    Hi everyone,

    I have a problem with my Airpods. When I put in into the case the Airpods charge, but when it is charged with 100%, if I see the level of battery one hour later WITHOUT take the Airpods, the battery level of AirPods is 98%, then, another hour later come back to 100%. Why? Anyone have this problem?

    I think that this waste battery clicles but not is necessary.

    Too I have the problem with quality of Siri in AirPods.

    Thanks.

    Best regards from Spain.

    No, my AirPods case is good. In a complete night it only waste 2% of battery. My problem is AirPods battery, when I put it into the case, the AirPods go to 100%, but the AirPods battery in the next hour down a 2%

    I've noticed mine doing this too. Seems pretty normal. When most devices are at 100% charge and still connected to power, in reality they are draining slightly and recharging again. For example, draining to 98% and recharging back to 100% again. iOS devices and Macs report all true states of charge from 98% to 100% as being 100% so as not to confuse the user. The AirPods are probably reporting their true charge. The effect may be magnified with tiny batteries too since 98% vs 100% is a minuscule amount of lost charge.

    Okay, I think I remember some people mentioning that somewhere, but I can't find where. I believe the consensus was there's nothing you can do about it, as there's no way to turn the AirPods off.

    I doubt it's actually a problem as such. Modern devices draw power even when they're not doing much as such (typically called "standby mode" or such), powering the bluetooth hardware for example in order to do such things as report the battery level you are so concerned about... ;)

    It's a non-issue. Once the airpods are fully charged, they stop charging. Once the battery on the airpods goes to 95% it then starts to top it back up to 100%. Macbooks does this too if you only use the outlet, same with ipads, iphones, ipod. etc.

    But with this process we don't waste battery cycles?

    The way I see it, if this significantly shortened product life, then people would be complaining about it. But most people are happy with their device's battery life function, even after a few years of use

    Since AirPods are a new product, we don't know for sure how well their battery will hold up over the years. But if they work like iPhones iPads MacBooks, then it shouldn't be a problem.

    Your earphones will last years, easily. When was the last time you wore out a battery in one of your gimmicks? I personally never have. You'll either upgrade or lose them before the batteries die, without a (reasonable) doubt. Of course, they might fail too, but probably not that either.

    Another question is about case battery. In a night (8 hours) with AirPods inside, it waste a 10%. Is normal? Thanks!!!!
