How long does the battery last?
When it comes to battery capacity, everything is the same as the Freebuds 4 – each earphone has 30 mAh, in case another 410 mAh. Specifications state that the buds will last up to 4 hours of listening without ANC and 2.5 hours of sound control on (at medium volume). The charging case, in turn, will provide a battery life of up to 22 hours without ANC, or up to 14 hours if using ANC.
As a result, one hour of listening to music at high volume (90-100%) by turning off the ANC lifts 35% of the charge, and in this case, earbuds will last a little less than 3 hours. So, if the volume is reduced by half, you can do a full calculation at 4 hours. The buds in the case can be charged in about an hour, and the case will require the same amount to charge on the wire without the buds inside.

Should you buy the HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick?
After learning about Freebuds Lipstick, I came to the conclusion that Huawei’s new TWS headset is not just about good looks. And it’s not just the re-release of Freebuds 4 with a new design, although it’s clear that the buds are very similar.
Colors and high content are the main attraction. But the sound is just as good. Excellent, too. One of the best in the class. Add to this solid ANC, high-quality microphones for communication, reliable connection and convenient touch controls. And if you remember how Freebuds 4 completely destroyed Apple AirPods in all respects, you’ll get a general idea. Perhaps the only drawback is the price. But deluxe is deluxe – it’s expensive, but it’s worth it.
