What Makes Rechargeable Hearing Aid Models Better?
They are easier to use, safer for children and pets, and better for the environment. These new, state-of-the-art rechargeable hearing aids don’t need a new battery every few days or weeks. The lithium ion battery models provided at Michigan Avenue Hearing Health can hold a charge for up to 30 hours. And when the devices start to lose power, they can be plugged into a docking station for a full recharge. Recharging typically takes a few hours, so most users plug them in when they go to bed. These new models are safer than conventional hearing aids because the small zinc-air metal batteries can not get lost on a carpet or in a couch where children or pets might find them and accidentally swallow or choke. Hearing aid batteries are dangerous if swallowed. According to the National Capital Poison Control Center, more than 3,500 Americans of all ages swallow button batteries every year. If this happens to a person or pet in your home, seek medical attention immediately and call the National Battery Ingestion Hotline: 800-498-8666.
