Will a 30w charger overcharge the AirPods case?

Charging your AirPod’s case using a 30w charger is very unlikely to result in the case overcharging.

AirPods and AirPod cases are designed to stop being charged once they reach 100%.

If it were to be the case that AirPods could be easily overcharged, there would be many complaints about it and even lawsuits, so Apple would not design their AirPods in a way that would allow that to happen.

In fact, it can be beneficial to charge the AirPods themselves fully and to leave your AirPods in the case when you are not using them since it will make it less likely that you will not damage your AirPods or that your AirPods will have no power when you need them.

Additionally, leaving the AirPods at 0% charge for too long can actually be more damaging than having them at 100% charge for too long.

This is because lithium-ion batteries do need some power to actually allow themselves to be charged.

Charging the AirPods overnight can help you avoid allowing them to be at 0% charge for too long as can simply leaving your AirPods in the case when you are not using them.
