    Just discovered that the Apple Watch charger can charge the wireless AirPods. Pretty cool.

    I tried it and it didn’t work. Weird.

    Just tried mine, worked.
    But it was position sensitive.
    Slowly rotated it until I got the green light.
    I also tried it on another wireless pad first so maybe I woke it up....

    I might be mistaken but doesn't the old Apple Watch charger (i.e series 0) use Apple's own proprietary standard to inductively charge? If that's the case, it won't charge the Airpods 2 wireless charging case since it doesn't use the same standard (Qi)

    Man always annoying to see posts like this without any details - coming from IT>

    @F23 what Apple Watch version did your charger come from and worked?
    Judging from common knowledge I doubt this worked but I'm curious.

    It is the Series 0 Watch and charger that I have. It works.
