Hearing aid users, get ready to take a technological leap. Starting the summer of 2019, Widex will be selling the world’s first battery-free hearing device!
The WIDEX EVOKE EC™ hearing aid features the world’s smallest commercially available fuel cell. When your hearing aid needs to be charged, you simply place it in the refill unit and it’ll charge your hearing aids. Twenty seconds of re-energizing is all it takes to power your hearing aid for the next 24 hours.
At Hearing Associates of Las Vegas, we make sure we’re familiar with every device that can help our patients hear well while living easier. So we are waiting in anticipation for the game-changing release of WIDEX EVOKE EC™ hearing aids. If you’re anything like us, your first question after hearing these hearing aids are battery-free is, “How does it work?”
WIDEX EVOKE EC™ Offers Big Power In A Small Package.
Understanding how WIDEX EVOKE EC™ offers battery-free, outlet-free charging for your hearing aid starts with a quick lesson in chemistry.
The miniaturized fuel cell inside EVOKE EC™ obtains energy from a refill unit holding a methanol cartridge. When you place your EVOKE EC hearing aid in the refill well, it stocks the fuel cell with a new store of methanol. When the methanol meets the air inside the fuel cell, it creates the energy to power your hearing aid. It’s an electrochemical reaction that may well revolutionize the lives of countless hearing aid users.
The World’s Taking Notice Of WIDEX EVOKE EC™
WIDEX EVOKE EC™ has turned some heads in the world of technology. Earlier this year, it was chosen as an honoree in the 2019 CES Innovation Awards—a program designed to salute outstanding product design and engineering in the latest consumer technology products. Widex’s game-changing, battery-free hearing aids were cited as one of the most impressive technologies in the realms of Fitness, Sports and Biotech.
WIDEX also received a “best of the best” Red Dot Award in 2018 for “the highest design quality, expressing innovation in form and function in an outstanding manner.”
WIDEX Is A Consistently Innovative Hearing Aid Brand
Even before the creation of WIDEX EVOKE EC™, a premier example of the recent boom in nanotechnology, Widex was counted among the most reputable and innovative hearing aid brands.
We’ve already had clients, tired of fumbling with tiny hearing aid batteries, say their lives have been simplified by Widex Beyond Z rechargeable hearing aids. Widex has also gained rave reviews from our tinnitus patients who have tried Widex hearing aids equipped with WIDEX ZEN THERAPY™. This technology, which can be embedded in all Widex hearing aids, features soothing fractal sounds projected discreetly into your ears.
These fractal Zen tones, which sound like chimes in tone, are played at a rate as random as tinnitus itself.
