The Nanoplug device is able to be this small thanks to its tiny battery, designed to be many times smaller than currently available hearing aid batteries. The team working on the device claims that it will hold enough charge to power the hearing aid for up to six days.
The device doesn’t completely fill the ear canal, allowing sound to be localized by the wearer, which is another common problem for hearing aids.
