CAMARILLO, CA – August 31, 2015 – ZPower, the leading developer of rechargeable, silver-zinc batteries, will launch a new rechargeable system for hearing aids at the 2015 International Hearing Society (IHS) Convention & Expo. The convention takes place from September 10-12 in Orlando, FL. ZPower will exhibit in Booth #401.
“The IHS Convention is one of the industry’s most important conferences for hearing instrument specialists and dispensers, and this year will be a significant one for ZPower,” said Sara Sable-Antry, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ZPower. “There is a pent up demand for a rechargeability in hearing aids, and we believe the timing and our product couldn’t be better. We look forward to working with hearing care providers who can offer our technology to their patients later this year.”
Rechargeable batteries are among the top features sought by hearing aid users. A recent MarkeTrak 9 study ranked the most compelling features sought by non-owners of hearing aids. “A rechargeable hearing aid” and “rechargeable batteries for hearing aids” ranked #2 and #4 on the wish list – which points to the high demand for a rechargeable solution for hearing aids.
Disposable hearing aid batteries are used by people with varying levels of dexterity, often run out of power in the middle of the day, and require frequent changing. The ZPower Rechargeable System offers 24+ hours of continuous power each day, charges overnight in the hearing aids, takes the place of an estimated 200 disposable batteries, and lasts a full year. The ZPower hearing aid battery is replaced once per year by a hearing care professional so the patient never has to touch a hearing aid battery again.
ZPower is currently signing new distributors. Those who are interested should send an email to [email protected]
IHS 2015 is the premier event for hearing instrument specialists. The convention brings together members that represent 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.
