Rechargeable Hearing Aids Q & A

What are rechargeable hearing aids?

Rechargeable hearing aids feature a battery that’s rechargeable, rather than disposable. Rechargeable hearing aids have been in existence for a long time, but older brands weren’t very popular because they didn’t hold their charge for very long.

Advances in modern technology have made significant improvements to rechargeable hearing aids. These devices are now fitted with lightweight batteries that can hold a charge for 24 hours or longer.


How do rechargeable hearing aids work?

Like all hearing aids, rechargeable devices help people with hearing loss by amplifying sound, so it’s easier to hear. 

Rechargeable hearing aids are fitted with either a lithium-ion or a silver-zinc battery. When you take off your hearing aids before you go to sleep, you connect them to a charging port to recharge overnight.


What are the benefits of rechargeable hearing aids?

Rechargeable hearing aids offer an alternative to the expense and hassle of disposable batteries. 

Lithium-ion batteries won’t need to be replaced frequently, if at all. Silver-zinc batteries typically need to be replaced once a year. 

However, silver-zinc batteries can be removed from the shell of your hearing aids, so they can be interchanged with disposable batteries, offering flexibility if you’d like to use your hearing aids without needing to charge them for a while. 


Am I a candidate for a rechargeable hearing aid?

If you have hearing loss that can be addressed with a hearing aid, you can choose a rechargeable device. Some of the conditions that hearing aids can treat include:

  • Age-related hearing loss (presbycusis)
  • Sensorineural hearing loss
  • Ménière's disease
  • Tinnitus

The team at Beach Cities Hearing Solutions can provide you with detailed information about the different brands and models of rechargeable hearing aids. 

Options for color, design, and even audio streaming are available for several models of rechargeable hearing aids. It should be noted that the use of streaming audio can impact the life of the charge.
