Q: Are rechargeable hearing aids more convenient than traditional hearing aids?
A: For most people, yes. All hearing aids are powered by a battery. Traditional hearing aid batteries last about a week before they need to be replaced. For some people, changing the batteries is not a big deal. However, people with vision, dexterity, or memory problems could have difficulties performing (or remembering to perform) these tasks. With rechargeable hearing aids, you simply place the devices in their charger at night (or whenever they need a charge), and you don’t need to perform these tasks or keep a supply of batteries on hand.
