The Evolution of Hearing Aid Batteries
The way hearing aids are powered has changed a lot over the years. For decades, zinc-air batteries were how most all hearing aids were powered. This type of battery isn’t rechargeable and has to be replaced usually about once a week when used in hearing aids. The main sizes of zinc-air batteries for powering hearing aids are sizes 10, 13, 312, and 675. Even the largest of these batteries is small and can be difficult to maneuver – especially for people with dexterity issues.
The First Rechargeable Hearing Aids – ZPower Silver-Zinc Batteries
In the early-2010s, ZPower introduced the first rechargeable hearing aid battery. For several years this battery was on the cutting edge of hearing aid technology. It changed the game for hearing aid users! No more fiddling with those tiny hearing aid batteries at least once a week. All you had to do was put the battery in one time and then charge it every night to get a full day’s use. These ZPower batteries have a lifespan of about one year.
Lithium-ion Rechargeable Hearing Aid Batteries
However, technology is always changing. In 2016, a new kind of hearing aid battery hit the market – lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. Lithium-ion batteries can hold a charge longer than silver-zinc batteries and have now become the norm for rechargeable hearing aids.
Because lithium-ion batteries are the latest technology, most manufacturers no longer sell ZPower Silver-Zinc Batteries. That’s why we added these ZPower batteries to our online store! If you have rechargeable hearing aids that aren’t the latest model, they might have those silver-zinc batteries and they could die for good one day. Hearing Group is your source for ZPower rechargeable replacement batteries.
Hearing Aid Compatibility
ZPower 312 Rechargeable Hearing Aid Batteries are compatible with brands like Unitron, Starkey, Oticon, Resound, Widex, Bernafon, Signia, NuEar, Starkey, and Sonic. These batteries must be recharged nightly for a day of hearing aid use. They must charge 24-48 hours before the first use. These batteries on our site are brand new and made by ZPower.
Benefits of Rechargeable Hearing Aids
Rechargeable batteries are much more convenient than disposable batteries. With rechargeable batteries, all you have to do is place your hearing aids in a charger each evening, and they will last you throughout the next day. You don’t have to change the batteries on a weekly (or sometimes even more often) basis, you just plug the hearing aids into the charger when you go to bed, take them off the next morning, put them in your ears, and away you go.
If you have any kind of numbness in your fingers, arthritis, or other dexterity issues, the rechargeable batteries are very nice because you don’t have to worry about opening and closing the battery door and messing with those tiny hearing aid batteries. Another great thing about rechargeable batteries is that you only have to buy the battery one time. Your overall cost is going to be less with the rechargeable hearing aids than with disposable batteries.
Rechargeable batteries are so simple, will save you money in the long run, and just overall easier to maintain. To learn more about the latest rechargeable hearing aid technology, check out our video below.
