A new leak has claimed that Apple’s next generation of wireless earbuds will incorporate extremely fast charging technology. According to a post on Twitter made by XDA Portal writer Max Weinbach, the Apple AirPods 2 will be able to wirelessly charge from 0 to 100% in just 15 minutes, and that includes charging the case.

Max Weinbach has claimed in a recent tweet that the supposedly upcoming AirPods 2 device from Apple will feature the kind of rapid charging technology that will put a smile on any owner's face: 0-100% in a measly 15 minutes – earbuds and case.

The current generation of AirPods offers around three hours of usage after a 15-minute charge, so it’s reasonable to say the rumored wireless charging time for the successor is impressive. But this fast charging technology comes at an apparent cost: The case will be heavier and larger.

Considering the charging case of the original AirPods weighed only 1.34 ounces (38 g), a little extra weight for superior charging times is hardly a huge sacrifice. It’s speculated the AirPods 2 will utilize the Qi standard for wireless power transfer.

Apple is expected to hold a press event on March 25, which will likely focus on the company’s service subscription plan. However, there is a reasonable chance the AirPods 2 might get announced at the event, especially considering the rumor that the earbuds could be made available to the public on March 29.
