Why Rechargeable Hearing Aids Are The Future For The Hearing Impaired

Posted on: 29 October 2019

Approximately 14.5% of the Australian population has some form of hearing loss which makes it one of the most common chronic problems affecting the entire country. This number is also only expected to get higher as people live longer and therefore the elderly population increases. Due to this, Australia has been involved with hearing aids for a long time, and one of the largest hearing aid companies in the world was founded in Sydney. If you are looking towards the future and are considering what type of hearing aid to get, then there is one clear choice: rechargeable hearing aids.

Why Rechargeable Hearing Aids?

Rechargeable hearing aids have been around for a long time, but in recent years, they have resurged in popularity because of advancements in rechargeable hearing aid batteries. These new batteries now last for longer with more powerful batteries than ever before. Rechargeable hearing aids allow you to stop buying batteries every other week and mean there is very little you need to do to take care of your hearing aids between uses. Everything you need for your hearing aids can be kept on your bedside table, and the batteries can last for years, if not longer.

Don't Rechargeable Batteries Die After A Few Hours?

In previous years rechargeable hearing aids were not reliable because the battery powering them was weak. Battery technology in the 1990s and the 2000s is nowhere near the level of today's hearing aid batteries, which gives them a huge advantage. If you experimented with rechargeable hearing aids in the past, you may be hesitant to try them again, but all it takes is a quick visit to your local doctor to ask for information to convince you that they're worth trying again. As you get older, you also want to reduce the number of chores you have to remember, and buying new batteries all the time can be a pain.

How Do I Take Care Of Them?

Rechargeable hearing aid batteries can simply be attached to their charger, which is in turn connected to a power outlet. Often, people buy multiple pairs of rechargeable hearing aid batteries so that if they forget to charge one pair they have a backup pair. When you are through using your rechargeable hearing aids for the day, you can place them in the charger, and by the morning, they will be ready for use again. It really is that simple.

Health and Medical: Looking After The Heart and Other Organs

Howdy! My name is Jen and this is my new blog. While I am not a medical professional, I do have a good understanding of various medical conditions. I gained this understanding when my son Ben was in and out of the hospital. He was born with a weak heart which meant that he has had to have regular medical check-ups and appointments every few months. He is now 21 years old and he has just had surgery to repair his damaged heart. I decided to start this blog so I could offer advice on various health and medical topics.
