Benefits of Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Published on Oct, 06, 2020

Modern hearing aids come in a variety of convenient styles that were designed to help fit every need. Did you know that some of the latest hearing aids don’t need batteries? Instead of carrying around spare batteries and replacing them every week or so, rechargeable hearing aids let the wearer enjoy daily use without ever worrying about a dead battery needing to be replaced.

Rechargeable hearing devices are designed for today’s busy lifestyles, ideal for individuals who are on the go and want an alternative to tiny replaceable batteries. Check out the answers to some of the questions you may have about day-to-day life with rechargeable hearing aids.

Why choose rechargeable hearing aids?

While replaceable batteries work great for some people (they’re small enough to fit in your pocket), they do require that the user has a certain level of dexterity. Because they are so tiny, they can be easily dropped or misplaced when they’re not activated in the hearing device.

As an alternative, rechargeable hearing aids use Lithium-ion technology. This means there’s just one permanent battery in the device that’s recharged externally when plugged into a charger. In fact, with Lithium-ion technology you won’t even need to think about hearing aid rechargeable batteries – simply use the charger that comes with your device and enjoy quality sound every time you wear it.

How big is the hearing aid charger? Is it easy to travel with? 

Rechargeable devices are designed to be hassle-free and convenient for people living an active lifestyle. The charger’s small, portable size makes it travel friendly and easy to fit in a carry-on bag or purse. 

What makes rechargeable hearing aids so special?

Rechargeability is just the beginning of the benefits when it comes to rechargeable devices. As mentioned above, these hearing aids have advanced hearing aid technology like directional microphones and Bluetooth connectivity. Plus, you’ll enjoy the way each model is designed for ultimate comfort in noise. Instead of hearing a blur of noise in a loud environment, each sound will be optimized for your ears, so you’ll feel well-adjusted in any situation and be able to hear with ease.

The environmental adaptability feature means your hearing aid settings will automatically adjust to the sounds in your location, allowing you to seamlessly transition from place to place without manually making any changes to your device’s program. Our rechargeable hearing aids have robust sound quality as well, so sound isn’t simply amplified, but fine-tuned for clarity and comprehension. Both rechargeable models are also designed to resist water and debris better than previous versions.

How long is the battery life for rechargeable hearing aids?

Rechargeable batteries are permanent and don’t need to be replaced the way normal batteries do. Instead, your device is recharged. In fact, rechargeable hearing aids can be charged in as little as 30 minutes. After a quick half-hour charge, you’ll be ready to wear your hearing aids for up to eight hours. That means you can simply plug your devices into the charging station while you prepare for a day of activity, and then put them on before leaving the house to enjoy your activities with high-quality sound. You can also charge your devices overnight for longer use. With an overnight charge, they’ll last up to 24 hours, so you can enjoy more than an entire day of sound.

Using electromagnetic induction, Lithium-ion batteries are recharged conveniently without any tiny plugs or cords to connect. All you’ll need to do is rest your rechargeable hearing aid on the charger for the process to begin. There’s no need to worry about dropping or misplacing tiny new or old batteries in the process – simply set the device in the charging chamber and you’ll be all set.
