Battery Life
« Reply #75 on: November 20, 2015, 10:56:29 am »
Back in July I tested the battery life in my CROS II and Audeo V90:


On the 5th day the battery in the CROS II died after operating for 69 hours and 45 minutes.

The battery in the Audeo V90 kept going into the 6th day and died after operating for a total of 83 hours.


Since then I have just been changing one battery at a time and wanted to remind owners of the CROS II bicross hearing aids that you'll save some money in the long run if you change one at a time.

I finally got my CROSS II, after wearing the CROSS I for 4 years. So far it works good I guess, although I haven't been in any situations yet where I noticed a difference. They are a little bigger than the old ones which I don't like but the battery does last much longer. Only odd part is the wire seems too tight up against the top of my ear. Even though the wires are the same exact size as my old CROSS. Going back to the audiologist tomorrow to get fitted for a larger wire. Maybe that might help...

I noticed an improvement in noisy environments, like crowded restaurants. Still not perfect, but better than the old ones.

I hadn't noticed the size difference but, you're right, I just checked my old ones for comparison.

As it turns out, the size "1" wires I had were the correct size. Just for some reason where the wire rests on the top of my ear it gets sore after awhile. I never had an issue with the old CROSS. Maybe I just need a little more time to get adjusted to them.
