How to avoid running out of power when you need it

The best way to avoid running out of power when you need it with the AirPods is to leave them in the case when you are not using them.

By leaving them in the case, you can ensure that there will always be some charge when you need to use them.

Also, AirPods are designed such that you can’t charge them beyond 100%. With that being the case, it is ok if you want to charge your AirPods overnight.

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.

In order to make sure that your AirPods case always has some power in it, it would help to charge your case overnight as well.

Also, when you open the case, without the AirPods inside, an orange light means that there is less than one full charge remaining in the case. When this happens, it is a good time to charge the AirPods case.
