Are Livio AI or Livio R available in a CROS System?
The Livio AI and Livio rechargeable devices are also CROS compatible. CROS/BiCROS is available in Livio AI 2400, as well as in Livio 2400, 2000 and 1600 technology. We're using our NFMI radio for the CROS functionality and with a CROS/BiCROS system rechargeable, we expect about 14 hours of life. That will get most CROS/BiCROS users through the day. The Turbo Charger might be ideal for your heavy BiCROS user, for someone who wears the hearing aids longer than 14 hours a day. The Turbo Charger might also benefit people who stream a lot, above and beyond just the transmitter streaming (e.g., talking on the phone, using an accessory, etc.). As they get to the last few hours of the day of using their hearing aids, it would be ideal for them to plug into the Mini Turbo Charger to get them through to the end of the day. That's something to consider as you're talking to your BiCROS users.
With the CROS system, we do also have a auto shutdown for the transmitter. This is a battery saving functionality. If the transmitter is out of range of the receiver for more than 30 minutes, the transmitter will shut itself down. There are occasions where people take off their transmitter and disconnect from their receiver. If they leave it sitting there and disconnected for longer than 30 minutes, the transmitter is going to shut down so that it's not draining the battery. All you have to do to power it back on is tap on or press the user control and it'll reconnect to the receiver.
