No fuss, eco-friendly hearing aids free you from battery changing chore

Worldwide, around 15 billion single-use batteries are thrown away each year! [1]

Posted Thursday August 4, 2022

The latest eco-friendly rechargeable hearing aids mean less pollution and no more fiddly battery changes.[2] And in the medium to longer term they are cheaper. All leading hearing aid manufacturers offer a broad range of rechargeable aids to suit all lifestyles and budgets.

Not only do you have the option of the familiar receiver in the ear and behind the ear styles, but in the ear and custom made devices are also now available in rechargeable styles. This is exceptionally beneficial for those with limited dexterity or vision who find battery doors fiddly, and for those who live busy, active lives.

Rechargeable aids continue to get better and better. Simply insert the hearing aids into the charger and in 3 hours they are fully charged from empty. 

Overnight charging is ideal. However, if you’re in a bind and short on time, needing your hearing aids for an event, just 30 minutes in the charger typically gives an additional 6 hours of battery life. 

Ask about your charger options as some will give you three days charging from a single charge of your case.

If you travel a lot, you do need to remember to take the charger with you. Also, pack it in your hand luggage to take on the aircraft with you. You don't want to get to your destination to find your charger has been confiscated by the airline. 

If you’d like to try out rechargeable hearing aids, we’re offering a 14-day obligation and risk-free trial during August. So make an appointment at one of our clinics. Phone 0800 547 836.
