Power Options that Suit your Lifestyle

With AB, you have a variety of ways to power your sound processor to suit your lifestyle. Depending on which AB processor you or your child uses, it can be powered by convenient disposable options, eco-friendly rechargeable options, or both. 

Eco-Friendly, Cost-Effective Rechargeable 
Power Options

AB’s rechargeable power options are designed to provide outstanding hearing performance from morning to evening. Eco-friendly for environmentally conscious recipients, rechargeable batteries are also cost-effective and frequently covered by insurance. They are easy to use and can be conveniently charged each evening while you are sleeping, so they are ready to go as soon as you start your day. 

Convenient Disposable Power Options

For those who travel or are often on the go, disposable power options offer a convenient solution in case you forget to pack extras or bring a charger along with you. AB designed the Naída CI and Neptune™ sound processors to be powered conveniently by readily available disposable batteries.

  • Naída CI can be powered by two disposable zinc-air batteries or a AAA PowerPak.
  • Neptune can run on a single AAA disposable battery, available at virtually any filling station or convenience store.

Designed exclusively for AB’s Naída CI sound processor, the PowerCel 110 mini, the smallest battery option, provides up to 17 hours of power, while the PowerCel 230 keeps your Naída CI processor going for up to 36 hours between charges.
