I never like to be first in line to try “new HA technology” since many times HA manufactures need extended time to fine tune things before they get it right. Sure many times right out of the gate things work fine but other times it takes a few months to get everything ironed out properly.
With that said what are the thoughts about Widex new Energy Cell Technology and if it will work as promised (long term)? For those who aren’t aware Widex will soon be using the world’s smallest commercially-available fuel cell, Widex Evoke featuring Widex Energy Cell technology allowing users to reenergize their hearing aids off the grid in just 20 seconds. It will be significantly easier to handle than traditional hearing aids and never needs a battery change again.
So will new technology be:
A game changer?
Will Evoke fuel cell hold up day after day recharging?
Thoughts about using oxygen and methanol to recharge HA vs batteries?
I understand the Evoke charge kit is extremely small and can be carried in ones pocket. So sound like Widex has an advantage over larger battery charge kits. Also no batteries - period. Good for the environment and so long battery cost. My only concern is how this energy cell technology holds up over time but that’s what a warranty if supposed to cover.
Also Wonder if Widex has a patent on this new technology so other HA manufactures can’t copy?
