How long does it take to fully charge AirPods depends on the version of AirPods you have.  AirPods are wireless Bluetooth earbuds created by Apple.

The most important thing to understand about how to charge AirPods is that you don’t charge the earbuds on their own or directly. Instead, you charge AirPods and their case at the same time. Think of the AirPods case as essentially a big battery pack. When you place the AirPods into the case, the individual AirPods charge themselves by drawing power from the case into the batteries in the earbuds. So, there’s a two-part, two-device process here: In order to charge your AirPods, you have to charge your AirPods case first. [2]

The AirPods’ charging case will take about an hour to fully charge, and once you place your AirPods inside. A fully charged case can recharge your AirPods three to four times.[3]
