Solving the All-Day Power Problem

The recent product innovations have changed the picture completely. Now, rechargeable hearing aids feature:

  • A full day of use: The new products provide around 24 hours of use time.
  • Familiar form factors: They provide daylong power in the same familiar hearing aid form factor.
  • Less hassle: Many users complain about having to constantly replace the small disposable batteries in their hearing aids. Some rechargeable batteries wont need to be replaced for 3-5 years.

The new rechargeable hearing aid models come from two of the “Big Six” manufacturers of premium hearing aids. Phonak’s Audéo B-R hearing aids and the Sivantos Signia Cellion primax hearing aids reportedly last 24 hours on a full charge. Each integrates a lithium-ion rechargeable battery into the hearing aid’s sealed body, and both come with a simple charging station.

Airplanes and ear pain:  Why it happens and what you can do
So what really happens to ears when we fly? It all comes down to air pressure. Normally the air pressure inside the inner ear and the air pressure outside are essentially the same, or at least not different enough to cause any trouble. Even if you were to hike to the top of a tall mountain, the slow speed of your ascent would allow time for the pressure to equalize along the way. A problem only occurs when the change in altitude is so rapid, like it is in air travel, that the pressure inside the inner ear and the air pressure outside don’t have time to equalize.
