How long do AirPods last?
How Long Do AirPods Last: Their Average Lifespan – AirPods typically last about 2-3 years before most users feel the need to replace them. This short lifespan is because of their lithium-ion batteries, AirPods have proven tough in several durability tests and have shown that they can withstand pressure.
- The bottom line? AirPods are durable,
- But, of course, they also “die.” What does that mean? Well, given the expense, AirPods don’t last nearly as long as they should because their batteries die early.
- Ironically, the battery gradually deteriorates after every charge.
- The more you charge your AirPods, the less charge they can hold.
Soon, your AirPods won’t last for the stipulated 5 hours. This happens because AirPods are equipped with lithium-ion batteries prone to faster degradation with every subsequent charge. Lithium-ion batteries can cause an explosion when taken apart or damaged.
This makes it harder for users to get the old, worn-out batteries repaired. The only solution that remains, then, is to get a replacement battery for the AirPods or their case, thus, driving up AirPods’ maintenance costs even more! Don’t get confused though, despite their lousy rep regarding durability, lithium-ion batteries are still known to be the best,
Apple chose them because they charge faster and last longer than regular batteries. They even have more battery life capacity. However, lithium-ion batteries deteriorate with every charge cycle they complete. In fact, they’re known to self-discharge and typically offer less capacity even if not used for a while.
You complete one charge cycle when you use 100 percent of your battery. Of course, you may not use 100 percent from one charge as some users recharge their Airpods before it gets low. For these users, it can take days to complete a charge cycle. However, if you regularly drain your Airpods’ batteries completely before recharging them, they’re likely to have a lower lifespan.
According to Tektronix, lithium-ion batteries can last up to 3 years or 300-500 charge cycles, depending on whichever comes first. If you notice your AirPods lasting shorter and shorter, your AirPods are dying fast.
