Tired of replacing your hearing aid batteries?
Phonak has recently released a rechargeable hearing aid, the Audeo B-R. This new hearing aid technology can free you from the hassles of disposable batteries which are small and can be difficult to handle. The lithium-ion technology is fully integrated into the hearing aid so you simply place the whole hearing aid into the charger, no more opening and closing battery doors!
Rechargeable hearing aid solutions have been available in the past, but given users problems with short battery life and inconsistent power output.
Using a lithium-ion battery gives an additional benefit of reduced deterioration of the battery over time without affecting hearing aid performance. Eliminating the battery door from the hearing aid also improves its durability by reducing the chance of battery corrosion or battery door hinges breaking. Hearing care professionals have also benefited from having more time to counsel patients on topics not relating to battery changing and maintenance.
