Share This:

Are your AirPods or i12 charging improperly? If you’ve noticed that your left AirPod or i12 is not charging, you’re not alone. Many users have experienced this problem, and it can be incredibly frustrating. In this blog post, we’ll cover why it might be happening and what you can do to fix it.

First and foremost, make sure that the charging case has its own charge. If the charging light isn’t on, then your AirPods may not be able to charge properly. You should also confirm that the charger is intact and properly connected to a power source.

If these steps don’t solve the issue, the next step is to try resetting your AirPods or i12s. To do this, press and hold the setup button on the back of your charging case for at least 15 seconds until you see a white light flash three times. This will reset your AirPods or i12s to their factory settings, wich may help them to charge properly again.

If resetting doesn’t work either, then there may be an issue with either your AirPods or i12s themselves that needs professional attention from Apple Support. They may be able to diagnose the problem and provide a solution for you quickly and easily without needing to go through a lengthy repair process.

Finally, if all else fails and you still can’t get your left AirPod or i12 earbuds to charge properly, it might be time to invest in a new pair of headphones altogether! Hopefully, these tips have been able to help you troubleshoot any charging issues with your current pair of headphones so that they can last as long as possible!

Troubleshooting Left AirPod Charging Issues

If your left AirPod is not charging, it’s likely due to a few common reasons. Firstly, make sure that your charging case is fully charged and the charging light is on. Secondly, check to see if the lightning cable you’re using is securely connected to both the case and a power source. Lastly, check for debris or dirt in the AirPod’s port as this can prevent a successful charge. If none of these steps work, you may need to factory reset your AirPods or get them serviced by Apple.

Troubleshooting an Issue with AirPods Charging

It’s possible that one of your AirPods has a low battery, or that the charging port on one of the AirPods is blocked or damaged. You can try cleaning the charging port with a soft, dry cloth to make sure nothing is blocking it. It could also be an issue with your charger – check to make sure the contacts on the charger are not bent or broken. If these don’t work, you may need to contact Apple Support for repair options.

Troubleshooting an Uncharged Earbud

It’s possible that one of your earbuds is not charging due to a faulty connection. This could be caused by corrosion, dirt, or debris in the port or a loose connection within the port itself. It’s also possible that the cord you’re using to charge your earbuds is not compatible or has faulty wiring. To ensure that your earbuds are charging correctly, try another charging cable or port and check for any visible damage on the ports or cables.


In conclusion, AirPods are a great way to stay connected and enjoy your music on the go. While they do have their issues, there are usually easy fixes such as resetting or charging the case. If all else fails, you can contact Apple for assistance. With proper care and maintenance, AirPods can be a great addition to your tech arsenal for years to come!
