SPECIAL NEEDS in an Emergency Situation - Solar Power for the Hearing Impaired

Good news for those who are dependent on hearing aids, and their ever-dying batteries!

This might help solve the problem of what to do in a prolonged crisis situation, when hearing aid batteries are not available...or you find your little stockpile of batteries are fading out fast. Hearing aid batteries have a way of "expiring" long before their expiration date.

Or horror of horrors, your hearing aid may go on the fritz.

What's that you say?

I plan on ordering the charger soon and will try it out on an inexpensive "hunter's hearing aid" to see if this really works. If you beat me to it, please leave a comment about your experiences (comment link at the end of this post).
