Rechargeable Hearing Aids
A recent Consumer Reports survey showed that 53 percent of hearing aid wearers find rechargeability to be an essential hearing aid feature.
This preference for rechargeability should not come as a surprise, with the average hearing aid wearer having to change their batteries 120 times a year, and hearing aid users already enjoying such technology on their smartphones, tablets and laptop computers.
Rechargeable hearing aids have grown massively in popularity in the last few years, down in no small part by the emergence of rechargeable lithium-ion technology.
This technology creates energy by moving lithium ions from a negative to a positive electrode within a battery cell. It has achieved a high level of use in consumer products because it is lightweight, low maintenance, and has a high battery capacity, which allows prolonged use after a short charge cycle. This is the rechargeable technology already being used in mobile phones, headphones, and tablets.
Lithium-ion technology means you can say goodbye to replacing hearing aid batteries. You reuse the same battery with these rechargeable hearing aids and place it in the charger at the end of the day. To learn more about rechargeable hearing aids visit us in Lakewood, CO.
The Benefits of Rechargeable Hearing Aids
How long do rechargeable hearing aids last?
Li-ion batteries are sealed inside the hearing aid and are usually only accessible by the hearing aids' manufacturer. These are said to last from 4 to 5 years before needing to be replaced. Conveniently, this is about the same amount of time hearing professionals recommend using a hearing aid before returning it.
