What You Need to Know about Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Posted by Associated Audiologists on May 8, 2018 11:58:00 AM

How Do Rechargeable Hearing Aids Work?

Rechargeable hearing aids like the BEYOND Z use rechargeable silver zinc micro-batteries. These hearing aids use the lowest amount of energy of any rechargeable. All rechargeable hearing aids can be recharged overnight, just like your phone, but in the case of the BEYOND Z, it also accepts traditional zinc-air batteries, so if you run out of charge, traditional batteries can be used as a backup power source. If you already have BEYOND hearing aids, an audiologist can retrofit them to be rechargeable by changing the battery door for a fee.
