The power requirements of hearing instruments varies. Hearing aid batteries can last anywhere from several days to a couple of weeks. Today’s technology is great but it needs power. We use many electronic devices daily. Think about how long your cell phone or tablet run before needing to be recharged. What if you used these constantly for 10-12 hours such as with hearing aids? Batteries for these devices typically only last hours. Using them all day you would need to recharge them several times.
Hearing instruments are small and so are the batteries. This leaves little room for an electrical charge. The estimated battery life depends on your hearing aids and the length of time you wear them. Further, using a hearing aid streamer or other accessory places an even bigger demand for power on the battery.
Some hearing instruments use rechargeable batteries. While this sounds like a good solution, there are some “bugs” in how rechargeable batteries work in hearing devices. Often those who have tried rechargeable switch to disposable batteries.
Talk to your audiologist about battery life. He/she will let you know what to expect in battery life. Further, hearing instruments will require a certain size battery, but not all batteries will work the same. Hearing aid manufacturers typically recommend a specific brand of battery to use with their devices. Find out what brand battery works best with your hearing instruments. Using the recommended brand will give you the best possible battery life.
Life sounds great! Enjoy every moment!
