To Our Cochlear Recipients,

 

As the global leader in hearing innovation, Cochlear continually strives to deliver on our commitment to our customers to Hear Now. And Always. We actively seek to develop better options to help our customers achieve greater hearing performance and quality of life.

As an organization we have made a decision that as of December 31, 2017, we will no longer offer the aftermarket sale of disposable batteries. This decision was based on a few important factors:

1. The supplier of Cochlear’s recommended brand of disposable batteries has informed us that by the end of 2017 they will no longer produce their line of disposable batteries containing mercury.  Cochlear commends this move based on our understanding of the reduced impact on the environment that the newer mercury-free batteries will provide.

2.  With this change to our disposable battery supply, our research indicates that there are many battery vendors that can offer high-quality disposable batteries, often at a lower price than what we can offer to our customers moving forward.

For more information about this change and a list of detailed FAQ’s, please visit our Disposable Battery FAQ page.

We know that it is important for you to find a trusted merchant when it comes to buying the right kind of disposable batteries for your equipment.  For that reason, we have developed a recommended list of vendors that you can access below:

Cochlear Americas
We’re the people who help people hear. We invented the world’s first multi-channel cochlear implant over 30 years ago, which has evolved into our Cochlear™ Nucleus® System today. Later, we added a bone conduction implant, the Cochlear Baha® System, to our treatment options, so we could help care for more people with hearing loss. And now, with the Cochlear™ Nucleus® Hybrid Implant System, we can help individuals missing high-frequency sounds who may not have had an effective treatment option available to them.
