The Best Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Are you tired of dealing with tiny hearing aid batteries? Modern, rechargeable hearing aids are growing in popularity – and for good reasons. Rechargeables are more energy-efficient, environmentally friendlier, easier to handle for people with dexterity issues, better to operate in colder weather, and easier on your wallet. Just place your hearing aids in the charging station when you go to bed, and they will be ready to use when you wake up in the morning. If you spend all day streaming phone calls and music, you might need a quick half-hour charging boost to make it through the day. But for most people, your nightly charge will give you enough energy to last all day and you’ll never have to fumble around with those tiny batteries again. 

In the article, we’ll explore five of the best battery-free and rechargeable hearing aids. If you’re not familiar with how easy it is to use rechargeable hearing aids, here is a quick how-to video from our top rechargeable, Signia’s Pure Charge&Go.

The hearing aids start charging automatically when you put them in and turn on automatically as soon as you take them out. True to its name, Pure Charge&Go gives you the freedom to go about your day with fully-powered hearing aids without worrying about carrying around extra batteries.

Some additional features of the Pure Charge&Go include wireless Bluetooth streaming, smartphone app control, and Own Voice Processing (OVP) which allows one’s voice to sound more natural.

The Marvel also uses a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which according to Phonak, has been tested to last 6 years. On a full charge, it offers 24 hours of battery life and 16 hours with streaming. The charging case is also a drying kit and protective hard case all-in-one. Additional features of the Marvel include Bluetooth wireless streaming, hands-free phone calls, smartphone app control, and AutoSenseOS 3.0 which helps the devices adapt to your environment automatically.

3. Oticon Opn S

In order to get the maximum benefits of the Opn S, Oticon created a rechargeable solution. Its lithium-ion battery technology ensures you get a full day of hearing, including streaming from your favorite devices. Just plug the charger to a power source, insert the hearing aids, and let them charge.

4. Starkey Livio Ai

The Livio AI comes is one of the few devices that offer both wired and wireless charging. The portable charger holds enough charge to provide portable charging three times without plugging into the wall. Keep in mind that the charger itself needs to be charged, so plug it into the wall first and let it charge for a few hours. Once the charger is fully charged, you can take it with you. You can expect 24 hours of battery life on just one charge! In addition, this device provides outstanding sound quality along with the ability to track your mental and physical health.

And just like Starkey’s Livio AI, the charging case is portable. Just plug it into the wall and let it charge for a bit. The LED lights will indicate when the charger is ready to be unplugged. Once ready, the portable charging case will be able to provide three full charges of power for the hearing aids. The case itself is sleek and compact, which means it will fit right into your pocket or handbag. Aside from being rechargeable, LiNX Quattro delivers crisp and distortion-free sound, better clarity in noisy environments, and direct wireless streaming from your smart devices to your hearing aids.
