Phonak rechargeable battery technology
Mobile phones, electric shavers, tablets: we use these devices all the time, every day, and recharging them has long become a part of our daily routine.
Conventional rechargeable batteries used in hearing aids have not been able to deliver enough power to make it through an entire day. This is no longer the case.
The Phonak Audéo™ B-R is the first ever rechargeable hearing aid, featuring built-in lithium-ion battery technology and offering valuable benefits:
- 24 hours of hearing with one simple charge
- Quickest charging, longest lasting rechargeable hearing aid to date
- 40% more power than conventional rechargeable batteries
- No more hassles of disposable batteries
Studies and findings
In the past, rechargeable technology has had limited success in the hearing aid industry, but recent technological advancements, specifically in the Lithium-ion battery found in Phonak rechargeable hearings aids, result in numerous benefits.
A pre-launch field trial in France and the US showed that 9 out of 10 hearing care professionals would recommend our rechargeable technology.
