Have you mastered the art of charging your Apple AirPods? That’s a hard thing to do.

There are several reasons that your AirPods charging case may not charge, And it all depends on if it’s an actual problem with the case or if it even has a problem at all.

Keep reading to find out some tips to try when your AirPods case doesn’t charge.

Remove and Reinsert Your Air Pods

One of the most common issues encountered with Air Pods is that their case won’t charge. This can be solved fairly easily by trying to remove and reinsert your Air Pods in the case. To do this, open the case and hold down the pairing button until the light flickers.

Then, remove the Air Pods and place them back in the case. Doing this should allow the case to begin charging again. If the light does not turn on when you reinsert the Air Pods, you may need to find another way to recharge them, such as using a wireless charger or plugging the case into an outlet. 

Charge Both Your Air Pods and the Case

First, make sure to check the cord used to charge your AirPods and confirm it’s power plugging into a USB port on a laptop, power adapter, or another compatible device. If the cord isn’t able to make a connection, then replace it with a correct, functioning cord.

If you still cannot charge both your AirPods and their case, then check the condition of the lightning charging port. Clean the port with a dry cloth, and if the port is damaged, then get it replaced.

You may need to connect the AirPods to a power source and charge the AirPods and their case separately. To do this, make sure that the case’s lightning port is making a good connection with the cord and that the case is in the open position on a flat surface.

Clean Your Air Pods

When your Air Pods case has charging problems, ensure it is properly connected to a charging source. If it is, then it is time to clean your Air Pods case. Start by gently wiping off any dirt or debris from your Air Pods case with a soft cloth or cotton swab.

Next, use a toothpick or brush to remove any dirt that has built up in the lightning charging port. Be sure to avoid applying too much pressure, or else you could damage the port. Finally, use a can of compressed air to blow away any dust or dirt that might have gotten stuck in the speaker openings or other tiny parts.

If you don’t have access to compressed air, you can also try using tweezers to carefully remove any dirt or debris. With these simple steps, you can get your Air Pods case to charge again.

Reset Your Air Pods

If your Air Pods case doesn’t charge, don’t panic! There are a few simple steps you can take to try and reset your Air Pods. The most important step is to ensure that the case is correctly connected to a power source and that the lightning port is in good condition.

In some cases, a piece of lint or debris blocking the port can inhibit charging. Secondly, you can try resetting the Air Pods manually by pressing and holding the setup button on the back of the Air Pods case. Finally, in rare cases, a hard reset of the Air Pods case may be required.

To do this, press and hold the setup and volume down buttons simultaneously for at least 20 seconds. After processing the reset, the light on the case will flash, indicating that the reset was successful. With all of these steps, you should be able to reset your Air Pods and get them back up and running.

Update Your Air Pods’ Firmware

If your Air Pods case won’t charge, it is likely due to a hardware or software problem. To make sure your Air Pods are working properly, it’s important to update the Air Pods’ firmware. Depending on the type of Air Pods you have, there are two ways to update.

First, you can connect your Air Pods to your iOS or iPad OS device, and an update should appear if one is available. Alternatively, you can connect your Air Pods case to a power source, open the lid and connect it to your iOS or iPad OS device, and the update should appear.

The Air Pods firmware can also be updated via the Apple Audio Accessory Update Window. Once the update is complete, the charging issue should be resolved, and your Air Pods will be working properly again.

Take Care of the Lithium-Ion Battery

If you experience charging issues, the first thing you should do is take care of the lithium-ion battery. The Air Pods case is powered by a lithium-ion battery, and it’s important that you don’t allow your Air Pods to run out of power completely or discharge the battery all the way to 0%.

Doing so could cause permanent damage to the battery, reducing its lifespan and overall performance. To prevent this from happening, make sure to plug in your Air Pods and give them an occasional full charge (until the indicator light turns green) so that it remains healthy and functioning.

Additionally, avoid keeping it in extreme temperatures and try to use original Apple charging devices to ensure maximum protection. If all these tips fail, it’s time for apple airpod replacements.
