All hearing aids use batteries. It is very important the batteries are inserted into your hearing aid correctly. We will make sure you understand how to best care for your new hearing aids and this includes understanding what batteries you will need and how to change them.
The average life of hearing aid batteries is 4-7 days, depending upon the size, features, and power of the hearing aid. Utilizing many of the new wireless features in your hearing devices may impact how rapidly batteries consume power. We use the highest quality batteries available, Rayovac Proline. Zinc-air hearing aid batteries typically last longer than the outdated mercury batteries and are much less toxic to recycle. They come with a protective tab at the top which protects the energy inside the battery from being lost in transport and packaging. You must remember to remove this tab before inserting into your hearing aid. Allow the battery to sit 2-3 minutes after you remove the sticker and before closing the battery door.
Hearing aid batteries should be stored in a cool, dry place just like other batteries – however because hearing aid batteries operate at full power until they are fully drained, they tend to lose power quite abruptly. It is always a good idea to carry extra hearing aid batteries – just in case!
Battery Tester – Avoid throwing away good batteries, test them first if you don’t know if they are good or not.
Battery Caddie – Keep extra batteries in an easy to get to case. Great for bags, desks, car, etc.
Battery Assister – For those who have trouble feeling the batteries, this too helps you install and remove batteries from your hearing devices.
