ZPower to Highlight Its Built-in Rechargeable Battery Technology at Audiology Now 2017

ZPower has collaborated with multiple hearing aid manufacturers to bring more rechargeable hearing aids to market in 2017

ZPower, the world’s only developer of rechargeable, silver-zinc microbatteries, will feature its built-in rechargeable battery technology at AudiologyNOW! 2017, April 5–7 in Indianapolis, Ind. AudiologyNOW! is hosted by the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) and is the world’s largest gathering of audiologists. This annual meeting provides participants the opportunity to attend four days of educational sessions, explore the latest in hearing technology and network with colleagues from around the world. ZPower will exhibit in booth #1147.

This year, ZPower has partnered with multiple hearing aid manufacturers to bring more rechargeable hearing aid options to market, and ultimately, to patients. Today, many hearing aid wearers struggle with the hassle of disposable batteries. The batteries often fail at the most inopportune times and need to be replaced every few days. Therefore, it is no surprise that rechargeable batteries and rechargeable hearing aids are among the top features sought by hearing aid users. According to a study of over 500 hearing aid users, 70 percent said they want rechargeable hearing aids, even though only 11 percent said they currently have them.

ZPower’s silver-zinc rechargeable batteries offer hearing aid wearers the confidence of all-day power—with streaming—and the flexibility to interchange ZPower batteries with zinc-air disposable batteries. Additionally, ZPower batteries are safe, non-flammable and 100% recyclable; no other rechargeable battery on the market today can provide this combination of features and benefits.

Several new silver-zinc rechargeable hearing aids from multiple manufacturers will be displayed in ZPower’s booth #1147. Also, ZPower will be leading a number of educational sessions during the convention, including the following:
