Re-chargable battery

How long do your re-chargeable batteries last?  I am finding with brand new standard batteries just over 12 hours....

@Sandy123 When my right side was activated with OPUS2 that rechargeable battery lasted many more hours at first before my MAPs were fully up to speed for some reason.

Sonnet standard rechargeable batteries always start off at 10.5 hours for me but within a couple of months are under 9 hours.  Other people have better luck with them.  Med-El swapped out everything and the same exact thing happened again so I use disposable batteries.

Oh wow, I am getting 12.5 so far.   I will get used to changing them I am sure. But with hearing aids my disposables were lasting 12 days. However I was living in a quiet world....

@Sandy123 Mine stabilized at 9.5 hours.  It will depend to some extent on your MAP.  I have a strong bias against single-use things so I'm really loving rechargeable batteries - I've spent my life throwing out hearing-aid batteries and love that I don't have to do it anymore.  I carry the battery wallet with me all the time and just swap out a battery when I need to.  No biggie.  I've changed batteries while walking through the plant at work, sitting in restaurants, in meetings, in the car.  It will become something you just do.

@Mary FeatherstonI am with you on the disposable batteries I also use them I know how long they will last and if I have to I can change them ahead of time if I will be doing something or going somewhere and helping the environment. I’ve had the disposable batteries die on me at inappropriate time.

I am getting the hang of these re-chargable batteries no problem.    Question is it worth while to put a battery in the charger before bed that still has some charge in it? Or should I continue to use it the next day and let the charge drain?

@Sandy123

When I asked Med-El about that they said to charge it.  These batteries do not need to drain completely between charges.

Exactly charge the batteries,you don’t need unexpected surprise when using batteries.I use the rechargeable 90% of the time the only time I use disposable is when I am on vacation or traveling and don’t what to stop and change batteries.

I charge batteries every day same batteries since my implant in 2016.

Hope this info helps.
