Frequently asked questions about rechargeable hearing aids
How many hours does it take to recharge rechargeable hearing aids?
If the battery is completely drained, then the average charging time is around:
3-4 hours to reach full charge¹
1 hour to reach 50% charge
1/2 hour to reach 25% charge
Note that the loading time can depend on the age of the battery.
How do I know when the hearing aids are fully recharged?
The recharging process stops automatically when the battery is fully charged. On most hearing aids, the hearing aid has a small light that turns green when the battery is recharged.
How do I know when my battery needs to be recharged?
When the rechargeable hearing aid batteries are almost empty, the hearing aids send out a signal, which typically consists of three short beeps.
The signal indicates that there are about 2 hours of usage left before the hearing aids stop working. The warning sound is repeated every 30 min.
How long does my battery last before it needs to be recharged?
If your battery is fully charged, you can expect to wear your hearing aids all day.¹ However, if your Bluetooth® hearing aids stream sound from another electronic device (such as the TV or your computer) for more than 8 hours, then you might have to recharge your hearing aids sooner.
How much do rechargeable hearing aids cost?
Hearing aid prices vary by make and model. Your hearing care provider can give you the latest information and explain more about hearing aid costs.
