Rechargeable batteries for hearing aids have been around for a while. However, most of the time, they struggled to gain widespread acceptance among consumers and hearing care providers. Rechargeable batteries didn't last long enough for the needs of hearing aid wearers.

Thus, hearing care professionals were reluctant to recommend rechargeable hearing aids and instead opted for hearing aids that used conventional disposable batteries instead.

However, that all changed in 2016 with the release of the first lithium-ion rechargeable hearing aids. What made this technology so much better than previous efforts?

Advantages of rechargeable lithium-ion hearing aid batteries

No more battery changes: Lithium-ion batteries are built-in and can't be removed from the hearing aids. Plug your hearing into the charger, and never again will you have to buy or install those tiny batteries.

Outstanding reliability: Your hearing aids will finally last all day. They will typically, in fact, last a full 24 hours. You can still get 16 hours of life from a complete charge if you stream audio heavily from your phone or TV for several hours a day.

Better durability: Because the hearing aid's case is sealed, it is more moisture and dust resistant. Another advantage of having a battery sealed (with no door) inside the hearing aid is that there are fewer moving parts than conventional battery hearing aids to don't break as often.

It’s safe to say that lithium-ion rechargeable batteries are here to stay. Here are some of the most exciting hearing aids available to you in 2020.

The Oticon Opn S

Oticon Opn S hearing aids help you break free of limitations and join the discussion even in the most challenging circumstances. Oticon Opn S comes with enhanced technology to give your brain access to the sounds around you that are the most important. Studies have shown that you can experience speech comprehension on par with those with natural hearing. The Opn also offers a smart rechargeable solution for a full day of hearing that you recharge at night. It also features a groundbreaking feature that eliminates feedback.

Phonak Paradise

Phonak Paradise is a multi-functional hearing aid that, combined with industry-leading wireless connectivity, provides unparalleled hearing performance and speech comprehension. A host of newly developed features are included in the Paradise, including customized noise cancellation, motion sensors, tap control, and multiple Bluetooth® connections.

Building on the Phonak Marvel's worldwide popularity, the next generation PRISM (Processing Real-time Intelligent Sound Management) sound chip from Phonak boosts processing power and twice its predecessor's memory.

ReSound LiNX Quattro

With the ability to reach a broader frequency spectrum and boasting the industry's highest input dynamic range, the ReSound LiNX Quattro delivers an excellent sound experience. Whether participating in conversations or listening to music, the finer details and nuances shine through. You will encounter more of the finer details that enrich your day.

It only takes three hours for the ReSound LiNX Quattro rechargeable solution to completely charge, giving you an unbelievable 30 hours of battery life. Even if you're streaming TV or music 50 percent of the time, the ReSound LiNX Quattro will still keep going for 24 hours.


The Widex MOMENT aims to deliver the purest natural sound ever. Sound transmitted in a hearing aid usually enters the eardrum later than sound received. And you get an artificial sound when these two 'out of sync' signals combine. But with the Widex MOMENT, you can hear every moment as it was meant to be heard.

Widex has developed the world's first and only artificially intelligent hearing aid to produce a completely natural sound, which learns how individuals need to hear and update their sound experience optimized to the current sound environment.

The Widex MOMENT mRIC model is the smallest rechargeable receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aid on the market. However, it still delivers enough power to last the day, all with a convenient and straightforward charging dock station.
