Caring For Your Hearing Aids
Hearing Aids Require Daily Care to Ensure They Perform Well for Years to Come.
But do not worry, it only takes a few moments out of your day to adequately maintain them. For your reference, read the quick tips below to gain a better understanding of how to care for these incredible devices:
Hearing Aid Batteries
Imagine how much power it takes to process all the sounds around you 24/7 and you will begin to understand how crucial battery power is to your hearing aids. Depending on your specific model, you may find that you use a fair amount of batteries each month, but every situation will be different. Some styles offer rechargeable options, giving you the convenience of never having to worry about changing your device’s batteries again.
Yet in most cases, you can expect to change your hearing aid batteries every 5 to 21 days depending on the style, battery size, and how frequently you use your devices. To help extend your battery life, try the following options:
Never place batteries in your mouth. If a battery is swallowed, call the battery ingestion hotline printed on the back of each pack of batteries immediately.
Rechargeable Hearing Aids
Hearing aids are small and the batteries that power them are very small. If you have limited vision or poor dexterity (such as arthritis in your fingers), you may find changing the small batteries a challenge. Many hearing aid users choose rechargeable hearing aids as a more user-friendly option.
Rechargeable hearing aids typically offer a full day of charge when you charge them overnight – pop it on the charger before you go to bed and you will have a full power charge when you wake up in the morning.
Rechargeable hearing aids allow users to unchain themselves from the hassles of batteries and enjoy a long-lasting rechargeable hearing aid. With a rechargeable hearing aid, you will have an easier device to use with less stress. You will not have to remember to take disposable batteries with you just in case your batteries die while you are out. Your rechargeable battery lasts a long time and, for some types, lasts the life of the hearing aid.
