Batteries Not Included

One thing I’ve always hated about hearing aids was the frequent battery changes. That doesn’t stop with the CI. Right now, I am using two rechargeable double-AA batteries in the processor. I have to change them every day as they last about 12 hours. The disposable ones last about three days, but I hate to pile up on trash.
With hearing aids, I had to use two 675 batteries. With the CI, when I go behind-the-ear, I’ll be using THREE of them.
I keep getting tangled with the cord. Either the baby grabs it or I forget that it’s not a mile long. Surprised the CI makers haven’t come up with wireless CI. Then again, I might pick up conversations in the neighborhood. I wouldn’t want anyone to steal the bandwidth or sound, in this case. 🙂
