News for week ending 17 May 2002


Hearing just got easier for people who have difficulty handling and replacing tiny batteries in their hearing aids. A hearing aid dispenser just released eliminates the need to handle batteries or remove tabs by hand.

Energizer EZ Change features a magnetic arm that allows the user to insert a fresh battery directly from the dispenser to the hearing aid, without having to pick up or hold onto the battery.

Research shows that the frustration of handling the small hearing aid batteries prevents one in four people from using hearing aids. The battery tabs are small and difficult to grasp and remove, causing people to drop them regularly.

Lance Cairns, former New Zealand cricket player, says, "Because Energizer EZ Change eliminates the need to touch the hearing aid battery, I no longer have to worry about these things. The product will definitely benefit hearing impaired people."
