Why should I be thinking of rechargeable hearing aids for all of my patients?
Rechargeable hearing aids are really the way of the future. The battery technology has evolved significantly over the past decade, allowing us to create devices that provide incredible sound quality with batteries that last for a full day on a single charge. In fact, patients have 27% higher satisfaction with rechargeable hearing aids than with non-rechargeable devices.1
"Full day" on a single charge - what does that actually mean?
For patients who simply want to hear better, Phonak rechargeable hearing aids are designed to last for 24 hours without any audio/media streaming. Our innovation doesn’t stop there! Our data analysis shows that patients wear their hearing aids, on average, for 16 hours a day. Phonak rechargeable hearing aids will provide 16 hours of battery life that includes 4 hours of Bluetooth® Classic streaming (i.e. phone calls catching up with grandchildren) and also 4 hours of streaming through our TV Connector (i.e. binge watching the latest episodes of Bridgerton).
Benefits over disposable battery products
With Phonak rechargeable hearing aids, you can unlock additional features and functions for your patients. For example, you can provide access to health tracking data such as heart rate, steps and more with Audéo Fit rechargeable devices. Audéo Life rechargeable devices are waterproof and sweatproof. ActiveVent receivers, only compatible with Phonak rechargeable RICs, adapt to different hearing environments. Plus, there are features such as Motion Sensor Hearing – knowing when you’re on the move and adjusting beamforming accordingly – and Tap Control – allowing patients to pause or activate functions with a tap of the ear – that are only available on Phonak rechargeable hearing aids.
Rechargeable hearing aids are better for the environment
On average, a pair of hearing aids uses over 800 disposable batteries. Most of the time these end up in the trash and ultimately in landfills. Our lithium-ion rechargeable batteries are engineered to last up to 6 years, vastly reducing the waste produced.
Phonak rechargeable devices are more reliable
With the unique design of rechargeable products, including no battery door which is often a source of moisture and corrosion, Phonak rechargeable devices have been found to be more reliable. We’ve analyzed our newest Audéo Paradise product reliability over the past 18 months, and compared to its predecessor Audéo Marvel, we saw an improvement in reliability of 37%. Give your patients extra peace of mind by choosing a rechargeable product from the first manufacturer to introduce lithium-ion rechargeable battery technology into the hearing aid industry!
