  1. @stvnxu , ya tracking now seems to be the same as 1.0.7.1. Pretty good improvement over original but still need more work of course. Looking forward t Pistol Whip! Thanks.
  2. Update as already mentioned in beta 1.0.8.1 thread but just to keep this together with this wireless thread; Actually, low light with wireless now seems a lot better with 1.0.8.1. I did get one low light warning but this disappeared pretty fast and did not seem to effect the quality of my visuals = still very good. Maybe the power saving disable option that appeared with this update (and I enabled) helped. Aside #1; Just for fun I tried using the 18W battery that came with the old wireless kit. Fully charged (4x green lights, not blue like the 21W) I got ~30-45 minutes of runtime before it stopped working properly = blank headset screen. So, not completely useless and at least I can still use this to charge things like my iPhone,. Once I get my new (kinda expensive because I needed to buy another Cosmos adapter kit) 21W battery I should be fine with hot swaps. Aside # 2; I found wrapping the headset/wireless cable one turn around the headband behind the left earphone helped get rid of the rear slack. I used the little Velcro strap that came with the very long wireless battery lead to help keep this in place and I have not noticed any problems or noticed any discomfort. Aside# 3; I found using the Link Box USB cable (L1, which you do not need once you go wireless btw)) to connect to the wireless battery works very well. It is a lot shorter but still reaches my front shirt pocket or right pant belt no problem. It also seems to be a better quality lead so maybe it is a bit more efficient, but I don't really know for sure. A lot better than the long thin wireless battery lead imho. I also like not having to use the Cosmos link Box and power adapter. Makes for a nicer, cleaner installation and frees up one DP port on your GPU.
  3. @Dickytwo , hopefully like me you will see some improvements. More to come for sure imho.

  5. @Busman222 , maybe try a better QC3.0 charger. This seems to have helped me get ~ 2 hrs now and fully charges in ~3 hours.
  6. Ya, but for only ~$10 these chargers are cheap and probably better to buy locally for local specs anyway imho.
  7. Yes but it probably will not work as well as a proper QC3.0 charger imho. Maybe do a bit of Googling to see the diff.
  8. Sorry but I'm not sure that this is a QC3.0 approved charger.
  9. Ok, with my new QC3.0 wall charger I charger my Cosmos 21W battery that was one light showing when I last looked at it so it could have been anything between 11-25% charged, probably something in the middle. It took just under 3 hours to fully recharge. So, quite a but faster then my good old 5v/2a smartphone wall charger. I'll haver to see whether or not I get better runtimes with this charger. Stay tuned, lol!
  10. I actually went back to beta 1.0.8.1 because I thought my wireless worked a little better. It gave me the option to remove power savings from the wireless and this seems to have helped improve my wireless performance, esp. with X Plane 11. I'm not sure about low light problems. I guess I'll find out tonight, lol!
  11. @NRip , ya of course you will use a lot less battery during setups vs actual full bore sim racing so it will be interesting to see how much battery life you get then. Please let us know, thanks mate. I'm sure your current Pc is capable of decent VR racing sims but you may want to consider upgrading to a i7-9700k and RTX 2080s sometime in the future, esp. with the wireless adapter because I've found it does tend to use a far amount of CPU resources. I finally broke down today and ordered another Cosmos QC3.0 21W battery. I had to order another Cosmos adapter kit to get it so $A 119 all up shipped. Probably the worlds most expensive headset battery, lol! Oh well, it's only money eh. I also bought a proper QC3.0 18W wall charger. So now I will at least be able to fast swap these.
  12. @Cappy1 in most games you can call up lense, go to settings, and adjust your height. Not a very elegant way to do it but I find this often helps get you on the right level at least. Fortunately many games at least have a re-centre function and while it can get you pointed in the right direction, it does not always get your height right. BTW, once I got my direction in about the right orientation I've never needed to go through the Cosmos setup ever again.
  13. Update; I rolled back to 1.0.7.1 and while I still got the odd low light message it was short and did not seem to effect the image quality so I think I'll stick to that for now. One thing I notice it that every time I change headset software I get prompted to update VivePort software and this just goes back to the same version as before. Also, after an update if I go into Origin it hangs. If I exit it and try again it is fine. Not that I use Origin much, I just thought I would mention this.
  14. @88sooner I also noticed this beta was a little more sensitive to lower lighting than 1.0.7.1. I'm going to roll back to it. It's a final version so not problem rolling back.
  15. Sorry but I find this pretty hard to believe mate. Even Vive pro users do not get this kind of battery life and the older lighthouse stations headsets take a lot less wireless power to operate. Maybe you got a Super-Battery, lol!
