AirPods cases are great – but they could be better. You could upgrade to one with wireless charging for one, getting either the Apple model or even one from a third-party company. We've assembled all the best of these cases so that you can upgrade, or even replace a lost case. These are the best wireless charging cases for AirPods.
Best for most
Apple's wireless charging case is the standard. It looks and feels just like the case in the box, and works exactly as you would expect. You might pay more for it, but you'll get the best wireless charging AirPods case. Hands down.
As long as you're replacing your AirPods case, there's no reason you have to stick with white, right? This one comes in four colors: light green, purple, black, and white.
Another wireless charging replacement case with some colorful options, CIVPOWER'S can get you three hours of listening time from a 15-minute charge. A full charge to the case will get you five AirPods charge-ups.
The Chillyfar Wireless AirPods Charging Case looks a lot like Apple's, and it functions in much the same way. Just pop in your AirPods, and then place the case on any wireless Qi charger.
For AirPods 3
If you own Apple's third-generation AirPods, they won't fit in a case designed for AirPods 1 or 2. This one works for the newer AirPods 3 and it looks just like Apple's.

If you have a pair of AirPods, AirPods 2, or AirPods 3, then your best bet for a new case is going to be the Apple Wireless Charging Case. It's more expensive, but you'll get the bulletproof Apple reliability, and it will 'just work.'
If you want to spend a little less money then there are still plenty of options. There's the bargain-priced JinStyles, and they come in loads of cool colors. They won't quite give you the same amount of battery as the Apple option, however.
No matter which case you end up going for, you're going to be able to keep your AirPods charged up. That wireless charging function is going to make it easier too, letting you simply place them down on a charging pad and forget about them.
Can I charge my AirPods without a case?
No, you're going to need a charging case. That could be one equipped with wireless charging on not, but there's no way to fill them with battery without one.
