Some questions for OG Vive and Vive Pro owners.


Recommended Posts

Hello. Several questions for people who owned both headsets:

- Do vive wands 2.0 consume more battery charge compared to 1.0?

- Any jittering, sudden loss of tracking on newer wands and Pro headset?

- Are base stations 2.0 more likely to fail than 1.0s?

- In general, which hardware version had more problems in your experience?

@Sanchez -

  • The 2.0 sensors are more sensitive to reflections than first gen sensors. Perhaps also a little more occlusion sensitive.
    • The first gen sensors are like 6 years old now - the algrothyms are more mature.
      • It's the 2.0 sensors themselves. All SteamVR headsets that have the newer sensors have similar behavior - it's not just VP series.
  • The best way to keep the stations from failing is to not touch them when they're moving and to use basestation power management or a cellphone app like "BS Companion" to shut them off when not in use.

It's more of a sensor thing than a basestation thing, but there are pros and cons to both.
