What rechargeable hearing aid is right for me?
Small and discreet, we have some of the best rechargeable hearing aids on the market, providing a natural hearing experience and all without having to fiddle with batteries.
Rechargeable hearing aids come with a case that you put them in at night and they charge up while you sleep, ready to pop them in for the morning birdsong. Some of our models even have a rechargeable case so that you can charge your hearing aids on the go when it’s convenient.
These rechargeable hearing aids are packed with technology. A common feature is an ability to provide clear speech in even the noisiest of environments. Some models can link to your smartphone for added controls and, in some cases, stream music or sound directly from your TV into your hearing aids.

Which apps are compatible with my hearing aids?
Hearing aid apps are compatible with most Bluetooth hearing aids, but it's worth checking on the app website or app store before making a purchase or download. If you have any other questions or issues connecting your hearing aids to an app, we recommend asking your audiologist for some help.
How long do hearing aid batteries last?
Hearing aids are smart pieces of tech which require quite a lot of power to do what they do. In our digital hearing aid range, you’ll find ones that use disposable batteries and ones that are rechargeable. Depending on your lifestyle and the brand you choose, you may find one type of battery is preferable over the other.
Battery hearing aids
Battery hearing aids come in a wide variety of styles from behind-the-ear to completely-in-the-canal ‘invisible’ versions; they use small, round, zinc batteries.
The life of a hearing aid battery is dependent on its size and how much work it has to do. For a person who wears their hearing aids all day every day (approximately 14 hours per day) you can expect a battery to last between five and 14 days depending on the battery size.
There are many factors that will determine the life of a hearing aid battery. Perhaps the most important factors are:
- Your degree of hearing loss - the worse your hearing, the more amplification the hearing aids must produce and therefore the shorter the battery life.
- How often you use hearing aid accessories - if you use Bluetooth® streaming on a regular basis (remote control, telephones, television, etc) your battery life will be considerably shorter.
To make your hearing aid batteries last as long as possible, don’t forget to turn them off when you’re not wearing them overnight. Remember, it’s important to make sure these batteries are kept away from children and pets (they are dangerous if swallowed) and are recycled properly when they’re finished.
Rechargeable batteries for hearing aids
Our rechargeable hearing aids are available in behind-the-ear or receiver-in-the-ear models. Thanks to developments in technology around their lithium ion batteries, they are still small, discreet and offer great long-lasting performance.
Today’s rechargeable batteries hold their charge for most of the day and can therefore be charged up at night – most styles come with their own charging case, some of which hold a residual charge and can be used on the go offering two to three days’ charge.
