Hearing Aids Misplaced More Frequently
For most people, we are currently living through unprecedented times. New safety measures have become the new norm.

If you are frequently misplacing your hearing aids, there’s a solution for you. Starkey’s Halo and Halo 2 hearing aids feature the “Find My Hearing Aids” in the TruLink Hearing Control app for your smartphone. Simply download the app onto your smartphone and this function can help you locate recently lost hearing aids.

Batteries that are Disposable
Up until recently, all hearing aid batteries were only available in a disposable form. There are currently several hearing aids that can be recharged.
Disposable (zinc-air) batteries come in four sizes and are color-coded. The batteries are activated when they come in contact with air, after the colored tab is detached. This will then permit oxygen to enter the battery. You should wait to remove and toss out the tab until you are going to place the battery in your hearing aid to use. For a longer battery life, take the tab off and let the battery sit for a minute before inserting it into your hearing aid.
When a battery loses its power, you have to replace it. You should always keep extra batteries with you.
The average disposable hearing aid battery lasts 5-7 days, depending on the battery size, how often the hearing aid wearer uses the device, how complicated the listening environments are, how long they stream music or television into their hearing aids, etc.
Disposable hearing aid batteries do not need a charger, making them easy to travel with. You only need your hearing aids and your batteries.
Batteries that are Rechargeable
Rechargeable batteries are available for nearly all styles of hearing aids - BTEs (Behind-The-Ear) and RICs (Receiver-In-Canal).
Batteries do not Need to be Changed
Rechargeable hearing aids are convenient. It eliminates the need to change out batteries, which can be tiresome and challenging for anyone with dexterity issues.
Wearers do not need to regularly buy hearing aid batteries, following the initial cost of the hearing device.
Hearing aids can be charged once a day, and be used for almost the entire day.
Charging is Easy

For over three years, two hearing aids can use at least 300 disposable batteries. Only two rechargeable hearing aid batteries would be used for each device, and they would provide the same exact power.
