One exciting new advancement in hearing aid technology that is improving patient satisfaction for ease of use is the availability of rechargeable hearing aids. These rechargeable hearing aids eliminate the need for patients to change disposable batteries at home and instead place their devices on a docking station every night to charge. The docking station is a small unit that is plugged into the wall and has two slots available to place the hearing aids in to start charging. It is recommended to charge the devices every night. Rechargeable hearing aids are ideal for individuals who have dexterity issues and have difficulty manipulating and inserting the conventional small disposable batteries. They are also great for people who want the convenience of not having to worry about when their battery will go out during the day and have the peace of mind to know their battery will last them all day. Rechargeable devices eliminate the waste of disposable batteries and reduce the cost of purchasing disposable batteries long term.
