Most hearing aids have a 7-10 day battery life based on 12-16 hours of use per day (without Bluetooth streaming). Your actual battery life depends on the battery size, how many hours a day you use your devices, your hearing needs and how you use them. For example, if you stream phone calls, work in a noisy office, or use a TV accessory, your hearing aids will use more power. When you compare
hearing aid battery life to the battery life of other electronic devices you can see how energy efficient they really are.
For example, we typically, charge our cellphones or tablets daily. We would need to charge them more often if we used then continuously for 12-15 hours per day. If you find running out of batteries or having the batteries run out at an inconvenient time, look into rechargeable hearing aids. Rechargeable hearing aids are placed in a charging case at night, in the morning you have 24 hours of wearing time.
Since you don’t have to change a battery, there is less hassle. This can be significant for those with dexterity problems who find changing batteries difficult. Since the first rechargeable hearing aid in 2017, several more devices have been developed offering more and more options. Hear Well Live Well.
