Advanced Bionics's CI's have an indicator light. When it is connected and communication with the internal device, it blink green in response to sound. When it is not functioning properly (generally when it is off the head) it blink red. When the battery is low it is solid orange.
Cochlear also has an option like that, but I am not familiar with it.
