How Long Do AirPods Pro Take to Charge?
Charging Your AirPods Pro Case
Once your AirPods Pro case runs out of battery, you can charge it by placing it on a Qi-compatible charging mat or by using the Lightning cable that comes with the AirPods Pro. Here are the steps to charge your AirPods Pro case:
Place your AirPods Pro case on a Qi-compatible charging mat, with the status light facing up. The status light should turn on to indicate that the case is charging.
Alternatively, connect the Lightning cable to the Lightning port on the bottom of the AirPods Pro case, and then plug the other end of the cable into a power source. The status light should turn on to indicate that the case is charging.
If you have the wireless charging case for your AirPods Pro, you can also charge the case by placing it on a wireless charger.
When the AirPods Pro case is charging, the status light will stay on. Once the case is fully charged, the status light will turn off.
It typically takes about 2 hours to fully charge your AirPods Pro case using a Qi-compatible charging mat or Lightning cable. If you have the wireless charging case, it may take slightly longer to charge.
Remember that the AirPods Pro case can hold multiple charges for your AirPods, so you don’t need to charge it as frequently as the AirPods themselves.
Fast Charging Your AirPods Pro
If you’re in a hurry and need to charge your AirPods Pro quickly, you can use the fast charging feature. Here’s how to fast charge your AirPods Pro:
Make sure you have a compatible USB-C to Lightning cable. This can be the cable that came with your AirPods Pro, or a third-party cable that meets Apple’s standards.
Connect the USB-C to Lightning cable to a USB-C power adapter. The adapter should have a minimum power output of 18 watts.
Connect the other end of the cable to the Lightning port on the bottom of the AirPods Pro case.
The status light on the AirPods Pro case should turn on to indicate that the case is charging. After about 5 minutes, you can use your AirPods Pro for up to 1 hour of listening time or up to 1 hour of talk time.
To fully charge your AirPods Pro case using fast charging, it takes around 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Note that the fast charging feature is only available for the AirPods Pro and not for the standard AirPods. It’s also important to use a USB-C power adapter with a minimum output of 18 watts, as using a lower power adapter may not charge your AirPods Pro as quickly.
Tips for Prolonging AirPods Pro Battery Life
To get the most out of your AirPods Pro battery life, try the following tips:
Keep your AirPods Pro at room temperature: Avoid exposing your AirPods Pro to extreme temperatures as it can affect the battery life. Don’t leave them in your car on a hot summer day or outside in the freezing cold.
Manage your usage: The more you use your AirPods Pro, the more often you’ll need to charge them. Try to limit use when possible, or use one AirPod at a time to extend the battery life.
Turn off Active Noise Cancellation: While Active Noise Cancellation is a useful feature, it also uses more battery life. If you’re not in a noisy environment, turn off this feature to save battery.
Use low power mode: When you have low battery life, you can activate low power mode. This will extend the battery life, but at the cost of some features like the “Hey Siri” feature.
Charge your AirPods Pro case regularly: The AirPods Pro case can hold multiple charges for your AirPods. Charge it regularly to ensure your AirPods are always charged when you need them.
By following these tips, you can extend the battery life of your AirPods Pro and get the most out of them.
Troubleshooting AirPods Pro Charging Issues
If you’re having issues charging your AirPods Pro, here are a few troubleshooting steps to try:
Check the charging cable: Make sure the Lightning cable you’re using to charge your AirPods Pro is working properly. Try using a different cable to see if that solves the issue.
Clean the charging contacts: The charging contacts on your AirPods Pro and the charging case can get dirty over time, which can interfere with charging. Use a clean, dry, and non-abrasive cloth to wipe them down.
Restart your AirPods Pro: Try restarting your AirPods Pro by placing them in the charging case and closing the lid for at least 15 seconds. Then, open the lid and try charging them again.
Reset your AirPods Pro: If none of the above steps work, try resetting your AirPods Pro. To do this, press and hold the button on the back of the charging case until the status light starts flashing amber. Then, reconnect your AirPods Pro to your device and try charging them again.
Contact Apple Support: If none of these steps work, it may be a hardware issue. Contact Apple Support for further assistance.
By following these troubleshooting steps, you can hopefully resolve any charging issues you’re experiencing with your AirPods Pro.
AirPods Pro Charging Times
Here are the charging times for the AirPods Pro and their charging case:
AirPods Pro: The AirPods Pro can be charged in their case for up to 24 hours of listening time or up to 18 hours of talk time. A 5-minute charge will give you around 1 hour of listening time or 1 hour of talk time. A full charge takes around 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Charging Case: The AirPods Pro charging case can be charged using a Qi-compatible charging mat or the Lightning cable that comes with the AirPods Pro. It takes around 2 hours to fully charge the case using either method.
Note that the battery life of your AirPods Pro will depend on usage and settings. If you frequently use Active Noise Cancellation or make phone calls, your battery life may be shorter.
