Where are we now?

As of 2017 rechargeable hearing aids have started using more the advanced lithium-ion rechargeable battery technology.

Lithium-ion batteries are more robust than previous rechargeable batteries and do not fade in performance over time. Lithium-ion batteries are also quicker to recharge.

If you have rechargeable hearing aids prior to 2017 then you will be using older technology batteries; which do tend to fade in performance over a year or two.
