TrackIR 5 device care

Post by honeycool75 » Mon Apr 27, 2020 4:59 pm


Is it safe to leave the tractor device cable left plugged in the USB port although it's non in used, i.e. software is not on? I normally use the same PC for gaming and other stuff. Will leaving the device there reduce its overall lifespan?

Hi honeycool75,

We see no issue leaving the device plugged in all the time. I notice my TrackIR 5 camera will turn itself off after a period when plugged in and not in use.
