Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Rechargeable hearing aids are a great way of reducing the money you spend on batteries. Hearing aid batteries typically last anywhere between 2 and 10 days depending on how much you use them and what you use them for. If you are streaming the TV and all your phone calls through your aids then it is likely you will need to replace the batteries more often.

 

Moving from battery operated hearing aids to rechargeable will result in a change in your hearing routine. You will go from remembering to change the battery to remembering to charge the battery. Any change to routine takes some getting used to and there will always be a period of adapting. There are a few things you can do to try and make the change to rechargeable aids as seamless as possible.

 

1. Charge at night

We think the best time to charge your hearing aids is at night when you go to bed and definitely won’t need them. Waking up to a full days’ charge is obviously the best thing for you.

2. Keep the charger next to your bed

Most people keep their hearing aids on their bedside table as it is the last thing to be removed at the end of the day. For this reason, it is advisable to keep the charger in the same place so you always have the visual reminder to put them on charge. Both your aids and your charger will be small enough to fit discreetly on the bedside table.

3. Battery health

The most ideal situation to charge your aids is for the charging unit to be connected directly to a wall socket (and not a laptop, for example) in a room that is not too hot. Extreme temperatures can damage the lifespan of a battery or prevent it from charging correctly.

4. Don’t stress!

There are going to be times when you do forget to charge them and that is ok, you don’t need to panic. Every now and again it’s ok to give them a kick boost charge of 30-60 minutes in the morning.
