I have always put my hearing aids in a drying jar at bedtime, but now I must charge them overnight.
You are wise to use a device daily to keep your hearing aids dry. As you know, hearing aids are not waterproof, so perspiration, humidity and moisture from rain or snow can affect their performance. Traditional drying units have used desiccant beads, heat, UV light and/or airflow to remove moisture from inside your hearing aids. However, the drying cycle often takes 8 hours.
People who use hearing aids with rechargeable batteries now have the option of electronic dehumidifiers which complete the drying cycle in only 30 minutes. This keeps your devices working well while allowing you to recharge the batteries while you sleep.
For more information on your dehumidifier options, please contact us.
