    How’s battery life been for you with your AirPods? Mine seemed to be fine till I got off my most recent call. I got on the call with the buds at 100% and after about 1 hour and 15 min it was down to 26%. That is pretty bad. Apple rates it at up to 11 hours of talk time. This is nowhere close! What is everyone else experiencing?

    According to Apple, "
    • Your AirPods can get up to 5 hours of listening time or 2 hours of talk time on a single charge.
    • With multiple charges in your case, you get more than 24 hours of listening time, or up to 11 hours of talk time.

    With that in mind, if you were expecting 11 hours of talk time on a single charge, that was not gonna happen....

    I only use my AirPods to listen to music and they last pretty well.
    I only charge it once or twice within a week.

    Lol. I think I misread. If it’s just 2 hrs of talk time then it’s closer to my experience. Sigh. It’s been a lonnnng day.

    Quite understandable. No worries.

    I’ve been going over 5 hours on my Pods since I got them last week. I only use one at a time, though, as to not block myself from the world during my day at the office. I have to switch to my L earpiece around 3:30-4 every day. The case also lasts forever for me. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the battery results. I do not regret this purchase one bit.

    One thing to remember, to "extend" talk time, is that you can use one at a time. When I've known I'll be on the phone for a while, I'll remove one of the AirPods and put it in the case to charge. You can either stay with one, switching between the two hourly, or so, or you can go back to two after 15 minutes or so (when the AirPod should be back to close to a full charge). To me, this is one of the great features of the AirPods, that I can switch between using one or both on a call, to ensure that one of them is always charged.

    I just charge the case like once a week. I use them for music at the gym so that's roughly 8-9 hours that they're in use.

    I use mine for music while running daily for 2 hours and 15 minutes and during the day I alternate between them using only one at a time for 2 hours. I charge the case 1-2x a week. The battery life is good enough for me and my usage.

    How much battery drain do you get after a 2 hour run?

    Whoops I should've specified that my time is spread out between two sessions since I run 2x a day. In the morning it's for 90 minutes and in the evening it's for 45 minutes so it's not a straight 2 hours and 15 minutes but the total daily usage for two runs. I haven't paid attention to my battery drain lately since I immediately throw them back in the charging case after disinfecting them when I'm done. Sorry for the miscommunication.

    During a 2-hour gym session my AirPods will go from
    100% down to about maybe 60% and that’s the lowest. This is listening to music only, no phone calls.

    This is random, but does your calves get sore?
    I’m starting to exercise more with my AirPods and my calves get tight real quick.

    Not sure what kind of exercise you’re doing but I run nearly everyday and my calves are fine. I think you’ll be sore initially but once your body adjusts it’ll be less sore.

    It helps to consume lots and lots of water throughout the day. The tightness is more associated with cramping. Keep doing what you’re doing and little quirks like that start to go away before you even realize it.

    +1 for water intake. I drink over a gallon a day and I don’t cramp up and rarely get sick. It’s magic! Ok, back on topic with this thread now ......

    Yep!
    I’m going to start stretching daily too since I’m very stiff.
    I’ve started a plan with NRC and definitely looking forward to the upcoming weeks.

    I'm getting the same results as you if not worse. My Airpods give me about an hours use before it starts chirping in my ear that the battery is low. It would be nice to see Apple improve on that. Love using them as the sound quality is amazing.

    Sounds like you might have an issue... I get easy 5 hours per AirPod for audio listening. If I am on calls that time is less, but not by much. Maybe 3 1/2 to 4 hours.

    On calls. Very short battery life. I have over the ear headphones for music.

    The case had great battery life. Charge the case maybe once a week. The pods are the problem. They are only a couple months old. I may go back and exchange them if it should be better.
