THE WORLD’S SMALLEST FUEL CELL
WIDEX EVOKE EC™ is the first hearing aid to be based on fuel cell technology.
In fact, it’s the world’s smallest commercially available fuel cell.
We call it WIDEX ENERGY CELL™, and it requires no conventional hearing aid batteries or power outlets.
HOW FUEL CELL TECHNOLOGY WORKS
The small fuel cell inside EVOKE EC gets energy from the refill unit, which holds a methanol cartridge.
Once the methanol meets the air inside the fuel cell, electrical energy is produced to power the hearing aid.
The only waste from this reaction is vaporised water and negligible amounts of carbon dioxide.
20 SECONDS TO GET 24 HOURS
With the off-the-grid refill unit, EVOKE EC is effortless to re-energise. You can do it anytime, anywhere.
Simply place the hearing aid into the refill well and wait for 20 seconds.
In that time, the refill unit will extract any remaining methanol and supply the fuel cell with new methanol.
This fuel cell technology gives a 24-hour run-time, so users won’t miss out on anything.
