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
