So, David, if you look again, I put the word “on” in quotation marks. The hearing aids are not “on” when they’re in the charger in the sense that they don’t function as hearing aids and don’t receive commands from a smartphone. But technically, they are definitely ON in the sense that electricity is coursing through their veins (or what makes their LED flash?!) and ON in the sense that they detect, probably by magnetic induction or RF communication with the charger, as to when they’re removed. I mentioned in the
first second paragraph of my previous post that, to the best of my knowledge, my Quattro 961’s are inoperative as HA’s when in the charger but they are ON as electronic devices.
The ReSound manual is a bit ambiguous on ON and OFF. At the start of manual section 7.3, the manual says the hearing aids are turned ON when removed from the charging case. OK, if they’re turned ON, maybe that means they must have been officially OFF, according to ReSound, in the charging case. But yet in the second note of section 7.3, it says that if the HA’s are left in the charging case for 24 hours, they will automatically be turned OFF. How can something that’s already OFF in the charging case, according to you and ReSound, be turned OFF again after sitting 24 hours in the case?! So, I think this whole thing is an exercising in splitting hairs and ReSound has proved that it, as the source of information, is not very good with definitions of ON or OFF.
The mention of simultaneously putting aids into the charger to reboot was just a comparison, as I thought was evident, compared to disposables, where to open and close the battery doors to reboot, you have to do it one by one. So, there’s a miniscule advantage of ease and efficiency in being able to reboot both rechargeable aids at the same time and not have to be fumbling with them one at a time. That’s all that’s meant there. Obviously, if you can do both together, why shouldn’t you be able to do them one by one if you wanted? Being able to do both together certainly doesn’t imply you can’t do them one by one.
