    Hey guys.

    I hope by posting this here some wise people might reply to my worries.

    Usually I use my airpods with my macbook pro. I've noticed that even when I disconnect it over at the bluetooth settings, it still looses battery. Around 10% in 1 hour.

    Is that behavior expected?

    I've also noticed that while using them in a google hangouts call, it doesnt seem to last more than 2 or 3 hours. Does the usage of mic consumes that much more battery or is my unit defective?

    It is probably looking for connections. Does it lose similar amounts if you power it off?

    My Bose QC35s also drain if they are on and not connected.
