    Get electric eel as pet. Why? It would recharge in no time.

    Otherwise, I think scientific should find a way to plug CI to human's natural electric to charge. What? Matrix said we're like a battery.

    On Ebay, I bought a huge batch of good 675 batteries. They don't expire for two years.

    It was a private sale, and I think someone died! :P

    A little I guess. I thought it was kind of creepy to sell on the deaf relative's batteries, but not creepy enough that I didn't buy it very cheaply.

    My daughter has dual implants and uses rechargeable batteries. She has nucleus 5 processors from cochlear corporation, and she gets about 15 hrs on a charge.
