ZPower batteries are safe, non-flammable and recyclable; no other rechargeable battery on the market today can provide this combination of features and benefits.
Camarillo, Calif. December 22, 2017
ZPower, the world’s only developer of rechargeable, silver-zinc microbatteries, announces its collaboration with Denmark-based hearing aid manufacturer WIDEX A/S to offer a rechargeable battery solution for its WIDEX BEYOND™ range of hearing aids. The new BEYOND Z will begin shipping this month in the U.S. and Canada, and shipments to the rest of the markets will begin Q1 ’18. Additionally, current BEYOND users will be able to get BEYOND Z by having their BEYOND hearing aids retrofitted for a fee.
ZPower batteries offer hearing aid wearers the confidence of all-day power and the flexibility to interchange ZPower batteries with zinc-air disposable batteries. Additionally, ZPower batteries are safe, non-flammable and recyclable; no other rechargeable battery on the market today can provide this combination of features and benefits.
“We are pleased that WIDEX chose ZPower’s rechargeable silver-zinc battery technology for their BEYOND hearing aids,” said Sara Sable-Antry, VP of Sales and Marketing for ZPower. “With the launch of the BEYOND Z, more patients will benefit from the convenience of reliable, rechargeable hearing aids.”
“The combination of superior sound quality and effortless smartphone integration in BEYOND is proving to be a popular solution for hearing-aid users,” said Jørgen Jensen, CEO of Widex. “The fact that power consumption of WIDEX hearing aids is among the lowest in the industry made building on the success of BEYOND with the introduction of a rechargeable option a natural next step.”
