Rechargeable System for Hearing Aids at International Hearing Society Convention & Expo

Camarillo, CA – September 1st, 2016 — ZPower, the world’s only developer of rechargeable, silver-zinc  microbatteries, will feature its rechargeable system for hearing aids at the upcoming International Hearing Society Convention & Expo, which takes place September 8th – 10th in Chicago, IL.  The International Hearing Society (IHS), which hosts the convention, is a membership association that represents over 3000 hearing healthcare professionals worldwide. IHS members are engaged in the practice of testing human hearing and selecting, fitting and dispensing hearing instruments and counseling patients. ZPower will exhibit in Booth #307.

According to a recent study of over 500 consumers, 70% of hearing aid wearers want rechargeable hearing aids. However there are some specific criteria that need to be met in order for a rechargeable hearing aid to have real value to the wearer. In other words, not just any rechargeable hearing aid will do.

Hearing aid wearers ranked a full day of power on a single charge to be one of the most important attributes of rechargeable batteries. However, hearing aid wearers made it clear they want to have options. In the case where the battery does not last all-day, or they forgot to charge, 80% said they would prefer to use a disposable battery in order to regain power instantly over charging their rechargeable system for a minimum of 30 minutes. One respondent made the following comment to support this opinion: “I don’t have time to wait around for the battery to recharge – especially at work.” Another respondent said, “No one wants to put their life on hold for any length of time so a battery can charge.”

After reviewing the results of this recent Hearing Tracker survey, ZPower is pleased to report that The ZPower Rechargeable System for Hearing Aids is in line with the needs of the majority of hearing aid wearers. The ZPower System is the only rechargeable solution that can provide all day power on a single charge with a battery small enough to be used in today’s most advanced hearing aids. Additionally, ZPower’s silver-zinc batteries are 100% recyclable and are interchangeable with zinc air disposable batteries.
