Rechargeable hearing aids are revolutionizing the way people experience the world around them. They offer the ease of daily charging rather than repeated battery replacement for seamless connectivity and convenience. With proper care, these innovative devices can last for years. Here’s everything you need to know about hearing aid care, charging protocols, and more.
How Do I Care for My Rechargeable Hearing Aid Batteries?
Taking care of rechargeable hearing aids is simple but crucial. Here’s what to do:
- Keep them dry: Moisture is the enemy of rechargeable batteries. When you finish using your hearing aids for the day, wipe them down with a dry, soft cloth.
- Avoid extreme temperatures: Place your charging case in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight or freezing conditions.
- Use the correct charger: Always use the charger that comes with your rechargeable hearing aids. Attempting to use any other charger may damage the batteries.
How Do I Charge My Rechargeable Hearing Aids?
The most convenient time to recharge your hearing aids is overnight while you sleep. Follow these steps:
- Place the hearing aids in the provided charging case, ensuring proper alignment. The hearing aids will automatically turn off.
- Connect the charger to a power source. A light indicator should show the charging progress.
- Allow the hearing aids to charge fully, which should take no more than three to four hours.
How Long Does a Rechargeable Hearing Aid Battery Last?
Rechargeable hearing aid batteries have an impressive lifespan. Most provide 20 to 30 hours of use on a full charge. The overall battery life ranges from three to five years, depending on care and usage.
Can You Replace Rechargeable Hearing Aid Batteries?
Yes. Replace your rechargeable hearing aid batteries once they no longer hold a charge. If you notice a significant decrease in battery life, consult your hearing care provider to replace the batteries with the correct type and specifications.
How Can I Extend the Life of My Rechargeable Hearing Aids?
Follow these tips to help your rechargeable hearing aids last as long as possible:
- Place your hearing aids in the charging station when not in use, even if they haven’t drained fully. Constant charging won’t drain the battery or shorten its life.
- Don’t store your hearing aids in an unplugged charging station. This slowly drains the batteries and shortens their life.
- If your hearing aids have a battery door, don’t open it when not in use. While this preserves battery life for disposal batteries, the opposite is true for rechargeable hearing aids.
- If you won’t be using your hearing aids for a while but can’t put them in the charging station, turn them off and store them in a safe place where they won’t get damaged.
