For listening they seem like they get close to the 5 hour amount, but for calls I'd say an hour and a half or so before they're at 10%. That's a bit less than I'd like but it's fine. However the case seems to lose a lot of charge. I charged to 100% along with Airdpods then unplugged. By the next day the case was at 80%. Used the Airpods for a day, put them back into the case, and by they were charged again the case was down to 50%. Seems like you have to charge the case daily or every other day to maintain a charge, and it doesn't feel like it comes close to charging the Airpods 4 or 5 times as advertised. That loss of such significant charge so fast even when idle makes me worry the batteries won't make it very far, probably right after warranty expires, lol. Overall, I think they'll serve me okay for the year, but I'm VERY open to searching for alternatives. Hopefully by next year there will be some. Apple tends not to update accessories often but I hope they do give this one an upgrade in a year or two. Anyone else have a similar experience or do I have a bad set?
