Take a look at this picture, and tell me what your first thoughts were:
Of course, you can't fully appreciate - I use that term lightly, because that's about all that is light - the weight and size of the remote for my hearing aids.
One of the things I regularly do is to minimize the weight of the things I normally carry around because it all adds to the strain on joints that are already protesting. I consider the weight of my purse and the contents of it; I even streamline the number of keys I carry with me.
Pictured on the right is the remote for my hearing aids. When it was first taken of the box, I think my jaw dropped. The hearing specialist I saw was quick to find a solution for me; she programmed five levels into my hearing aid just so I didn't need to carry around that way-too-large remote.
It doesn't matter which company you source out, the remotes are all about the same size. Tsk! Tsk! They can certainly do better.
