If your rechargeable hearing aid doesn’t have a battery door, it contains a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. These batteries take about 3-4 hours to fully charge and will power your hearing aids for about 24 hours per charge. The battery itself should last for the entire life of the hearing aid, typically 4-5 years.
Suitable for many hearing aid types, each pack of rechargeable hearing aid batteries comes with two cells, are mercury-free, environmentally friendly, and can be recharged within two hours. During its lifecycle, each rechargeable hearing aid battery has the potential to replace up to 57 standard hearing aid batteries.
Place the hearing aids in the charging ports so the LEDs (light) on the hearing aids face the same way as the LED (light) on the charger. Make sure the hearing aids starts charging (The LED on each hearing aid is solid red). If the hearing aids are positioned incorrectly, they will not be charged.
If the battery is fully drained, it takes approximately three hours to fully charge your hearing aids.
When charging a lithium-ion battery, it fills up more quickly at the beginning. So after 30 minutes, the battery will be 25% charged, and after one hour the battery will be at 50% capacity.
The charger is supported by a power plug for power socket. It is possible to power the charger from other sources with a USB port. Ensure that the power source is USB 2.0 compliant, minimum 500mA output. Examples of sources: Power bank, PC, Car. Always control charging starts up to make sure the power source delivers sufficient output for your charger.

Lithium-ion batteries are incredibly popular these days. You can find them in laptops, PDAs, cell phones and iPods. They’re so common because, pound for pound, they’re some of the most energetic rechargeable batteries available.
Lithium-ion batteries have also been in the news lately. That’s because these batteries have the ability to burst into flames occasionally. It’s not very common — just two or three battery packs per million have a problem — but when it happens, it’s extreme. In some situations, the failure rate can rise, and when that happens you end up with a worldwide battery recall that can cost manufacturers millions of dollars.
The value of a rechargeable battery system is comparable to the value of 100 traditional hearing aid batteries. A person who needs hearing aids in both ears will go through about 100 disposable batteries each year, which could cost between $100 and $150.
