What To Do When Your AirPods and Case Won’t Charge Wirelessly

Please try the fixes below. Please test after each step:

1. Check your connections. Make sure that your wireless charger is plugged in. Furthermore, ensure that it is plugged into a power outlet. And lastly, everything is firmly and correctly plugged in. Also, make sure that your case is placed with the status light facing up. And lastly, ensure that your case is placed in the center of your wireless charging mat. You may also want to adjust the position of your device.

2. Use a Qi-compatible wireless charger. Please note that you can only wirelessly charge with Qi-enabled charging pads or stands. The problem could be the charger. If it is possible, try using a different charger. If you can successfully charge with a different Qi-compatible charger, then your charger is causing this issue. You may want to contact the manufacturer.

3. Verify the charge status. It is important to note that when you placed your AirPods to charge, the status light will turn on for several seconds and then it will turn off. This is normal. Your AirPods will continue charging.

4. Take off your case. Does your AirPods Case have any protective cover? If it has, remove it and try again. Although these protective covers should not be a problem, they may cause intermittent charging. So remove and test to see if this helps you.

  • Place your iPhone or iPad that the ‌AirPods‌ have been paired with nearby.
