Hearing Aid Storage Boxes from £6.99
Keep your hearing aids safe and dry with our range of storage boxes. Dirt, moisture and earwax buildup can be detrimental to the lifespan of your hearing aid and it is therefore important to keep them protected and dry when not in use.
Types of Hearing Aid Storage Boxes
Hearing aid storage boxes are often referred to as ‘dry boxes’ - boxes that remove the moisture from the device. There are a number of options available:
The most basic solution - drying capsules are placed in the drying pot with the hearing aid for up to 8 hours. The capsules contain silica crystals that absorb the moisture. The battery must be removed from the hearing aid before drying.
Electric Dry Box
Better for home storage, the electric dry boxes keep hearing aids dry by circulating air around the box.
Desiccant bricks are used in some electric dry boxes, offering maximum drying effectiveness. The bricks last for two months on average.
Premium dry boxes include a UV-C light which eliminates 99.9% of germs, sterilising the hearing aid.
Why should you use a storage box?
