Every individual is unique and hearing aid requirements are equally diverse. Factors such as lifestyle, leisure activities and age must all be taken into account to ensure everybody has the right energy solution for their device. To show how this is done, power one is showcasing its complete range of batteries and new innovations at the ME-OTO conference in Dubai and the AAA in Nashville in April.
power one will be exhibiting at the 15th Annual Meeting of Middle East Academy of Otolaryngology (ME-OTO) in Dubai from April 1st until 3rd, 2018. At Stand D15, power one is showcasing its solutions. Two weeks after that, from April 18-21, power one will be present at the AAA 2018, formerly AudiologyNOW!, booth 232, at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
Performance expectations for hearing aid batteries are higher than ever before. The real cutting edge in technology comes in the form of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries integrated into the hearing aid. Power one’s “Li-Ion accu” provides just this kind of solution and therefore has a complete product range that delivers high quality.
With fully automated manufacturing facilities at one of the largest and most innovative production plants for hearing aid batteries in the world, power one ensures precision and reliability for all its products. The aim is to guarantee high quality for every single cell and battery. “Our own expectations have always been high, and this is why we have continued to develop and improve our processes and products. This is reflected in our “power one inside” seal of approval, explains Torsten Schmerer, General Manager Retail at VARTA Microbattery GmbH.
Hearing aids are a constant companion for their users, so it is essential that they can rely on the absolute safety of the device and its components. Alongside performance and quality, safety is therefore another key priority for power one, a commitment that last year secured it DIN ISO 13485 certification. “This confirms that our products fulfil strict requirements for medical devices from production and development right through to distribution,” explains Torsten Schmerer.
