Starkey Hearing Technologies recently launched the new VFusionTM Rechargeable System with ZPower batteries. "This represents an important first step in changing the Audiology market's paradigm from disposable to rechargeable batteries," said Dr. Ross Dueber, President and CEO of ZPower.

ZPower has spent several years in field-testing and market research with many key players in the Audiology sector. The result is a total solution that delivers:

  • A high-performance rechargeable power source – which is especially ideal for advanced wireless hearing instruments
  • Power management and charger design services – to help manufacturers implement a new battery solution quickly and easily
  • A roadmap for future improvement – to accommodate the expanding power requirements of future product designs

"We've found that design support is a critical element for our manufacturer partners. Our power management and charging expertise makes a big difference in helping them adapt current hearing aid products and electronics to ZPower batteries," said Dueber.

A rechargeable battery system provides many benefits to hearing aid wearers including allowing users to wear aids during the day and then provide convenient charging at night. A ZPower battery can power a hearing aid for over 18 hours each day and will last for one year with average use. ZPower batteries also generate less environmental waste as compared to disposable batteries and are fully recyclable.
