The professional’s guide to Widex hearing aid chargers and batteries

Navigating the array of hearing aid batteries and charging solutions can sometimes feel overwhelming for your clients. As a hearing care professional, you can help clients make well-informed choices.

Widex offers many hearing aid power options, from traditional zinc-air batteries to modern, state-of-the-art rechargeable hearing aids and chargers. Here's a comprehensive guide to help your clients choose the right power solutions for their hearing aids.

The future is rechargeable

Widex's rechargeable hearing aids come with compact, lightweight, and aesthetically pleasing chargers. Utilizing wireless power transfer technology, these hearing aid chargers offer hassle-free charging without the need to clean contacts or align the hearing aids. Simply dropping the hearing aids into the charging wells initiates the charging process.

Why consider going rechargeable?

For some clients, the benefits of rechargeable hearing aids may outweigh those of traditional batteries. Here are some compelling reasons that may convince clients to go the rechargeable route:

  • Convenience - No more fumbling with tiny hearing aid batteries or worrying about running out of power during an important event.
  • Eco-friendly - Switching to rechargeable hearing aids can significantly reduce the number of disposable batteries ending up in landfills.
  • Cost-effective - While the initial cost may be higher, rechargeable hearing aids can be more cost-effective in the long run as they eliminate the recurring expense of replacement batteries.
  • Simplicity - Rechargeable hearing aids are user-friendly. Simply drop them into the charging well, and they're ready for another day of use.

Charging specifics

Depending on the fitting and streaming time, a full 4-hour charge provides between 16 and 29 hours of hearing aid use. A quick 30-minute charge can deliver 4 hours of use for urgent situations.

Widex standard charger

The Widex standard charger is an excellent choice for day-to-day hearing aid charging needs. It's compact enough to be carried anywhere and features LED light indicators to show charging status.

Widex Charge n Clean

Widex offers the Charge n Clean for those seeking a comprehensive solution. This 3-in-1 device not only charges the hearing aids but also includes a cleaning function. It has the following features:

  • 4-hour charge for full-day use
  • 30-minute charge for 4-hour hearing aid use
  • UV-C LED treatment eliminates up to 99.99% of bacteria, yeast, and viruses

Your guidance is invaluable in helping clients choose the best power solution for their hearing aids, whether they prefer the tried-and-true zinc air hearing aid batteries or the modern convenience of rechargeable devices.

With various choices from Widex, your clients can find a hearing aid power solution that seamlessly integrates into their lifestyles, ensuring a top-quality hearing experience.

The classic choice: Zinc-air batteries

Zinc-air batteries offer prolonged power, allowing clients to enjoy seamless hearing aid functionality. Here are a few reasons why your clients might choose a hearing aid with zinc air batteries over rechargeable hearing aids:

  • No daily recharging required – Zinc-air hearing aid batteries eliminate the need for daily recharging, offering clients the freedom to go about their day without worrying about finding a power source.
  • Always ready to use - With zinc-air batteries, clients don't have to wait for their hearing aids to recharge. This is particularly beneficial in scenarios where immediate use is essential.
  • Lower upfront cost - Hearing aids that use zinc-air batteries are generally more affordable than rechargeable models.
  • Easier to travel with - Finding a place to recharge hearing aids may not always be convenient.
  • Long shelf life - Zinc-air batteries have a longer shelf life than rechargeable batteries. This allows clients to stock up and have a reliable power source readily available when needed.
  • Emergency preparedness - In situations where power may be unavailable—like during storms or in remote locations—zinc air batteries ensure that clients are never without hearing aid functionality.

Types of zinc air batteries

Widex hearing aids commonly utilize zinc-air batteries, available in various sizes and color codes:

  • Size 10: Yellow
  • Size 13: Orange
  • Size 312: Brown
  • Size 675: Blue

Storing and using batteries

The longevity of zinc air hearing aid batteries can be maximized by:

  • Keeping them sealed until needed
  • Storing in a cool, dry place
  • Allowing the hearing aid battery to 'breathe' for 60 seconds before placing it in the hearing aid
