HEARING AID BATTERIES

All hearing aids have batteries and they come in several sizes. It is very important that the batteries are inserted into your hearing aid correctly. At Advanced Audiology, we will ensure that you understand how to best care for your hearing aids and this includes an understanding of what batteries you will need and how to insert them. Batteries are included as part of our Complete Hearing Health Care program.

The average life of hearing aid batteries is 5 days – 3 weeks depending upon the sizes and power of the hearing aid. Volume control can also effect the life of your batteries.

batteriesThe best hearing aid batteries currently on the market are what are Zinc-Air. A Zinc-Air hearing aid batteries typically lasts longer than the outdated mercury batteries and are much less toxic to recycle.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. It is best to allow battery to sit 3-5 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 or spare hearing aids – just in case!
