Abstract

As almost all electro acoustic body-worn apparatuses, modern hearing aids use accumulators to provide their functionality. Such batteries however cause a sudden loss of the hearing aids functionality when the battery is empty. Thus, a user has to carry a spare battery, either particularly or in some extra carrying device.

Spare battery compartment in hearing aid or hearing aid remote controller

Idea: Ren Liu, SG-Singapore; Agustiar, SG-Singapore

As almost all electro acoustic body-worn apparatuses, modern hearing aids use accumulators to provide their functionality. Such batteries however cause a sudden loss of the hearing aids functionality when the battery is empty. Thus, a user has to carry a spare battery, either particularly or in some extra carrying device.

In the following, it is proposed to incorporate a spare battery compartment into the hearing aid or into a remote control for the hearing aid. By creating such a compartment a spare battery is put at the user's disposal at any given time. A spare battery compartment can be advantageously created in BTE (Behind the Ear) hearing aids or in remote controls for hearing aid devices where enough installation space is available.
