Best answer: Yes! You can charge your AirPods wirelessly using an additional case. Apple has just launched its own AirPods wireless charging case, while there are several third party options as well.

Apple's official case works with both generations of AirPods

Apple just announced its own wireless charging case for the AirPods, and whether you have the first generation, or the new second-generation AirPods, it's undoubtedly the best, and safest, way to wirelessly charge your AirPods. Third party charging cases on Amazon don't work as well, as some just provide an outer shell for your existing AirPods case that can charge wirelessly.

The AirPods have technically always supported the Qi wireless charging standards, but you needed to have a compatible case. Apple's case provides this and presumably, also covers you if anything goes wrong with your AirPods as you're using an official accessory. Rather than have to use a case in a case, Apple's official wireless charging case replaces your existing AirPods case.
