Hi, I have a problem. Recently, I have bought my oculus quest 2. Everything is awesome, but there is still a problem with my usb. I have an original oculus link cable, and recently I bought an adapter (cause I don't have any c ports). Everything is working flawlessly, but my oculus battery is draining. Now, I have 2 options. One is : Resend the oculus link cable, and that adapter I bought, lose some money on shipping, but still gain some, and buy a cable that has a usb 3.0 (3.1 ?) port at the end. The other option (That I can think of) is, buying a pci adapter and plugging it to the motherboard, for new c port (I think buying an entire new motherboard, just for the port would be a huge overkill) The thing is, I don't know what to do. The second option, seems better (cause I don't really want to resend stuff) but It will cost much more money, and I don't have any skills regarding building a pc, or changing pc parts. So, my idea was to go to the IT store, and ask some specialists to do it for me. Now, how will I be able, to know which adapter exactly will work ? Like, what model, what motherboard is compatible, will it fit ? etc. I know, that specialists will help mi with that, but the only thing that worry's me is that battery power. How do I know, if adapter plugged to the motherboard, will be enough to always power my quest to 100 % ? Maybe I don't have to buy anything, and plug it (with the adapter) into some other usb 3.0 port that I have ? How do I know which will be more powerfull ? Or, unplug some stuff (like keyboard) to give it more power ? Which option would you guys choose ? Thanks
(sry for bad english).
