Camarillo, Calif. (February 10, 2016) – ZPower is thrilled to announce a new partnership with AuDNet, Inc., a group purchasing organization whose mission is to support and sustain the practice of audiology in all its forms through collective buying power. With this goal in mind, ZPower is pleased to offer the Rechargeable System for Hearing Aids to AuDNet’s members at a substantial discount off regular wholesale pricing. Partnering with AuDNet will help introduce ZPower’s groundbreaking product to more patients, providing them the opportunity to never change a hearing aid battery again.
“Today’s hearing aids provide more acoustic parameters and connectivity than ever,” said Sara Sable-Antry, vice president of sales and marketing for ZPower. “However, these advancements come with the cost of patient frustration with disposable battery life. We know that patients today want rechargeability, but until now, the availability of rechargeable technology for hearing aids was very limited. I am proud to say that ZPower has changed that.”
David Smriga, president of AuDNet, Inc., is equally enthusiastic. “ZPower is bringing an innovative and valuable new technology to the market, a technology that will benefit a lot of people using hearing instruments to improve their communication quality of life. Our organization is excited to help ZPower get this technology into our member practices as affordably as possible.”
Upgrading hearing aids to the ZPower Rechargeable System is a quick and easy process. The hearing care provider just replaces the original hearing aid battery door with the ZPower rechargeable battery door and then installs the ZPower battery. The ZPower Rechargeable System for Hearing Aids offers a full day of continuous power, charges overnight in the hearing aids, takes the place of an estimated 200 disposable batteries, and lasts a full year. The ZPower hearing aid battery is replaced once every year by a hearing care professional, so the patient never has to touch a hearing aid battery again.
