Five Reasons to Choose Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Last update on Oct, 07, 2020

Today’s hearing aids come in many convenient styles, designed for a range of needs and preferences. But did you know that some modern hearing aids don’t even require 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.

Miracle-EarENERGY™ hearing devices are designed for modern living, ideal for individuals who are on the go and want an alternative to tiny replaceable batteries. Read on for answers to some of the questions you may have about day-to-day life with rechargeable hearing aids.

What are the advantages of 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 of their size, 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 long do rechargeable hearing aid batteries last?

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.
