As an AirPods owner, I was wondering how quickly my AirPods would charge and if they feature fast charging. In this post, I will show you if AirPods fast charge and why it does not matter.
AirPods do not feature fast charging. However, the case only takes an hour to charge and the AirPods themselves only take 20 minutes to charge and charging them for 5 minutes gives 1 hour of listening time.
Some people wonder if using 20w or higher chargers will allow AirPods to charge faster. However, anything beyond 5w won’t charge the case any faster. With that being said, the case will charge about 20-30% more slowly when being charged wirelessly.
