Question

How is ZPower 2nd generation for Widex different?

Answer

The Second Generation ZPower has been re-designed and enhanced for Widex solutions in many significant ways.  This includes a stronger battery spring to optimize the battery contact to ensure short- and long-term battery life.  Another improvement is within the new battery door electronics. This new re-design will optimize power delivery and improve long-term battery life. In addition, the battery door is more robust with a 100% increase in the plastics of the door and better moisture resistance on the contacts and circuit. Lastly, an improved charger software has been developed to improve daily battery charge.  

A press release on Widex's ZPower second generation can be found here. To learn more, please visit Widex or the Widex Partners Page on AudiologyOnline.
