Author : Alexander B
While Apple wasn’t the first to create wireless earbuds, their version certainly revolutionized the concept and gave it a refreshing and innovative new look. When it first came out, people were a little bit confused about the charging mechanism. As previous wireless earphones had a direct USB port that you could charge them with.
The second charging case was a very innovative way to charge the AirPods as it removed the need to carry around cables. It also allowed users to choose between using one or two pods. Naturally, as wireless charging started becoming trendy, people were eager to charge their AirPods wirelessly, and the market responded. To make charging your AirPods a completely hassle-free process, we’ll be listing some of the Best AirPod Chargers On The Market.
1. Apple AirPod Charger Case
If you’re about to upgrade to new AirPods or want to make charging easier, you should consider Apple’s Wireless Airpod charger case. You can simply charge your AirPods by placing it in the charger and then place the charger on a Qi-compatible wireless charger, giving you a much smoother experience. Compared to the original case, Apple’s wireless case is similar in design. This case also has the famous minimal and smooth white plastic frame and a lightning port centred at the bottom.
Apple added a LED indicator that tells you whether the case is being charged or not. Whether you have the original AirPods or AirPods 2, the device will be compatible with both. If you’re buying a new pair, you can buy the standalone version for £79. The compatibility and design make this charging case one of the best cases on the market. We give this AirPod Charger a score of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

2. Catalyst Waterproof Case
One of the many serious risks Airpods are subjected to due to their convenient design is getting lost and accidental dips in the water. While the majority of risks can be offset with any charging case, water remains the archenemy of any technological device. To prevent accidentally turning your expensive AirPods into nothing more than novelty ear decorations, the idea of picking a waterproof case should be seriously considered. Catalyst had the same solution in mind while creating their silicon sheath which can be fit over any existing charging case.
The case protects your AirPods from snow, splashes, and accidental dips. One thing to always bear in mind that the case can only protect your AirPods in a depth of one meter in water and only for a limited amount of time. The case is designed with a flap on its bottom. This flap is there to spare you the hassle of removing it every time you need to charge the case. The brilliance in design continues with a karabiner that is added to secure your AirPods in your pocket or bag to avoid loss and theft. There are two available colours, black and white. However, there is another glow-in-the-dark design that doesn’t only look cool, but it’s also extremely practical to easily find your earbuds case in the dark. We give this catalyst waterproof case 4.8 stars out of 5 at the price point of £29.99.
3. Elago Duo Case
If you want several cheerful cases to match your mood or your outfits, and you don’t want to spend a fortune on your little collection, then the Elago is the perfect charging case option for you. The best advantage you get with Elago is the wide range of different cute designs. Just like other options, the Elago Duo Case fits over your existing charging case which offers you a wide range of different colour options compared to the traditional plain white case.
The “Duo” part of the name is explained by the two-tone design. The case consists of two colours, one for the lid, ad another tone for the body of the case. There are different colour combinations to choose from. All cases are made of silicon to prevent scratches and protect against occasional falls. The only downside to the case design is that it concealed the LED lights is inside the case of the AirPod case 2. This makes it slightly difficult to know for sure whether it’s charging or not. The Duo case retails for £7.99 and has scored 4.5 stars out of 5.
4. Spigen Rugged Armor AirPods Charger Case
AirPods introduced its AirPods Pro in 2019 however, the majority of the cases didn’t work with AirPods Pro. This is because of the Airpods larger size. So the pro version of Apple’s AirPods needs the AirPods pro charger or a compatible case. This is where the Spigen Rugged Armor AirPods Pro Case comes into play.
Its dimensions are designed to snuggly house the extra-sized AirPods, in addition to a very safe shock-absorbing design made out of carbon fibre. It comes with a little clip that you can use to attach the case to a keyring. You can charge your AirPods Pro wirelessly or by using a lightning cable. Also, the LED light shows its charging status. For only £12.20, the Spigen Rugged Armor Case is a pretty neat choice for those on a budget.
5. TORRO Leather AirPod Charger Case
If you’re in the market for a neat and classy look, the TORRO Leather AirPod Charger Case might be the one for you. TORRO is a leather accessories company, known for their leather’s high quality and durability. They decided to start making AirPods cases that improve upon the known plastic-based design that’s been trending for a while.
The durability and stylishness of TORRO’s design is surely a game-changer. The appearance is luxurious thanks to the elegant and tactile leather material used. Also, it is compatible with Qi wireless and cable chargers. The case is made with a shockproof PC, which makes sure your AirPods are safe if the case is dropped for any reason. It’s a bit on the pricey side at £28, yet still looks classier and more expensive than most cases on the market.
There are different AirPod chargers on the market to choose from. Finding the best option that ticks all requirements might be confusing. To limit confusion, I hope this review highlights some of the best available options on the market. Make sure that you compare different AirPod chargers pros and cons.
