HearPeers Heroes Mary Beth Posted August 29, 2018 HearPeers Heroes Report Share Posted August 29, 2018 Hi all, After using disposable batteries in my Sonnets I returned to using rechargeable batteries with a new set of standard rechargeable batteries. I have 6 batteries for my bilateral Sonnets. I start each day with two batteries that were fully charged a day prior and switch mid afternoon to two other batteries that were fully charged the evening before. This leaves two batteries that were charged the evening before to begin the next morning. This is how I rotate batteries and ensure that all 6 batteries are being used equally. I use the Sonnet battery pack wallet to hold the 4 batteries not being used at the moment. Over the past month, I have had an odd problem. When I swap in the fully charged batteries mid day, sometimes the battery has no power at all. The first two times this happened, the batteries had charged in the same slot position in the charger so I assumed something was wrong with that slot of the charger and Med-El replaced the charger. Then it happened again. This time I put a tiny sticker on the battery that had no power at all even after fully charging but kept that battery in rotation. Then it happened yet again but it was not the battery with the sticker. Yesterday it happened twice....one was the battery with the sticker. So I discarded the two batteries. Med-El is replacing the charger again and replacing the batteries this time too. The battery contacts are clean and I use the dry kits every night. The dead batteries would not work in either Sonnet so it isn’t the rechargeable battery adapter nor control unit. I am just wondering if anyone else has had the same experience? Have your Sonnet batteries ever been dead after a full charge? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
