The Benefits of Rechargeable Hearing Aids
In contrast to disposable button batteries used in hearing aids, we have seen a huge shift towards rechargeable hearing aids.
Let’s look at why.
No more fiddly battery changes
You no longer have the concern, expense or inconvenience of purchasing, carrying, changing, even losing disposable hearing aid batteries. The average lifespan of a lithium ion battery is 3- 5 years (depending on the manufacturer), and this can be easily changed in clinic by your audiologist or by the manufacturer.
Little button batteries can be very hard to manage for some people – no longer a concern with Lithium-ion rechargeable hearing aids. Given the average lifespan of hearing aids are roughly 5 + years, in this time one’s health and physical needs may change. Therefore it is important to consider the ability to manage hearing aids during time of choice and with one’s future dexterity in mind.
Easy and convenient
Rechargeable hearing aids simplify many of the traditional bug bares that hearing aid wearers often have to worry about. Now you simply place your hearing aids into the charging dock each night and they are ready to go when you are. Convenient mini chargers and battery packs are also available with select models.
Allow for extended features and benefits
Rechargeable hearing aid batteries allow hearing aids to do more, for longer. Some rechargeable hearing aids allow you to stream directly to your TV, listen to music, connect to countless devices, and take hands free calls on your mobile phone. Plus, some offer fall alerts, transcription voice to text, and remote support with live hearing aid adjustments with your Audiologist.
Moisture and dust protected
Specifically with lithium-ion batteries, the hearing aid is completely sealed. These hearing aids are more resistant to dust and moisture with a high Ingress Protection rating (IP68), reducing maintenance concerns, improving performance, reliability and can increase the life of the hearing aid.
Rechargeable hearing aid models with completely sealed batteries encased in the hearing aid itself means there are no tiny button batteries on the loose. This allows for peace of mind if you have young children or pets around.
24 hours of hearing
Can last day and night with one simple charge, including streaming to television, music, phone calls and much more.
Super quick charging
Rechargeable hearing aids can give you up to a full day of hearing with a 2-hour charge. If you’re in a hurry you can rely on a short 15-minute charge to give you up to 3 hours of full performance. Charging times vary by model and brand.
