“AirPods were destined to become e-waste from the moment they were manufactured. And AirPods become e-waste after just eighteen months, when the irreplaceable lithium ion battery dies.”


@lunar They only last 18 months???? So unethical. Do you know if this is true for all Bluetooth headsets? I just bought a plain $35 pair of Skullcandy Bluetooth headphones. It didn’t occur to me that the rechargeable battery might be designed to fail in two years?! If that is the case, I’m gonna be so pissed.

@franciecashman I'm sorry but I have no idea. I use headphones with wires.

@franciecashman I have a Skullycandy bluetooth headphone since at least 3 years and the battery has still a very good autonomy ;)
