I am not talking about rechargeable batteries for your hearing aids, I am talking about actual rechargeable hearing aids. No batteries required.
Phonak, one of the top manufacturers in the world of hearing aids and related accessories, has recently come out with a line of rechargeable, over the ear style hearing aids. They come in a receiver in the canal style, and a traditional behind the ear style. Both styles have high quality digital sound. The great thing about these is that they last a full twenty-four hours on one charge. At night when it’s time to take them out for the day, the wearer puts them in their recharging case, which also acts as a drying case. What a genius idea! The recharging case gets plugged into a wall socket. The case is small, much like a normal hearing aid case. If you happen to forget to put them in their case, with a thirty-minute charge they will last six hours. I think that is a pretty great feature.
Repairs have been minimum, due to the fact that there is no battery door for moisture to get into, which is a great plus. No more buying and fumbling around with batteries too, which is great news for our arthritic patients.
As always, you may trial a pair of these here at Higgins Hearing Aid Service and see if they make life a little easier. Give us a call, or stop in for a chocolate break and make that appointment.
