It is no secret that often hearng loss can go hand in hand with arthritis. It is also no secret that replacing the batteries on a hearing aid can be quite a wrestling match for anyone, let alone someone with arthritic hands.
Duracell recently reported that their hearing aid batteries were recognized by the US national arthritis foundation as the best designed for arthritic people. Duracell proudly points out that the tabs on their hearing aid batteries are the longest on the market, in turn giving them an ease of use over others in the space.
The Duracell battery that has won the award is named the EasyTab battery and the tag line for their ad campaign was We hear you. Kudos to Duracell for creating the EasyTab hearing aid battery and kudos to the Arthritis foundation for recognizing their good work.
This news of Duracell’s achievement is the most exciting in the hearing aid battery space since Energizer announced that after 10 years of testing they have developed a zero-mercury hearing aid battery. Energizer, located in Vermont, celebrated their launch of zero-mercury batteries by donating them to needing seniors in the Vermont area.
