The newest generation of rechargeable hearing aids means longer battery life and a full day of use with no worries. Coweta Hearing Center can help you navigate through all your options and pick the hearing aids that are best suited for your lifestyle and needs.
The newest rechargeable hearing aids provide 24 hours of use time and they look the same as the models that have changeable batteries. Many hearing aid users, especially those who may have mobility and dexterity issues have complained about changing the small disposable batteries in hearing aid. The rechargeable option means you just put them on a charging unit and they are ready to use the next morning. We carry models from our manufacturers. They include:
