Nucleus 7 Aqua+ Activity Kit
The Aqua+ is an accessory for the Nucleus 7 model specifically designed to be completely waterproof. By sliding your N7 processor into a flexible silicone sleeve, and inserting a specially made coil, you can ready yourself for any underwater experience*.
Cochlear states that "A single Aqua+ sleeve can be used up to 50 times and is capable of being submerged for two hours at depths up to three meters. It also performs swimmingly in all types of water, including saltwater, chlorinated pools, and soapy bathwater. Durable, reusable, and compact, it’s aptly suited for casual swimming or washing, but we recommend that any activities such as surfing be done with a hat, headband, or, for the most security, with one of the included Aqua+ Safety Lines and Mic Lock-Stirrups. Be sure to use your Aqua+ only with rechargeable batteries; since zinc air batteries need oxygen to function, they will not work sealed inside the Aqua+ sleeve. Designed around hermetic seals, the Aqua+ kit does not need to be screwed, only pushed straight in. Do not twist. Simply press the Aqua+ coil cable into its port, and the sleeve’s door snugly into its sleeve—a tight closure will be automatically created."
With the purchase of an Aqua+ recipient kit, you will receive:
- 2 clear, soft Aqua+ sleeves
- 1 waterproof Aqua+ coil (comes in one colour: black with aqua accents)
- 1 magnet (recommended by Cochlear to be the same strength magnet you normally use**)
- 1 Aqua+ Safety Lines
- 1 Mic Lock Stirrups
- 1 Waterproof case
Please select the appropriate options when ordering.
*The Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor with the Aqua+ is water resistant to level IP68 of the International Standard IEC60529. This water protection only applies when you use the Aqua+ and rechargeable batteries. Not approved for use with the acoustic component (hybrid processors).
