Since update or maybe one more time coming soon problem with rattle gate - each time I open AirPods Pro right bud is not charged to 100% when left is.

Do you have similar problem or have a solution?

Never had this issue after got replacement pair after rattlegate half of year before.

I am seeing this on my AirPods 2. Uneven charging or sometimes one seems to not charge at all. Just yesterday I put one in my ear after taking it out of the case and right away it made the dead battery sound. I put it back in and took it right out and it was then showing 85% battery.

Same with my AirPods Pro 1st gen.. sometimes it doesn’t charge and still play music while it’s inside the case.. and ended up still having the 30% battery all night. I think it has something to do sometimes I drop it on the concrete or asphalt road multiple times.. the only solution is try cleaning the dirt inside with the cotton buds or tissue..putting them back and forth in charging case until it charges which makes me do like 10 times and now it charges… ❤️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀
