Rechargeable hearing aids are a type of hearing solution that’s gained popularity in recent months, and there are certainly some pros and cons to take into consideration when looking for a new hearing aid. Rechargeable hearing aids have actually been available for a long time now, but they didn’t gain popularity due to the power output. As battery technology has advanced, rechargeable aids became much more effective. Advanced Audiology offers Santa Clarita residents the highest quality hearing aids, including top of the line rechargeable hearing aids.

There are two notable types of batteries advancements that revolutionized hearing aids: Lithium-ion and Silver-Zinc. Both of these batteries meet the standard “one charge per day” cell power. There are some significant pros and cons to take into consideration when choosing rechargeable hearing aids. Some of the most obvious benefits include no more expensive battery changes. Not only will you save money by recharging the battery cell, but you will also be minimizing your carbon footprint on the environment by reducing your battery usage. The technology has finally reached the one-charge a day standard so you can have a peace of mind for a full day of hearing.

While there are many benefits to using rechargeable hearing aids, there are some cons that should also be taken into consideration. The batteries are made of poisonous materials such as lithium-ion, so it is important to monitor the devices and ensure they don’t get in the hands of children or pets. Another important factor is the fire hazard that they present. They must be handled with care and only replaced by a professional. Lastly, it is important to take into consideration the power limitations that go along with using the rechargeable hearing aids. If you are streaming audio, such as from a mobile device or MP3 player, then there is a possibility that the batteries will not last the full day.

There are several different rechargeable hearing aid brands to consider, and Advanced Audiology carries the best on the market. Let’s review some of the options below:

Oticon Opn has been a leading force in hearing aid technology, and their very popular Opn miniRITE is rechargeable. With an easy overnight charge, the hearing aids will carry a full charge for the day without the hassle of handling batteries. You will no longer need to replace the batteries every few days, and you don’t need to open the battery drawer on it. However, the aid was designed to also run on disposable batteries in case of emergencies, so that you’ll never be without hearing.

Another hearing aid brand we carry at Advanced Audiology is Phonak. Their new line of rechargeable hearing aids are the quickest charging, and longest lasting aids ever. With their built-in lithium-ion battery technology, you can free yourself from the hassle of disposable batteries with charge times that last 24 hours! With a simple 3 hour charge, the Phonak technology is 40% more powerful than regular rechargeable batteries.

Starkey Hearing Technologies are another powerful hearing aid company, which offer a rechargeable battery hearing aid. Starkey’s ZPower battery option allows continuous, stable, and uninterrupted hearing aid use throughout the day. A pair of ZPower batteries can take the place of about 200 disposable batteries.

ReSound also offers a brand new rechargeable hearing aid. Advanced Audiology suggests this option for an entry level hearing aid that is convenient, and helps save money. The Hearing aids deliver up to 14 hours of power, and 2 hours of streaming.
