Nearly every hearing aid manufacturer provides rechargeable hearing device options. But what are the benefits of these devices versus traditional ones? The experts at Hearing Associates explain why you should consider the rechargeable option if you’re in the market for new hearing aids.
Save Money on Batteries
After the initial investment in a docking station, there’s no need to purchase additional batteries. Not only does this save on those purchases, but it also saves you an extra trip to the store when all you need is a package of batteries.
While most hearing aid batteries are recyclable, the use of rechargeable ones greatly reduces waste from packaging and from individuals who do not recycle. Cutting out those last minute trips to the store for batteries also cuts down on emissions.
Less Worry for those with Fine Motor or Vision Issues
Hearing aid batteries are small, making them difficult to hand if you have poor vision or motor skills. A rechargeable docking station eliminates the stress of changing
and handling these tiny batteries.
Easy To Use
By placing your entire hearing device into the docking station, you don’t have to mess with changing or handling batteries. A light indicator lets you know if your hearing
aids are still charging or ready for use.
The amount of use you can get from your hearing aids after charging them varies by product. Some products recharge overnight and last 24 hours. Others only need
to be charged for a few hours to last 12-18 hours.
