Rechargeable hearing aids, goodbye to batteries!
Rechargeable hearing aids have been on the market for a long time, but to date they were not optimally used, as the battery lasted no more than 2-4 hours. But today the landscape has changed and on the market there are already rechargeable hearing aids that last up to 24 hours on a single charge.
The battery in these hearing aids is made of Lithium-Ion, a material that has a much greater capacity to store energy than other materials used so far. In fact, many mobile or car manufacturers are also using it, because it has been proven that the battery lasts much longer. Hearing aid batteries are small and also consume very little. This allows a hearing aid to be charged in 3 hours and can be used for a whole day:
Furthermore, lithium-ion batteries typically last around 5-6 years, just the recommended time for changing a hearing aid.
What advantages do rechargeable hearing aids have at the hearing level?
The hearing technology used in rechargeable hearing aids is exactly the same as what we use in other hearing aids. The only thing that differentiates a rechargeable hearing aid from a conventional one is the use of battery or batteries.
What technological and functional advantages do rechargeable hearing aids have over battery-powered ones?
Usability: the user does not have to be aware of the batteries and, above all, it facilitates handling. Many times there are confusions to put the batteries in and with the rechargeable ones all you have to do is charge them every night in their charger case. These hearing aids work very well, for example, with people who have osteoarthritis or do not see well.
The forecast: rechargeable hearing aids give you a warning before turning off. Half an hour before running out of battery they warn the user of their low battery level, which allows them to anticipate the next charge. In addition, depending on the hearing aid model, you can also check the battery status through a mobile application.
"Eco-friendly": rechargeable hearing aids are more sustainable than battery-operated ones. They are powered by an electric current through a USB, which eliminates a multitude of highly polluting waste for the environment, such as batteries. Caring for the environment benefits us all!
Savings: Conventional hearing aids use an average of 60 batteries per year, depending on the model. Can you imagine the savings it represents throughout its useful life (between 5-7 years)?
