If you're using AirPods with an Android phone or tablet, then you’ll probably want to know how to check AirPods battery status on your Android device.
It’s an inevitable fact that the battery life on your AirPods will eventually run out. Thus, it’s a good idea to know how to check the battery levels of your AirPods so that you can know how much time you have left.
Unlike if you want to connect an Apple Watch to Android, Android phones do support AirPods, but checking the battery level is slightly different. Here's how to get the battery percentage of your AirPod as well as the case on your Android device.
How To Check AirPods Battery Levels On Android
There are many apps out there in the Google Play Store that let you check the battery level of your AirPod. A simple "AirPods battery status" search should bring up a lot of apps that will do the job.
We have chosen a free app called AirBattery for this guide, which we think is the best of the bunch. The app is light, has a sleek, clean interface, and most importantly, gives you the most accurate reading of the battery levels of your AirPods and the case.
Here is how to set up the AirBattery app on your Android device:
- The first step is to download AirBattery from the Play Store.
- Once it is installed, launch the app and grant it the necessary permission.
- Now, in the app, select your AirPods model.
- Then, open the lid on your AirPods' charging case with your AirPods inserted and a popup card will appear showing you the battery stats for the case and each AirPod.

How To Check AirPods Battery Levels On Android Without App
Unfortunately, there’s no built-in tool or feature in Android that lets you check the AirPod battery levels. Your only option is to use a third-party app to do the job. We know that these third-party apps are riddled with ads and can sometimes make your device’s battery drain faster than it should.
However, you can easily find a good one that works just fine without any hassle. The AirBattery app, for instance, has a pro version that removes ads and lets you customize the refresh frequency and amount of time between refreshes.
If you don't wish to install an app, you can sort of check the battery life by simply looking at the LED light on the front of your AirPods case. If it flashes green, it means the AirPods inside are fully charged. They're not full if it's orange/amber.

How Can I Check My AirPod Battery Without My Phone?
You can check your AirPod battery levels even if you don’t have your phone. The LED light on your AirPods case will give you some idea of the battery life.
If your AirPods are in your case and the lid is open, then the light shows the charge status of your AirPods. When your AirPods aren't in the case, the light shows the status of your case. Green means fully charged, and amber means less than one full charge remains.
But, if you want accurate information about the battery life of your AirPods, you will need your phone and a third-party app like AirBattery.
