
