Where do you find the PerfectDry Lux from Costco? I’ve searched for it on Costco.com and can’t find it except on Amazon and other places.
However, I called Starkey tech support yesterday to ask if that particular dryer with a temp of 113F/45C was OK for their Livio Edge AI custom ITE hearing aids and was told they don’t recommend anything with heat.
Then he told me their desiccant pack in the custom HA charger was sufficient to dry out the HA’s under normal usage. So, I asked him what desiccant pack in the charger because there isn’t a holder for one in the custom HA charger–only in the regular HA charger. He checked and told me that I could just place a pack loose in the charger. I was already doing that because I noticed this problem when researching the HA’s for my trial and asked for some packs from my VA audiologist. It’s not a big deal because the pack fits loose in the charger. However, since the desiccant pack isn’t on the VA “authorized” list of things to order for custom HA’s, I guess I’ll have to argue with DALC when I need more desiccant pack supplies.
The Starkey tech also told me that I could place the HA’s in one of those jars with the drying beads to dry them out if I wanted. So, I asked when I was suppose to charge my HA’s if they spend the night in a jar and weren’t ready to go in the morning when I got up–oops… I guess this is where replaceable battery HA’s come in handy, but I prefer rechargeable HA’s.
Anyway, I’ll see what kind of comments this post gets me and may get the dryer anyway. So, how would I get it from Costco?
