In tests by famous YouTuber Marques Brownlee, it has shown that although AirPods Max go into sleep mode after two hours after leaving them off the table but w ithout a shell and although they are still connected to the iPhone , the consumption is about 1% of your battery. Tests indicate that after a full day of not touching AirPods Max, disconnecting from your iPhone, or entering the case, consumption was 3% of the total battery.
Other YouTubers performed the same tests and in the case of Andru Edwards, for example, it shows that in 10 hours their battery ran out by 3% and leaving them out of the case overnight consumed a total of 8% of their battery, so standby time may vary depending on the iPhone they may be connected to. Logically, it is preferable to leave these AirPods Max in the event that they are removed to keep them as protected as possible and especially to activate this low consumption mode which allows greater autonomy. Obviously the consumption by leaving them out of the case is not that high, but it will depend on the situation and needs of each user.
