Rechargeable hearing aids

Are you tired of your hearing aid batteries running out unexpectedly? Modern, rechargeable hearing aids are growing in popularity. There's no need to buy battery replacements, meaning that both your wallet and the environment benefit.

How do rechargeable hearing aids work?

Rechargeable hearing aids usually run on lithium batteries (the same kind found in most smartphones) or silver-zinc batteries.

To recharge your hearing aids, place the hearing aids in the charging station before you go to bed, and the batteries will be fully charged in the morning.

What hearing aids are rechargeable?

Currently, all rechargeable hearing aid models are behind-the-ear hearing aids.

Life made simple:

  • Rechargeable batteries are replaced every 4–5 years (on average)
  • Recharging is simple
  • 3–4 hours of charge gives a full day's charge
  • Save money over time
  • All-day use
  • Environmentally friendly

How long do rechargeable hearing aid batteries last?

Rechargeable hearing aid batteries usually take about 34 hours to fully recharge and will keep your hearing aids going for around 24 hours. The battery itself should last as long as the hearing aid, which will be roughly about 45 years. Once you've had hearing aids for this amount of time, you should consider upgrading. But if you just need a battery replacing, bring them to us and we can help you.

Some rechargeable hearing aids are fitted with silver-zinc batteries. These batteries are removable and can be replaced easily by a hearing care expert. You can expect these batteries to last about one year.

Keeping your rechargeable hearing aid batteries healthy

We recommend placing your hearing aids in their charging station whenever they're not in use. This way, you'll always know where to find them!

You can charge your hearing aids as often as you want, but make sure that the charging station is plugged in 
– when the hearing aids are sitting in an unplugged charging station it can drain the battery and shorten the life expectancy of your hearing aids.

If you're not going to use your hearing aids for a while (and they do not need to be charged), simply turn them off and store them in a safe place.
