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. Not quite ready to give up your current hearing aids? Check out our answers to some of the questions you may have about making the switch to 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 purchasing and replacing batteries – simply plug your hearing aids into your reusable charger and enjoy quality sound every time.
How long is the battery life?
Rechargeable batteries are permanent and don’t need to be replaced the way normal batteries do. Instead, your device is recharged using a charging station. Similar to your cell phone, how long the batteries stay charged will depend on the brand and style of hearing aids. If you’re often on-the-go, ask with your provider about models that a long battery life or a rapid charging station option.
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. Most chargers are small and portable making them travel friendly and easy to fit in a carry-on bag or purse.
What models do rechargeable hearing aids come in?
You have several options when it comes to choosing a rechargeable device that works for you. Whatever you decide, keep in mind that the best rechargeable hearing aids are the ones that feel comfortable in your ears, have features you’ll take advantage of and you can see yourself wearing every day. Your hearing care provider can help you select the right option for you.
