But what happens if you lose your case or someone else needs to borrow them? Can they still be charged? This article will answer that question and provide some tips on how to charge your AirPods when you can’t find your case.
Can You use Someone Else’s Case to Charge Your Airpods?

- Second, you should ensure that the case has enough power to charge your AirPods. If the case is running low on power, it may not be able to charge your AirPods fully. To know the battery level of the other charging case, you can check by placing the AirPods in the case and then opening the lid; A green light will indicate that the case has more than 60% power, while an orange light indicates that the case has less than 60% power.

If you charge your AirPods with someone else’s case, they may become unpaired from your iPhone. If this happens, you can simply pair them again by opening the lid of the case and holding the button on the back for a few seconds.
