For decades, hearing aid users have been at the mercy of disposable batteries—never being quite sure when they might wear out, having to keep a supply on hand, needing to carry spares in a pocket or purse. And on top of all that, there’s the hassle of fiddling with battery compartments.
The need for hearing devices that can be recharged has been in high demand for a long time. With 84% of people surveyed saying they perceive daily charging as easier than changing a battery, a lot of research and development has gone into the concept.
Hearing aid manufacturers have jumped into the issue of with innovative spirit, bringing groundbreaking technology to the table. Rechargeable hearing aids feature a specifically designed built-in lithium-ion rechargeable battery providing 24 hours of hearing on a single 3-hour charge (just a 30-minute charge provides 6 hours of hearing for short term emergency needs).
Making a product that meets real-world needs.
In order to create a truly relevant rechargeable device, the benefits of rechargeable technology are especially evident in the areas of sports & fitness, gardening & farming, construction and dusty-environment situations. This is achieved through completely encasing the battery in the aid, providing a solid barrier against moisture and dust build-up inside the hearing aid.
Ease of Use
Conventional hearing aid batteries can often be difficult to handle, particularly for those with reduced vision or reduced manual dexterity/fine motor skills. Knowing there are no battery doors to open or small batteries to handle puts many hearing aid users at ease. Rechargeable hearing aids have allowed those who once were unable to change batteries to now enjoy the full benefits of better hearing through amplification.
