Have you ever worried about how much battery-life there is in your hearing aids, while you were going about your daily life?
Rechargeable hearing aids, which use lithium-ion batteries, may be the answer. They’re available for wearers of all ages and ranges of hearing loss.
What makes lithium-ion batteries the most reliable choice for rechargeable hearing aids?
1. It is Small, Yet Powerful - Lithium is a light metal. When it is used to make batteries, a lot of high density energy can be stored in a small size. It is able to manage the power that is necessary for newer, progressive technology. Previously, nickel metal hydride were used by manufacturing companies. When technology became more advanced, more power was necessary. The additional technology makes batteries drain faster. This can cause some rechargeable hearing aids to run out of power before the end of the day, or they need to be bigger in order to handle the power.
2. There’s no Replacement Necessary - Some lithium-ion batteries can last nearly the same life expectancy of a hearing aid - or six years. This also means that the rechargeable hearing aids don’t need a door. Because the lithium-ion battery is enclosed inside the hearing aid, there are no seams to allow moisture and dirt buildup.
3. Better Efficiency than Anticipated - The lithium-ion battery life can actually work for up to 36 hours when it is completely charged. A 24-hour day is possible by charging it for 90-minutes. A 15-minute charge can give wearers three hours of hearing.
4. There’s always room for Improvement - The consumer electronics industry is trying to improve the battery’s technology. Because lithium-ion batteries are coming in smaller sizes and different shapes, this gives hearing aids new options and new technologies.
