Does the Lens Require Hearing Aid Batteries?


The Earlens Light-Driven Hearing Aid has 3 main parts: the Processor, the Light Tip and the Lens. The Lens directly vibrates the eardrum to activate the natural hearing system. However, it does not require any separate batteries to work.


In Earlens, the behind-the-ear Processor sends sound to the Light Tips, which transform sound information into non-visible light. The non-visible light is sent down to the eardrum and captured by a tiny solar panel on the Lens. The Lens then uses energy from the light to begin vibrating the eardrum based on the sound information encoded in the light pulses. By working in this unique way, Earlens is able to deliver the most complete sound of any hearing aid on the market.


Although the Lens does not require a separate hearing aid battery to work, the Earlens Processor does have a built-in battery. One of the benefits of Earlens is that it is a rechargeable hearing aid. Earlens Hearing Aids have rechargeable batteries that provide a full day’s charge and eliminate the need to change tiny batteries. Earlens comes with a charger that can charge a fully depleted Processor in just 4 hours. Users can simply drop the Earlens Hearing Aids into the charging slots of the charger and they will wirelessly charge. Users can confirm the charging status and current charge level of their Earlens Hearing Aids through the indicator lights on the charger.


If you have an active lifestyle, you may benefit from a rechargeable hearing aid that does not require you to bring back up hearing aid batteries with you. To learn more about the rechargeable Earlens hearing aids, make an appointment with an Earlens provider near you.
