Hi! I just got my first pair of AirPods Pro 2. Question, when the AirPods are in the case and are fully charged, do they stop charging? I noticed that my AirPods are at 100% battery, but my iPhone's battery widget shows the lightning indicator next to the AirPods which makes me think they are still charging. I have battery optimization enabled and am trying my best to keep the as healthy as possible. Thanks!

Yes, the lightning icon will stay on. It’s probably supposed to mean that power is available. I’m not sure if the icon goes away when the battery optimization algorithm kicks in — I have it enabled on mine, but it rarely does anything, as my usage isn’t very regular.
