“Changing to lithium ion rechargeable digital hearing aids is going to be great. I never liked changing batteries so often, sometimes every 5-6 days. She laughed and said, I’m going to miss changing batteries.” Quickly she said “nope, I won’t”.
The feeling in her hands has lessened, and became more numb, thus making it rather difficult to change batteries on a weekly basis. This has been an on going issue. Not having to do this is a great thing! It takes just 1-2 hours a night to fully charge the lithium ion batteries. The hearing aids turn off when placed in the charger and when removed turn on automatically. Rechargeable hearing aids have been very helpful to so many. Not to mention, no more need to have to purchase batteries.
