Batteries — the main problem AirPods?

Despite the fact that the AirPods went on sale in late 2016, the interest in wireless headphones Apple is not quenched to this day. However, it is not surprising – the company has managed to bring to market a truly breakthrough solution that does not have worthy counterparts (even now) in the market of wireless headphones. And everything would be just fine, if not for one thing – AirPods have a limited life.

As you might guess, we are talking about a miniature battery installed in the AirPods. Despite its tiny size, these components, according to Apple, the headphones provide up to 5 hours of battery life. However, such statements are relevant only for new headphones — because as you know, any battery gradually loses its capacity. In practice, this means that the wireless headset will work on a single charge for less and less. But is it possible to replace the battery?

I hasten to disappoint — to replace the battery impossible. The fact that AirPods have a fixed design. Therefore, to access the insides if you can only cut the body. Of course, after such manipulations to reassemble the accessory is not possible. And the only solution to this problem is complete replacement of the component new.

In accordance with the established rates, the replacement of the headset or the case will cost$ 49 (if AirPods still under warranty) and 69$ (if the warranty period has expired).

Thus, complete replacement of all three components will cost the user even more expensive than buying a new AirPods. And change only one earphone makes no sense, because when you use second will discharge much faster.

The conclusion from all this can be done as simple as possible — users should keep in mind that AirPods, despite its high price, have a limited service life. Usually it is a few years. After that, most likely, have to buy another pair of headphones.
