Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Wouldn’t it be great if instead of replacing batteries every week in hearing devices, there were rechargeable hearing aids ?  Well, that is exactly what is available today.

While hearing aid technology markets advances and exciting new features and capabilities every year that more often than fall short of expectations, there has been innovation in one area, and that’s rechargeable hearing aids. If not having to buy disposable batteries frequently and handling those tiny batteries each day sounds appealing, rechargeable hearing aids might be just what you need.

ZPower Rechargeable System

In the last few years, a company named ZPower is a game-changing creator of the ZPower Rechargeable System. This innovative and award-winning system turns compatible hearing aids into rechargeable hearing aids. The system can be ordered at the time of a new hearing aid purchase or retrofit on existing devices. This system is ideal to those individuals who struggle with the following pitfalls with traditional hearing device batteries:

  • Dexterity issues
  • Vision loss
  • Environmentally conscious and want to reduce the number of disposable batteries that end up in landfills.
  • Inconvenient to repeatedly purchase batteries every several months

Additionally, rechargeable hearing aids are convenient, easy to use and environmentally-friendly.

Cost

While rechargeable hearing aids offers benefits, the downside is that the ZPower rechargeable hearing aid system is not exactly cheap.  The cost of the unit is approximately $200-$300, and the rechargeable battery, which needs to be replaced every year, is approximately $50 per hearing device. Consumers can purchase traditional hearing aid batteries for as little as 25 cents apiece, resulting in an approximate annual cost of  only $25 per hearing device.
