Heading out of town? Here are some things you might want to bring along with you on your trip and some tips about airline travel.

  • Dry aid container
  • Listening kit
  • Cleaning tools (pick, brushes)
  • Back up CI processor and parts
  • Rechargeable batteries and battery charger
  • Disposable batteries
  • Contact information for your audiologist and/or your CI center

Note: It’s best if your child wears their devices through the metal detectors, but it is okay to put spare processors through the x-ray machines if they are turned off.

Cochlear implants and hearing aids do not need to be powered off at any point during flight.
