Real power for virtual reality: USB charging cables from Oehlbach

It won’t be long until VR headsets will be common accessories for our computers, just like keyboards, displays and mice are today. But as much as these devices will immerse you in virtual worlds, you will have to put them down again at some point – for example when their batteries run out. Past experiences prove that even high-end IT and CE manufacturers save on the cables included in the delivery. If you want to be prepared, you should look for a replacement in the portfolio of Oehlbach. The German manufacturer from Pulheim near Cologne offers a wide range of high-end USB cables, providing the perfect solution for charging VR headsets.
