What to Do to Charge Your AirPods with an AirPod Charging Case


If you're charging case stops working or is misplaced in any way, there are a few different options depending on the status of your AirPods charging case. 


When your AirPods charging case is misplaced or lost, the first step is to try your hand at finding them. Use the Find My app to see if you can locate the last known location and if it is safe, return and retrieve the case. If your case has no charge, the Find My app will only show the last known location. If you have an AirTag or Bluetooth tracker attached to your case, you can use that software to see if you can locate the case.


If you cannot locate your AirPod charging case, the best option is to purchase a replacement one. You can purchase directly from Apple or from a reputable third-party retailer that sells authentic Apple replacement parts, such as Re-Cell Exchange. Buying a replacement charging case from Apple can sometimes cost as much as a new set, even with Apple Care. Buying a replacement case from a reputable third-party retailer is a great way to buy a new AirPod charging case at an affordable price that allows you to get back to using your AirPods in no time.


Quick Note: You want to ensure you are purchasing the right case, whether it's for the right generation or whether it's the AirPods or AirPods pro.
