How often do most people charge their AirPods case?

How many charges does the AirPods case contain?

The AirPods gen 3 can give up to 30 hours of listening time and 20 hours of talk time. This should give 5 full charges since the AirPods themselves can give up to 6 hours of listening.

The AirPods Pro case can give 24 hours of listening time. So, it should allow you to get 6 full charges since the AirPod Pros themselves can be used for up to 4 hours of listening.

Should I charge my AirPods case every night?

The AirPods case is designed so that it will not charge beyond 100%.

There is nothing stopping you from charging the case every night and it can be a convenient way to avoid allowing your case to be without power when you need it.

However, leaving a lithium-ion battery at 100% all the time can cause it to degrade slightly faster.

However, the extra convenience of being able to charge the case at night is worth it for most people and it is actually a lot worse to allow the case to be at 0% for too long.
