    I already received the replacement AirPod just one day after I requested it. Now I'm worried the problem might actually be with my charging case though. Yesterday, I removed the faulty right AirPod that won't charge and charged the case. I haven't put the defective AirPod back in yet and the working, left AirPod was fully charged yesterday.

    When I went to put the replacement AirPod I received today in the charging case I noticed that the charging case was only at 14%. There is no way it should have been that low considering I just charged it yesterday and only the fully charged left AirPod has been put in the case since.

    The replacement AirPod was at 74% when I received it. I put it in the charging case and now both AirPods show at 100% so at least I know this one charges when the old one wouldn't. The charging case is currently at 9%. We'll see what happens after a full charge but I'm really hoping I won't have to have the charging case replaced too.

    Yech... and the charger wasn't subject to any "water" experiences I trust? If so, they should replace it for you. I had a "mishap" (my wife washed my pants without checking to see what was in the pockets, and she killed my charger. The pods were fine but the charger died a premature death.

    No but I charged the case again last night and everything seems normal today with both the case and the AirPods. I'm still not sure what could have happened yesterday to drain the battery overnight with no use. Maybe the cable wasn't tight when I thought it was charging.

    that is certainly possible. Hopefully it will all work out!
