Rechargeable hearing aids have stormed the market since their release and for good reason. They are great option for those looking for more convenience and to reduce their hearing aid maintenance, particularly where limited dexterity or the frequency of battery changing is a concern.
These discreet devices couple all the existing features of current hearing aid technology and are available from all UK market leading manufacturers.
What are rechargeable hearing aids? How do they work?
All hearing aids take batteries, there’s no getting away from this. High tech hearing aids with advanced technology require a substantial amount of power from their battery, combined with the desire for hearing aids to be small and discreet the battery life of a standard none-rechargeable battery will last between 2-14 days depending on wear.
Enter rechargeable. Depending on your lifestyle a rechargeable version of your device involves placing your hearing aid on a charging dock (usually when the aid isn’t being worn – we suggest overnight) instead of replacing none re-chargeable batteries.
At Integrate Hearing we only offer the best Lithium-ion rechargeable hearing aids with a built-in battery as well as a range of hearing aid charging kits and rechargeable travel cases suitable to your devices.

Can Lithium-ion rechargeable hearing aids take normal batteries?
Due to the Lithium-ion battery being in-built standard size 10/312/13/675 batteries cannot be used in replacement. These hearing aids do not have the standard removable hearing aid battery draw. If the concern is that you may forget to charge your battery do not worry, travel chargers are available and even as little as a 30-minute charge will get you hours of wear.
What if I forget to put my rechargeable hearing aids on charge? How long will it last?
These clever devices are designed to by manufacturers to charge at rapid speed. In most cases only taking a few hours to reach full charge. Flashing light indicators help you stay in the know about how much battery is in your hearing aid whilst charging and warning beeps presented to the wearer
indicate if the battery is running low and in need of charge.
What factors affect my battery life?
How often you use your hearing aid, the degree of your hearing loss, the features your hearing aid needs to use and the amount of streaming you may do (through Bluetooth) will determine the length of time your battery will last. This varies from person to person and situation to situation.
Making sure your devices are switched off when not being worn (such as at night) is another important factor in getting the full use of your hearing aid battery.
