Apple doesn’t deny that AirPods wear out the lithium-ion batteries inside. You have to need to be replaced or serviced eventually. Because rechargeable batteries have a short lifespan.
You have to purchase a new pair of Airpods every two or three years because Airpods batteries are not meant to last forever.
Indeed, over time, the batteries in the AirPods and AirPods Pro gradually wear down to the extent that they will last for minutes rather than hours.
Changing batteries is very common on smartphones and laptops. But the battery of the Airpods is easy to replace.
How much does it cost to replace an AirPod battery?
- Apple store has a condition that they will be replaced at no cost when the Airpods are less than a year old and the battery does not work up to the promised.
- Apple recently started offering its $29 Apple-care warranty, which also includes the battery. But it only takes two years for this extended warranty, which would not have been long enough to save AirPods.
- If your AirPods are out of warranty then Apple will change this for $49 per stick that means for pair of Airpods is $98. You can also replace the charging case as well at the price of $49.
So, do a favor for yourself to buy a new pair of earbuds instead of paying Apple’s exorbitant battery replacement fees. Because a brand new pair of AirPods come at the price of $159.
How long do AirPod batteries last?
- It can be last 5 hours of the listening time or 3 hours of the talking time on a single charge.
- If you charge your AirPods for 15 minutes in their case then it can be last for 3 hours of listening time or up to 2 hours of talking time.
- If you carry the case with you, your AirPods battery can last up to 24 hours after charging it the night before, in their case.
If you want to maximize the battery life of your AirPods, when you are not using them then always put them in the case. Use only one AirPod when making phone calls, because phone calls are solo anyway.
Stop opening and closing the charging case that is the most important thing that you can do. Because it would reduce the battery charge.
So I shared everything about the battery. Please take reference from this article and use your Airpods wisely.
