Wow, I wish I had ideas for you. I've been tossing those 675s for years now...I bet they pile up fast with that implant! I read on a CI list that one woman saves hers (takes them out and saves them, three at a time) and one day a month or so, she just goes through them all on a day when she's home...she says that she can get a few more hours' wear out of them after they've had a chance to sit and rest a few days. I don't know if you feel like bothering, but she was proud of her idea :D
Some kind of mosaic, perhaps? ;)


ha! earrings! could you wire them together in some sort of dangly fashion??

Perhaps Steve could glue them onto a board or fabric or something in the shape of a cochlea - a nice spiral pattern - and mount it in a shadow box. You could add other tchotchkes too (I'm not sure what).
OR here's another idea - since they look like hockey pucks, perhaps you could get a picture of a hockey game and enhance it with batteries where the puck is.
OR you could glue them together as tiny little dollhouse furniture (chairs, tables, a sexy round bed).
Admittedly, these are really stupid ideas, but you asked me to post them as a way to inspire the creative juices in other folks! mom

How about a big mosiac of an ear?


Send them back to the supplier, and get them charged up again. In the UK, you have to take your old batteries back to the hospital, before they will issue you with new ones.

Batteries filling landfill sites is not a good idea.

I think Lowes will recycle them, but I don't know if they have the right kind of electrolytes inside.... are they Lithium Ion or Nickel Cadmium?

If you save your batteries in the pack that they came in, you can donate them to nursing homes for hearing aids users. CI batteries after use by a Nucleus user, still have enough juice to last hearing aid users a couple of days for their aids. It helps those who can't afford to purchase batteries for their aids.

I've just been staying at home waiting for something to happen. I just don't have much to say right now, but so it goes. I've basically been doing nothing to speak of, but shrug. Today was a loss. I don't care. That's how it is.
