Some advantages of rechargeable hearing aids include:

  • Up to 24 hours of use on a single charge
  • A decent battery life of up to four to five years
  • No need to frequently purchase and replace hearing aid batteries
  • Fewer small parts to handle, making them a better option for people with dexterity issues or low vision

  • May cost more than other types of hearing aids

How do rechargeable hearing aids work?

Rechargeable hearing aids work in much the same way as a standard hearing aid but instead of being powered by disposable batteries they feature an internal battery that can be recharged when needed.
