Many of the devices we use every day can be powered by one or two types of batteries, rechargeable batteries, or disposable batteries. Hearing aids are no different. Rechargeable hearing aids are becoming more popular every year.  And as their popularity has increased, the number of models has increased.  But why have hearing aids with rechargeable batteries become an increasingly popular choice for many people?

The Advantages of Hearing Aids with Rechargeable Batteries

  • A full day’s power every day.
  • Ease of use for individuals with decreased dexterity, visual disorders, or decreased fingertip sensitivity. Just place the hearing aid on or in a unique docking system (similar to a hearing aid case), and the battery in the hearing aids will charge overnight.  It’s a process much like charging a smartphone.
  • Better for the environment, rechargeable batteries require replacement annually. Non-rechargeable hearing aids will require replacement of the battery every week to two weeks
  • Less worry about harm to pets and small children. Hearing aid batteries are tiny and easy for little hands and curious pets to pick up and swallow.  Rechargeable batteries can be left in the hearing aid to recharge, which means you are less likely to leave a battery in an easily accessible location.
