How to keep your HoloLens powered for all day use

Constant use of the HoloLens will drain the battery in 2.5-3 hours depending on application requirements. Working with your headset connected to mains power also means being tethered to a wall which can prohibit some fabrication tasks. Here are a few things to consider when planning for tasks that require all-day use of the HoloLens.

  1. Use a pocket phone charger and keep your HoloLens plugged in at all times. This will draw power from the battery and will double the use time of your headset.
  2. Remember to put your HoloLens to sleep whenever it is not in use.
  3. Remember to charge your HoloLens (and your battery pack if using one) during any down time.
  4. Use the charger that comes with your Headset. This has higher amps than a typical phone charger and reduces charging time.
  5. Plan for down time during charging. Charging your headset can take ~2 hours.
