This might be a weird question. On my original AirPods charging case, the inside of the case got these black stains near the hinge that from what I read ended up being some kind of metal shavings due to a flaw in the hinge. I was wondering if the newer wireless charging case fixed that issue? I hated how my case got kinda dirty no matter how good I kept it clean.

I am actually on Gen 2 AirPods that I got with a non-wireless charging case. I have kept it pretty clean but since it is an "Original" style Charging case, I figure it was going to be prone to the black shavings issue. Since the wireless case is "newer" I was just wondering if it has less of an issue. I'd consider getting one if it does.

Just to clarify, you're not describing the brass-coloured lines on the side closest to the opening (which I had always assumed were the magnets somehow penetrating the casing.
