The PowerPod Case Review

PowerPod-1

After backing up in around March, today I got my PowerPod Case in about a week after getting an email of it being shipped. Everything happened according to schedule, with shipping aimed at July, and I'm really happy with that.

In short PowerPod is a silicon case for your AirPods that not only protects their case but enables them with wireless charging from any Qi-enabled charger.

The PowerPod fits the AirPods really nicely. The case doesn't flop around and the headphone's case sits there nice and firm.

PowerPod-3

In my tests the PowerPod added about 18% to the AirPod's case battery within 15 minutes of charging. The case got a bit warm though, while using with my standing Samsung Wireless Charger.

One thing I got puzzled about was that the charging case wasn't reaching the middle of the charger. A quick 180 degree turn later and it started charging nicely. That's not what Apple would approve but since their AirPower is delayed almost for a year now it's better than nothing. And by the way, even Apple can't handle their own design each time right 🙂

You probably already noticed the single con of the PowerPod - the rubber that it's built of collects all the lint in all of your pockets. But on the flip side it keeps your AirPods safe from falls (mine are chipped a bit after a year of use) and scratches and even helps opening the lid easier with that additional grip.

Overall I can highly recommend the PowerPod Case for those who wants to secure and charge his AirPods wirelessly along with their other Qi-enabled devices.
