Friends: Once enough time has passed to get a good look at the early reviews, I will be getting Oticon Real 1 to replace 312 battery Opn S1s. I’ve read enough on the More versions to know the daily use figures (~16 hours) don’t seem to be an issue for me. My primary questions would be: what is the general lifespan of the replaceable lithium-ion rechargable batteries? What’s the warranty period? What’s the cost?
I’m retired and pretty much a full-time caregiver so my days of traveling the world and the US are largely over. I’ve been using 312s for years, but briefly used the rechargable Opn, loved it and ditched it only because the 10mm width caused me external ear pain at the end of the day. The new More and Real units are sufficiently narrow (6mm rechargable/7mm 312 battery) that I don’t think that would be an issue with the rechargeables.
I don’t do much streaming, though I have become quite reliant on having Bluetooth on all the time for phone calls. I abhor holding a cell phone to my ear! (Lazy so-and-so.)
So, to my questions: What’s the lifespan, warranty period and replacement cost of the rechargable batteries?
Thanks in advance.
