If you have recently bought AirPods or AirPod pros, how you should be carrying your AirPods around. This post will show you the best way to carry your AirPods around and why you should normally just leave them in the case when not in use.

The best way to carry your AirPods around is by leaving them in the case when not in use. By doing so, you can ensure that your AirPods have charge when needed, be less likely to lose your AirPods and avoid allowing your AirPods to be at 0% charge for too long.

Often, people worry about leaving AirPods in the case because of a fear that having the battery charged all the time will cause it to degrade more quickly.

However, this is not really the case and allowing your AirPods to be at 0% charge is actually much more damaging.

It is best to leave the AirPods in the case when you are not using them. So, it would be best to carry the case around with you and to put your AirPods in there when you are not using them.

Do I need to carry my AirPods case with me?

It is not absolutely necessary that you carry the AirPods case around with you. The case is necessary for you to be able to connect your AirPods with a device for the first time.

However, after that, AirPods will automatically connect with the device regardless of how nearby the case is.

With that being said, it is still recommended that you keep your case with you.

By having the case with you, it will be possible to ensure that your AirPods have battery when needed, that you can connect your AirPods to a new device if needed and that you will be less likely to lose your AirPods.

How do I avoid losing my AirPods?

The easiest way to avoid losing your AirPods is to leave them in the case when you are not using them and to remember where you put the case.

What happens if you don’t put AirPods in the case?

The case is necessary so that you can connect your AirPods to new devices and so that you can charge your AirPods. The case can also be a convenient place to store your AirPods when you are not using them.

If you do not put your AirPods in the case, they will use up power and eventually die; even if they are not in use.

In addition, it will not be possible to pair your AirPods to new devices without placing them inside the charging case.

AirPods don’t disconnect when far from the case since the case is only needed for the initial pairing with the device.

Nevertheless, the AirPods must be close to the iPhone or other device playing. As a general rule of thumb, the distance between the AirPods and the device should be between 30 and 60 feet to establish and maintain strong Bluetooth connectivity.

If you happen to lose the case, it is possible to buy a new one from Apple that you will then be able to pair your current AirPods with.

How long do AirPods last without the case?

The third-gen AirPods give you 6 hours of listening time and 4 hours of talk time. The AirPods pro give you 4.5 hours of listening time and 3.5 hours talk time.

Even when they are not in use, they will still be using power since they will still be connected to your devices and ready to start playing sound or recording your voice.

With that being the case, it would be best to leave your AirPods inside the case when you are not using them so that you do not run out of battery even though you are not using them.
