Well, I believe that intention was mostly focused on the audiologists; but - would you go there just for magnet changing...? ^_^

Colin - how long do you have your BB already? Do you feel you need extra magnet strength?

I have been to the audiologist a couple of times for magnet change - very inconvenient - but the audiologist has told me that the tool is not provided to the clients.  Why is this so?  It would be great to let the user have a bit more independence to be able to change the magnet strength as we get used to using the device.

Janine, this is a guess on my part but it might be for safety reasons. The skin flap after surgery is very delicate. If too much pressure via a magnet that is too strong is applied to the skin flap, it can potentially cut off blood flow to the area causing damage. Once all the swelling goes down, your Audi will have a much better idea of the proper strength magnet to keep the coil in place. It can be frustrating but luckily you know it won't last.
