Go Rechargeable - Advantages of Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Apr 05, 2021 Go Rechargeable - Advantages of Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Rechargeable hearing aids have built-in Lithium-Ion batteries that do not require regular replacement, compared to hearing aids with traditional zinc-air batteries. Instead of removing the batteries themselves, you place your hearing aids each night in a charging unit, similar to how smartphones and tablets recharge.


Are Rechargeable Hearing Aids Right For You?



Replacing disposable batteries every few days can quickly become a hassle. For seniors with poor vision and limited hand-eye coordination, this task can be especially problematic. It is much easier to dock your hearing aids in a charging case at night, and wake up in the morning with a fully-charged pair!


More Energy Efficient

Bluetooth and streaming are extremely taxing on disposable batteries. However, the use of lithium-ion batteries helps to solve this issue. You can expect rechargeable batteries to hold a charge for up to 24 hours and last years before they need to be replaced. 



Because hearing aid batteries are so small, they are extremely dangerous if accidentally swallowed by pets or kids. Rechargeable hearing aids don't pose this risk unless the entire hearing aid is swallowed.


Better in Cold Weather

Lithium-ion batteries suffer little to no loss in cold weather, making them more efficient than disposable zinc-air batteries.


No Recurring Expenses

Paying out of pocket for new batteries every few weeks can really add up, estimates range from $50-$100/year depending on use and model. Rechargeable hearing aids may be more expensive initially, but the savings will be evident in the long-run.
