People with hearing loss want to make their lives as comfortable and carefree as possible. Today’s high-quality hearing aids, which have to meet high standards in terms of comfort and reliability, can make a decisive contribution. One of the important factors to meet those standards is a reliable energy supply. As the world’s only hearing aid battery manufacturer of both primary and rechargeable technologies, power one offers a full battery range that meets the different needs of today’s hearing aids. power one will be exhibiting in Hall 4a, booth 210 at the 64th International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians from 16 to 18 October 2019 in Nuremberg.
The core themes of the world’s largest hearing care congress – artificial intelligence, modern sensor technology, and digitisation – are also on top of the agenda at product development process at power one. As Torsten Schmerer, General Manager Business Unit Healthcare at VARTA Microbattery GmbH, points out: “The know-how in battery technology from power one is based on more than 130 years of experience and is transferred modernized into the future.” The equation simply dissolves, innovative hearing aid batteries and rechargeable hearing aid batteries, this is power one. 1 + 1 = power one.”
Primary batteries and rechargeable batteries that supply hearing aids with the best possible and reliable power are the result of a combination of factors at power one, as Torsten Schmerer explains: “The decisive factor is the use of premium quality materials, broadly based materials research through our in-house research and development center and of course many years of experience in cell development. In addition, we rely on our own production plant technology: We develop, build and maintain the tools and machinery necessary for our production.”
As stated, power one is the one manufacturer in the world that can offer today’s marketplace a full range of rechargeable batteries in addition to zinc-air batteries. They are produced on fully automated production lines in the world’s most modern and largest hearing aid battery production in Ellwangen. To supply an optimal source of energy for all requirements of modern hearing aids is the credo of power one.
This commitment to innovation is why new developments, such as the power one EVOLUTION based on TFT (Thin Foil Technology) are developed. EVOLUTION, by power one, achieves performance through very high energy density and up to 15 percent (Type 312) longer running time compared to the standard power one.
Further information on the power one products will be available at the EUHA stand 210 in hall 4a or online at www.powerone-batteries.com
