How do I know if my AirPods are eligible?

Due to the nature of our swap service, we cannot accept AirPods that are in the following conditions:

Ineligible Physical Conditions:

  1. Broken or have broken mesh

Please note, if your charging case is no longer working (due to water damage, corrosion, etc.) these replacement AirPods will not resolve your AirPod issues.

How does the AirPod battery replacement swap work?

Bring your old 1st or 2nd Gen AirPods into the Panther TECH store. You’ll receive a fresh pair of AirPods with new battery life in exchange for your old pair. You will receive the same version that you bring in.

*AirPod swap does not include a case! We only exchange AirPod buds. If your AirPod charging case is damaged, a replacement swap will not improve your AirPod performance.

Will I receive real AirPods?

Yes! The AirPods you receive are authentic AirPods with new batteries. The replacement batteries are rated for similar performance as your originals.

Will I receive my own AirPods back?

No, you will receive a refurbished pair of AirPods that have undergone battery replacement and cleaning/sanitization.

What happens to my AirPods after I give them to Panther TECH?

Your buds are in good hands. Podswap takes them, replaces the battery, puts them through advanced cleaning, and then makes sure to find them a new home.

One of my AirPods dying quicker than the other, can I buy just one AirPod?

We are not currently offering single replacements. From our experience, we find that when there is a battery issue occurring on one side, the battery on the other AirPod will have a similar issue in due time.

How long will my batteries last in the Replacement AirPods?

The batteries are similar in performance to your original ones from Apple.

Will the new AirPods work with my old charging case?

Yes! See instructions here for how to reconnect your fresh pods to the new case.

Which AirPod generations do you accept?

We currently accept AirPod Generation 1 & 2.
