Rechargeable Hearing Aids
No more fiddling with batteries!
Rechargeable hearing aids have been around for many years, with leading German company ‘Siemens Hearing Instruments‘ paving the way with behind-ear models, and Hansaton (another German company) being the only brand to have released in-ear rechargeable hearing aids. (Note: ‘Siemens Hearing’ now being ‘Sivantos’, and supplying SIGNIA branded hearing aids).
Hansaton have very little representation in the UK (Puretone Ltd being the UK distributor) and with talks of a Hansaton takeover we are unsure of their current position – we do not feel it is worth investing in such products for now. There are no other in-ear rechargeable options currently available.
Below we take a look at the latest behind-ear rechargeable hearing aids that can help you.

Recommended lithium-ion rechargeable hearing aids
Phonak : lithium-ion
ALSO NOW – Phonak Audeo Marvel – the first ‘made for android & iPhone‘ hearing aid
Signia : lithium-ion
Signia (formerly Siemens Hearing) introduced lithium-ion rechargeable battery technology in 2017 with the Signia Cellion hearing aids. The Cellion has now been replaced by the Signia Pure Charge & Go, and Signia have now introduced the amazingly thin and stylish Signia Styletto rechargeable hearing aid.
ReSound Quattro : lithium-ion
Not a moment had gone by after Sivantos launched the cosmetically appealing Signia Styletto that ReSound then launched the LiNX Quattro lithium-ion rechargeable hearing aid, which whilst not as slim, is as small in volume, but also offers the benefit of ‘made for iphone’ streaming and remote control technology (and Android remote control). So the LiNX Quattro is the first ‘all encompassing technology’ lithium-ion hearing aid.

Unitron : silver-zinc
Unitron entered the lithium ion rechargeable hearing aid market in 2017 with the Unitron Tempus – the world’s smallest rechargeable (receiver-in-canal) hearing aid (at time of writing). A very nicely designed and highly technical rechargeable hearing aid option – utilising the Z-Power charging unit.Tips for extending battery life
ReSound : silver-zinc
Resound Linx 3D rechargeable hearing aids were launched in 2018 and use the z-power charging unit.
The hearing aid casing is slightly different to the normal Linx 3D – thus, if you already have Linx 3D you cannot use the charging unit.
We recommend ReSound’s lithium-ion batteries as above.
Widex : silver-zinc
