The engineer designed a charging case for AirPods Pro, which facilitates the repair of the gadget

Short description

Summarize this content to 100 words Engineer Ken Pillonel presented a design for a modified case for AirPods Pro headphones, suitable for repair. The housing of the final device can be disassembled, all components can be replaced and reassembled. At the same time, no glue is used in the structure, which reduces the repairability rate several times.The details of the case were printed on a 3D printer, and all measurements were taken from the original AirPods Pro case. The device is assembled without glue. Instead, the engineer used miniature bolts and nuts that allow the case to be disassembled and the contents accessed. The battery and other important components are connected using connectors, so they can be replaced without soldering. Pillonel also used the development from its previous project and implemented a USB-C port.The finished project is presented in white and black colors, and Pillonel is ready to share the printable files so that anyone can make their own version of the repairable AirPods Pro case.In his past projects, engineer Ken Piloonel has already replaced the Lightning port with a more universal USB-C in the AirPods, AirPods Pro and iPhone X cases, which he then sold at auction for $86,000. Pillonel also did the reverse operation and built Lightning into an Android smartphone.
