Lithium-ion battery is the preferred technology in many major industries: From consumer electronics to electric cars, and more.

Why lithium-ion?

Compared with traditional battery technology, lithium-ion batteries deliver:

  • Longer daily runtime,
  • Longer overall lifetime,
  • Shorter charging time (together with a fast charging option), and
  • Higher convenience for the hearing aid wearer.

Battery lifetime

The runtime of all lithium-ion rechargeable batteries reduces over time. Under normal operating conditions, the battery will retain at least 80% of its initial capacity after 2 years of use. Please note that battery performance will vary depending on individual usage patterns and environmental conditions.

Will my lithium-ion battery last longer if I don’t charge my hearing aids every night and wait for a complete discharge before charging?

Deep-discharge cycles are not required for lithium-ion batteries. The best practice is to charge your hearing aids every night and unplug your charger while not charging.

Does the battery life become shorter if I use the fast charging option very frequently?

No. Thanks to our specially developed charging method, fast charging does not have any negative effect on the battery life of your hearing aids.

Is it safe to travel on an airplane with a lithium-ion rechargeable hearing aid?
