Is your right AirPod not charging in the case? Don’t worry, it’s a common problem that many AirPods users face. Yesterday, when I took out my AirPods from the case, I noticed that the right AirPod was only 2% charged while the other was 100%.

I searched the internet, I realized that thousands of other AirPods users reported the same problem. So, why is my right AirPod not charging?
Your right AirPod is not charging because you haven’t inserted your AirPods properly or your charging case is dirty. Also, if your charging case has a low battery, then AirPods will not charge. First, clean the metal contacts and charging case with a microfiber cloth dipped in isopropyl alcohol. Then insert both AirPods into the case and connect the charger. If nothing helps, you may need to reset your AirPods to fix the software issue.
How To Fix The Right AirPod That Won’t Charge?
There could be many other reasons too. This article will look at the various reasons and their solution.
1. Insert Your AirPods Properly
The most common reason for not charging AirPods is that they’re not properly inserted in the charging case. Due to this, one AirPod isn’t making contact with the charging pin.
To fix this, remove both AirPods from the charging case, insert them again, and close the lid.
2. Clean Your AirPods And Case
If you look at your AirPods, you’ll see metal contacts on the tip of each AirPods. This goes into the case and attaches to the charging pin of the case.
If any dust or debris is stuck into the case, your AirPods will not connect to the battery and won’t charge.
So, first, remove both AirPods from the case and clean the metal contacts with microfiber cloth and isopropyl alcohol. Also, thoroughly clean the AirPods case with isopropyl alcohol.
After cleaning your AirPods and case, let them dry for a few minutes to evaporate the alcohol, and then insert them back into the case.
3. Full Charge Your AirPods Case
If your AirPods case isn’t sufficiently charged, your AirPods will also face charging problems. Your case battery level should be at least 60%.
Place both AirPods into the case and place it on a wireless charger or insert your iPhone’s lightning cable.
