Vive Wireless Battery compatibility

At this moment i still have a few battery banks that i use to run my vive trackers and controllers of for "wireless" re-charging. These come with2.4A  charging ability, similarly i still have a Anker Powercore+ of 26800 that i use for my tablet that comes with QuickCharge 3.0

Are there any requirements for battery banks to support the vive wireless adapter, when it comes to charging protocols and charging Amp ratings?

Has to be QC 3.0. I got a bat on amazon thats 30,000MAh. Works good and lasts maybe 4-5 hrs. Stock battery only lasts me 1.75 hrs. Battery from my brothers system lasts the same, so probably not defective. We play online for hours. Stock bat always dies at the worst posible time!

As the other guy said, it must be Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 compatible. I am currently using an Anker PowerCore Speed 20,000 with QC 3.0 and getting 6~ hours of battery life from it (Playing VRChat)

My USB current meter shows the Wireless Adapter drawing 0.8-0.9 amps at 12-12.2 volts. Using Night Mode in SteamVR appears to not affect power draw at all.

Hey everyone,

 

Remember, when it comes to battery packs, our warranty only covers the HTC official battery. If for some reason your 3rd party battery damages your wireless adapter or HMD, it won't be covered for repair or replacement. 

 

If you are in need of a second battery, you can purchase one here in our store

 

Thanks.

Except that you guys WAY over charge.  Batteries with the same specs only cost $40.

"If you are in need of a second battery, you can purchase one here in our store. "  But you are charging $79 for that battery pack!  Why are you charging $30 - $40 more than it costs consumsers?  I would rather risk it and buy two batteries from Anker rather than buying only one less performing power pack from HTC.  This is the kind of thing that turns people away from a company and can HTC afford to turn people away from your products like Apple is doing?
