Hearing aid charging in Oliver


John Dorrer

Recommended Posts

I just got hear aids and hoping someone can share their charging experience in their Oliver.

 

Just purchased Oticon hearing aids. When plugged into shore Power, I can plug into 110. I can also use USB. 

 

The charging manual says to ensure that the power source is USB 2.0 compliant, with a minimum of 500mA output.

 

The USB cord has the oval end. I don't have access to our Oliver right now to see what the USB looks like. Wonder if Oliver installs the new oval plug or the older that has a longer bottom leg with shorter upper leg.

 

Worst case, I'm guessing I can purchase a 12-volt plug, that has the newer USB plug on the the end.

 

Any advise would be appreciated.

John, All of our devices use USB-C, so I have a few of these scattered among our vehicles. They were $13 CyberMonday. Anker is a reputable brand. You'll likely find less expensive versions, but I've had no-name USB-A adapters melt before.

My wife has (2-3 year old) Oticon hearing aids with a USB-A charging plug, which works fine with the Blue Sea 2x USB-A outlets that Oliver was installing back in late 2018. I'm not familiar with what they're installing now. I'm not surprised that Oticon has likely upgraded to USB-C charging since then as its becoming much more universal.

We also have several Anker 12V USB-A/C adapter plugs similar to the one Steve Morris has shown above, and second his recommendation for Anker USB products.

I did a quick survey on the Blue Sea website, and could not find any USB-C flush-mount outlets from Blue Sea available yet. Those outlets are not difficult to swap out if you can find one from a quality manufacturer that has the same form factor as the factory installed units (thus eliminating the need to use the separate USB adaptor plug...).

A USB-A to USB-C adapter would also work as Mike has suggested.

I went back toy charger and it is the regular USB, which will plug in just fine.

 This must have been a brain fart on my part. Not sure how I was thinking there was a "C" end.🙃
