Change Charging Cable
There are a lot of cheap substitutes for Apple’s lightning to USB cable available in the market which a lot of people use to save money. But these cables are not MFI certified and are of low quality due to which sometimes they cause problems while charging our devices.
Try using another cable and I would advise you to use an MFI certified cable or original Apple cable for all your Apple products.
Change Your Charging Brick
Just like cables, there are a lot of cheap quality Apple adapters available in the market, try using an original or MFI certified charger and that would solve the problem.
Clean The Airpods Charging Port
The Airpods charging port has a lot of dust and they do get piled up after some time due to the dust present in our pockets which can cause problems in charging your case.
You have to be very careful while cleaning your charging port because they are sensitive and could be damaged, use a toothbrush to clean the ports and do not use any liquid.
Take Your Phone To The Nearest Apple Care
If none of the above methods worked for you then the only option for you is to take your Airpods to the nearest Apple care and get it repaired or replaced if it’s under warranty.
