I’m honestly not sure, but I was also asking myself the same question a few days ago.Any idea why this would be? I am surprised that connecting the Airpods case to an iPad pro via a USB-C to lightning connector does not appear to charge the Airpods. Any reason why this would be and any idea how to fix it?
Unfortunately, this is still not working very well. It only seems to charge half or a quarter of the attempts.I actually got it to work eventually - I was confused as the Airpods case does not show as "charging" when you view it on the iPhone, but it actually is. I was able to charge the case from 10% up to 90% in 45 minutes or so.
