Phonak-FB807d-FB-Audeo-B-R-300x300Gone are the days when you had to remember to take spare hearing aid batteries with you everywhere you went.

With traditional batteries running out of power every few days, rechargeable hearing aids are becoming increasingly popular due to their convenience. Not only do they last longer, they are more dependable and run circles around typical batteries in the environmental category due to less landfill waste.

Physicians Hearing Center in Dothan, Alabama is pleased to offer rechargeable hearing aids to our customers.

Types of Batteries

Rechargeable devices fit into one of two categories:

Lithium-ion: These batteries, similar to those used in cellphones, are completely sealed within the hearing aid. These batteries can typically be recharged for three to five years before needing replacement.

Silver-Zinc: Silver-zinc rechargeable batteries can be replaced with regular hearing aid batteries if you’re without power. These batteries typically need to be replaced after a year’s worth of charging.
