Advantages of Rechargeable Hearing Aids

In Hearing Aids by exceptional

Since the first hearing aid was made 100 years ago, hearing aid technology has grown by a great deal. One of the most recent improvements to hearing aids is that they now come with rechargeable batteries.

At first, rechargeable batteries that were small enough to fit in hearing aids didn’t have enough power to move the needle. But lithium-ion technology has made hearing aid batteries that can be recharged last longer and be more reliable.

How do rechargeable hearing aids work?

It’s the same as your smartphone. Batteries are already built into the hearing aids. These can’t be changed or switched out. Instead of taking out the batteries to charge them, you just have to put the hearing aid on the charger every night. It’s really that easy! You’ll have power for the whole day when you wake up.

Hearing aid batteries today are rechargeable and use lithium-ion technology. These long-lasting batteries can easily last a whole day. The batteries give you enough power to listen to your way, whether you use complicated apps to help you hear or stream music all day.

Benefits of lithium-ion rechargeable power

Charging with no hassle

Hearing aids that can be charged let you hear clearly without having to deal with hearing aids that need to be thrown away after each use. If you have trouble using your hands, disposable batteries for your hearing aid are very inconvenient. You have to work hard to get the tabs out of the package so you can put them in your hearing aids.

Helps you build a good routine with your hearing aids

For a full day of use, disposable hearing aid batteries should be changed every 3 to 10 days. Since it’s hard to know when they’ll run out, you’re always armed with extras. Batteries can die at bad times, like during a board meeting or a concert. But even on long days, rechargeable hearing aids can give you enough power for a full day. You don’t have to worry about your hearing aids during the day because you know they are strong enough. And if you forget to charge them, don’t worry -many rechargeable hearing aids can be plugged in for 30 minutes to an hour and then used for a few hours.

No extra costs

If your devices use regular hearing aid batteries, you’ll need to plan how much you’ll spend on batteries over a year. Depending on your power, you may need to change the batteries every few days. The cost of these batteries quickly adds up over the life of your hearing aid. Rechargeable hearing aids don’t have these extra costs, and most rechargeable batteries last about five years.

Children and pets will be safer.

Children and pets can get hurt by tiny hearing aid batteries. If you use disposable hearing aid batteries, keep them out of reach of children and throw away used ones in the right way to keep them from eating or choking on them. Using hearing aid batteries that can be charged makes your home safer for your kids and pets.

More environmentally-friendly

You won’t have to worry about where to throw away dead batteries or what effect all the batteries you throw away every year might have on the environment.

Weekend Charging

Do you often travel for work or on the weekends? Many hearing aids that can be charged on the go come with portable battery chargers. These can keep your hearing aid batteries charged for two or three days without having to plug in your charger. This makes it even easier, and you won’t have to worry about the batteries in your hearing aids running out.
