Controllers loose tracking

I know whats going on but i don't know how to deal with it. When im playing beat saber i run into a issue where if i swing my controller to fast it will cause the controller to loose tracking and it can only rotate. I guess this is do to the battery some moving a little inside the controller and disconnecting for a second. I've tried to put paper in but it still occurs and putting paper in to make it more still helps sometimes but the only way to get some effect out of jamming paper in is if it sit there for a few minutes finding a good spot. The thing with this though is batterys loose energy so ill have to do this everytime i need to change them. I'm not sure if there is any better way to keep them still but i need a way i can do in just a few seconds. i'm starting to get tired of loosing tracking and having to adjust paper in the battery slot to make it more still. So what can i do about this?

    I've heard of people jamming another spring in there. I'd ask in the beat saber discord. https://discordapp.com/invite/rpGSDFZ

    I guess Oculas needs a robotic arm to swing at about 7G's  to test the battery spring.  I'm guessing the Rift S touch controllers will be made with a more durable spring.

    Sounds defective to me.  My touch controllers never lose battery connection because I'm moving them fast.  Does it only happen on one of them or both?

    Or how about just manufacturing a quality controller with a permanent rechargeable batter pack that has non-moving parts?  That would solve the issue right quick, wouldn't it?falken76 said:

    Please, this is an extremely common issue and not the only widely known defect of the Rift hardware--but it is one of the most infamous ones.  To try and play ignorant is insulting and degrading to the plethora of users reporting this issue.
