Pixel Buds never charge 0 Recommended Answers 2 Replies 2 Upvotes

This is either my third or fourth pair of Pixel Buds because of how many times I have had to replace them.  Every pair has had the same problem: they fail to charge when placed in the case.  I have reset the case more times than I can count, and the problem has not been resolved.  Is there anything that I can do to try and fix this issue?

Hi Matt,
 
I had a few months where my Buds were constantly failing to charge correctly. I eventually adjusted the way that I place the Buds in the case and the frequency of those problems has dropped way, way down.
 
I discovered that either the way I was wrapping the cord around the case and/or the plastic "bead" being wedged underneath the overhanging portion of the Buds seemed to cause one (or both) of the Buds to twist slightly, breaking the charging connection. I now make sure to insert the Buds very deliberately, pull out a bit of slack from the adjustable fabric loops (which also moves the bead away from the overhang), and then carefully wrap the cord while making sure to leave that slack in place. I then wiggle the Buds just a little to make sure they're firmly seated, verify that the charging LED is pulsing green, and finally close the case and put it aside. 
 
I know it's not a fix by any means but altering my interaction with the charging case has dramatically improved the reliability of the charging connection. Hopefully it will help your situation too.
 
Cheers,
John

I have this issue too, I have tried giving the cord slack, tried reversing and not looping the cord at all. I have used the reset option multiple times but I think there's just issues with the connection so that I have to apply a little pressure to maintain charge 

Anyone else getting this?
