Ok, I’m not really that into Black Friday in general, but it’s always worth checking the deals out. VR can be an expensive hobby, so it’s nice to be able to find accessories at a good price. Check out a few picks from Amazon. The part is you can find these deal ahead of the actual day!
Quest 2 Headset Quest 2
While the Quest 3 headset is the one to get now that it’s out, not everyone has the money to jump straight to the latest and greatest. Thankfully, Amazon has your back! Regularly $299, their Black Friday discount brings it down to a super-affordable $249! But that’s not all folks, if you grab their “Holiday Bundle,” it’s $249 WITH a $50 Amazon gift card included! That’s for the 128GB version. If you want more space so you can have more VR experiences installed at once, go for the 256GB version instead. It’s $299, but also includes the $50 gift card. That’s quite the deal!
The front of your headset can get scuffed up pretty quickly if you aren’t super careful with it. Getting a silicone shell for the front, just like for a phone, can be a smart idea. This model is usually $20 but is on sale for $13.94, then there’s an 8% coupon to apply, then there’s a 12% promo code (WWYHAAIB) bringing it down to $11.15 total. They’re almost giving them away!
Anker Charging Dock Quest 2
If you haven’t upgraded yet (or still use your Quest 2), you can solve two issues with this one great device. This beauty gives you a docking station to hold your headset and two controllers, but equally awesome is it charges all three of them when they’re in place! No extra cords, no changing batteries. This treasure is usually $99, but is on sale for $69, plus right now there’s a $30 coupon you can apply. It’s an unbeatable deal at just $39.99 after discounts.
Headset Power Bank Quest 2
The battery life on the Quest 2 is fine, but it’s never as long as you’d like it to be. Add another 5000mAh of power at a great price! It slides into place nicely to fit your headset, but in a pinch, it can be removed to power anything with its USB-C connector. Normally $22.99, it’s on sale for $16.99 right now with an extra 20% coupon for a grand total of just $13.59!
Not everyone has blazing fast Wi-Fi at home, but still want the flexibility of being able to play SteamVR or Oculus Rift games on their Quest 2 or 3. For those folks, you just need a good USB cable and you can play with almost no latency. It can be challenging to know which cords are rated for high-speed data and charging, while still being long enough let you move around. This Link Cable is 20 feet long to get you around the room comfortably. It’s usually $31.99, but currently on sale for $24.99, plus right now there’s a 5% coupon you can apply to bring it down to just $23.74!
It’s about time you got into 3D photos! A VR headset is a perfect place to watch your photos and videos with depth. The Kandao EGO is a pocketable twin-lens camera with a built-in touchscreen viewfinder. It takes micro SD cards and a removable battery. You can charge or transfer photos with a USB-C cable. The coolest part with this item is that the red binoculars you see in the image are actually detachable. Since the built-in screen is 2D, you can snap this on for a 3D preview or playback while you’re still out and about. It’s quite innovative! Normally available for $339, there’s currently a $50 coupon to bring it down to a shocking $289! Definitely a great choice for getting started in the world of stereo images.
