We take a look at some of the key aspects of rechargeable hearing aids and show how they can help you on your way to better hearing health…

What are rechargeable hearing aids?

In contrast to traditional hearing aids with disposable batteries, rechargeable devices have built-in power units that do not require regular removal. All you have to do is dock your model each night on a charging unit - similar to the way you would charge an electric toothbrush, say, or power up your smartphone - and it’ll be refreshed and ready to go by morning.

What are the benefits of rechargeable hearing aids?

As hearing aid technology continues to evolve, we are seeing numerous improvements and features on devices that support the general wellbeing of users. Rechargeable hearing aids are an excellent option for people who have less dexterity in their hands and would rather not change batteries themselves.

In addition to this, some of the other benefits of rechargeable hearing aids include:
  • Small and discreet: Depending on what model you pick; your rechargeable hearing aid is likely to be inconspicuous and fit cleanly inside the ear without any hassle. This is because the most up-to-date hearing aid technology is usually accompanied by more efficient, user-friendly designs.
  • Durability: With technological advancement comes greater battery life. Current rechargeable hearing aids usually hold their charge for up to 30 hours, lasting up to six years before they need to be replaced*.
  • Safety: While it’s unlikely to occur, disposable button batteries have proven to be extremely dangerous if accidentally swallowed by pets or children. Rechargeable hearing aids do not pose this problem.
*Accelerated capacity lab testing at room temperature
