What are the benefits of rechargeable hearing aids?
Advancements in technology mean that modern rechargeable hearing aids are renowned for their long-lasting battery life. With a single full charge you can expect hearing aids to last up to 24 hours, including several hours of audio streaming. Alternatively, if you’re in a rush you could choose an express charge which will keep you connected for a few more hours.
The charging process itself is quick and incredibly easy. With most rechargeable hearing aids you simply you need to place them on the docking station and they’ll automatically begin charging. LED indicators will show you when the process is complete and the hearing aids are ready to use. Unsurprisingly, people commonly choose to charge their hearing aids over night when they’re aren’t needed.
For anyone who struggles with their dexterity (handling and adjusting small objects), rechargeable hearing aids can relieve some of the frustration of traditional hearing aids. Conventional hearing aid batteries need to be pretty tiny in order to fit into the small compartments of modern and more discreet hearing aids. However, their size can make it more difficult for you to slot them in on a regular basis. With rechargeable hearing aids, you don’t have to fit any battery yourself. Ultimately, this makes your hearing aids more pleasant to use.
In addition, rechargeable hearing aids are more environmentally friendly. The chemicals in batteries mean that they have to be disposed of in a specific way to stop them becoming an environmental hazard.
Rechargeable hearing aids can be wonderfully reassuring. You don’t need to panic about forgetting to buy a new set of batteries or bringing a few spare pairs when travelling. Furthermore, rechargeable hearing aids that use the silver-zinc system still allow you to use traditional batteries if your charger should break for whatever reason.
What types of rechargeable hearing aid docking stations are there?
As the technology progresses, brands are developing innovative new ways of charging your hearing aids. If you want to make sure that your hearing aids are kept safe, you can buy a case for them which has an in-built charger, as well as the ability to dry out the hearing aids. This has the added benefit of increasing the longevity of your hearing aids by keeping them in tip-top condition.
With a rechargeable hearing aid power pack, there is nothing to stop you travelling and exploring to your heart’s content. There are now power packs available which can charge your hearing aids multiple times over, keeping you going for several days without access to electricity. That means you can go camping, head to a festival or travel great distances and stay connected. At My Hearing, we believe that hearing loss shouldn’t hold you back.
