Meta has reportedly paused the sales of Quest 3 Elite Battery Straps

One of the most popular accessories for the Meta Quest 3, the Elite Strap with battery, has hit a snag, and Meta has decided to pause all sales of the accessory until further notice. The Elite Strap, which costs $130, has been known to increase the run time of the Meta Quest 3 by upto 2 hours, making it a must have for VR enthusiasts. The product has been pulled from all online portals while the company has also issued a recall from all physical sellers.

Meta has informed the media that they are currently in the process of seeding a firmware update and shipping the same in a brand new batch of Elite Straps. They plan to resolve defects on a case by case basis, so if you are a customer who has been affected by this problem, you can contact the customer support and the straps will be replaced.
