    I just tried that on the Belkin Boost Up 10w that previously would not charge my AirPods case and it worked!!

    Yeah the wirelessly charging AirPods are a problem with a LOT of Qi chargers for this reason. Glad this solved your issue, but Apple really made a design faux pas here.

    the battery gets too warm, software might limit charging above 80 percent. Your iPhone will charge again when the tempera

    I now put a business card on the charging pad first, and no more problems.

    But a design flaw indeed. We need an acronym for that: Yet Another Design Flaw - a YADF. Pronounced yadduf.

    Yeah... it sort of boggles the mind that Apple didn’t catch this in testing. I mean, they had long enough...

    I have also problems charging my case with the 10W Belkin boost UP, sometime’s it charge a few % up and then it is over.
    Other time’s it does not charge at all.
    The white light from the charger lights up, but after 10-20 minutes the charger lights up orange.

    I am now trying to charge it with a small carton between the case and the charger but after 15 minutes not 1% up, still @56% as when it started.

    Did anyone heard of a fix for this already?

    I’m having this issue too: AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case and the Nomad Wireless Charging Base Station with Apple Watch. After 10mins or so, the orange light on the charger goes off and the case stops charging. At first I thought it was because I had positioned the charging case slightly off on the Nomad pad (it’s a bit tricky as there are 3 charging coils and for Airpods case + iPhone at same time, Airpods case has to be on the left coil), but it happened enough times that I came to look on the forums to see if others were having issues. And lo and behold this thread! Frustrating! I’ll try adding a piece of cloth to see if that helps, but we shouldn’t have to...

    This actually worked for me on my Belkin Boost up 10W wireless charger. I put a piece of cloth inbetween the charger and the case and the next morning the airpods were at 100%. I'm kinda happy it works, but also a bit mad. This is a big design flaw from Apple.

    Yeah it cheeses me off just about every day. I’m amazed Macrumors hasn’t put up a post about it in their news. It’s a significant design flaw.

    I’m having this problem with an inexpensive Monoprice charger. Charges for 3-5 seconds then the orange light turns off and it stops charging. Nothing has worked yet—I’ve tried placing several things between the case and charging pad with no luck. Charges my Xr just fine.

    Edit: I didn’t understand that the status light is only supposed to light for 8 seconds (Apple Support). The AirPods are at 100% and the case is now charging.
