Changing hearing aid batteries is one of the common concerns of hearing aid users. Most hearing aids on the market run on disposable zinc-air batteries. These zinc air battery lasts between 2 to 12 days on average and requires users to change the batteries manually. This can pose difficulty especially to users with dexterity and vision issues.
Since the introduction of rechargeable hearing aids, they have been one of the more a popular choice among hearing aid users today. They are convenient, eco-friendly, and users no longer have to carry spare batteries. Also, the long-term costs of a rechargeable hearing aid is equal to the costs of a hearing aid which runs on disposable batteries.
Among all the rechargeable options we highly recommend Phonak’s rechargeable hearing aids as they are the quickest charging, longest lasting rechargeable hearing aids on the market. In fact, they give you 24 hours* of hearing with a simple 3-hour charge. While a 30-minute charge can give up to 6 hours of full performance. Phonak also provides its users a wide variety of charging options including a power pack for travel purposes.
