First, know one thing that this is not an issue. Because we can’t turn off the Airpods. So it will always listen for a connection that means it will be active always and it will consume the battery always and check battery percentage always whether you are using it or not airpods will consume battery and to avoid airpods losing battery then you need to put back your airpods charging box only if not airpods will consume battery.
If your Airpods battery drains as usual (when not in use) it is not an issue. If the battery drains so fast, you have to take a step to fix it.

Solution 3 :- Let the battery drain
Don’t charge your Airpods until the battery drains completely. Then connect them to a power source and let the battery fully charge.
Solution 4 :- Turn off “Bluetooth”
Turn off “Bluetooth” on your Mac/iPhone after using the Airpods. Turning off Bluetooth will disconnect the communication between the Airpods and connected devices or else Airpods will always listen to the device and make the battery drain.
Why you have to disconnect Airpods from the device is, Airpods can’t be turned off. So, you should turn off Bluetooth on the connected device.
If you don’t want to turn off Bluetooth, forget the Airpods from the connected device and then reconnect it when you want.
If you are losing airpods battery when not in use then you need to keep airpods in battery charging case or else it will lose battery.
In this case you need to reset airpods, turn off bluetooth, clear the airpods and airpods case, let the airpods battery drain completely and charge it again ,forget the airpods device on your mobile and reconnect airpods.
