AirPod Batteries Aren’t Replaceable
Apple does offer limited battery service for AirPods. However, Apple warranties only cover defective batteries, not wear and tear, so it’s not much good for the average user. It’s also not entirely clear how Apple services these batteries – as we’ve already covered, AirPods simply aren’t designed to have their components replaced, which makes it much more likely that Apple is simply replacing AirPods entirely to the tune of $50-$70 each. That is a pretty expensive biennial fee just to use wireless earbuds.
So if you are interested in having true wireless earbuds that last forever, AirPods or AirPods Pro probably aren’t for you. Fortunately, there are other options on the market, and some are a bit more inventive. Take a look around, and you can find creative alternatives. Syllable is famous for creating earbuds that have detachable batteries – when the battery starts to die; you can just replace that component. Aminy also has true wireless earbuds with replaceable batteries. There are other options out there with a little bit of research! They might not be as pretty, or sound as good as AirPods, but they may last quite a bit longer. Note that we may earn a commission from products purchased using our links.
