How much Charging is Needed in Bluetooth Earbuds?

Before your earbuds reach a battery level below 20% of their full charge, you should charge them. When it rises even higher, you can charge.

Given that lithium-ion batteries power your earbuds, two components affect their battery life:


Extreme temperatures hinder the performance of lithium batteries. The battery gradually deteriorates health and performance, especially in extreme temperatures, like heat and cold temperatures, resulting in irreparable damage. The ideal temperature to maintain is between 20 and 60 degrees Celsius.

Charge Cycle:

Charge cycles are how lithium batteries work. A battery uses a charge cycle whenever its charge falls below 20%. Typically, the battery has 300-500 cycles before it needs replacement. You will have to remove your earbuds because you cannot replace them.

How does Charging work in wireless headphones?

The wireless headphone sends radio waves that other connected devices pick up. Therefore, there is no need for a physical cable or connection to transmit signals. Keep your devices close together because radio waves aren’t as strong as those from a satellite or radio tower.

Things to do if the Earbuds are Not Charging

Your earbuds may not be charging for the following reasons: 

Use Original Charger:

Because each battery has a unique capacity, manufacturers include an in-box charger in their products. Using a different charger risks overcharging the device, which can damage the internal circuits. Therefore, if you have been using a different one, stop using it immediately and purchase the original charger to charge your earbuds.

Use a wireless charger:

The Type-C charging port might have some issues. Give it a shot if your earbuds can charge wirelessly. If it charges appropriately, you need to replace the charging port, or you can keep using the wireless charging method.

Clean the charging port:

Ear wax or dust particles settling on the charging pads in the case can prevent earbuds from connecting with the charging pins. You can clean the area well by using a Q-tip and some isopropyl alcohol. Give the charging pins a thorough rubdown with the cleaning stick, even if you don’t have the alcohol.
