Getting The Most Out Of ZPower Rechargable Batteries
At ZPower, we are committed to enhancing the quality of life and hearing experience of patients, and we are thrilled that so many people are now benefiting from silver-zinc rechargeable hearing aid battery technology. Because our battery technology is different from traditional hearing aid battery technology, it requires a different care routine; and as our batteries become more and more popular, we’ve recognized the need for some additional information to help users get the most of their experience.
No Need to 'Pre-Charge' Batteries
ZPower batteries are shipped fully charged. The ZPower cells will provide a full day of wear right out of the box.
Fully Charge the Batteries Daily
Each night, the hearing aids should be placed in the charging base. Once the hearing aids are finished charging, the indicator lights turn from blinking green to solid green. A full charge may take up to 7 hours. Do not try to extend battery life by charging every other day, as this increases the chances of depleting the battery. A fully depleted battery will take longer to charge and may not fully charge in time for next use.
Do Not Reboot Hearing Aids After Low-Battery Warning
Once the low-battery warning occurs or once a hearing aid shuts off due to a low battery condition, do not open the battery door to reboot the hearing aid. Rebooting after the low battery warning can override the smart circuitry in the battery door into believing it has a traditional disposable battery installed and, although the hearing aid will continue to work for a short period, it may over-discharge the battery. If a low-battery warning from the hearing aids is received, place the hearing aids in the charging base for charging or replace with non-rechargeable batteries.
When Not In Use, Keep Hearing Aids In Charging Base And Plugged In
If the hearing aids are not being worn, it is best to leave them in the charging base to ensure they stay fully charged. The charging base will not overcharge the hearing aids and will ensure the batteries stay at full charge. Do not unplug the charging base with the hearing aids inserted, as this will cause the hearing aids to turn on, and the batteries to begin discharging. Good habit: If not on the ears, put hearing aids in the charging base.
