Your AirPods Pro can work for up to 4.5 hours when it is 100% charged. However, they are programmed to stop charging at 80%, and it won’t start again until they think you need that extra 20%. That means they won’t stay in your ears as long before they have to be put back in the case. And you could end up with dead AirPods Pro when you’re gone, can’t hit a charger, and your suitcase is empty.
Rather than bringing a portable power bank to charge your AirPods Pro case and AirPods Pro, there’s one setting you can turn off.
Apple introduced “Optimized Battery Charging” for AirPods Pro in iOS 1
To turn off optimized battery charging for AirPods Pro, connect your AirPods Pro to your iPhone and go to Settings -> Bluetooth. Tap the info (i) button next to your AirPods Pro, then tap the switch next to “Optimized battery charging”. Your iPhone will give you the option “Turn off until tomorrow”, which you can choose if you want to take a break. However, you need to tap “Disable” if you want to disable the feature for good.
