Frequently Asked Battery Questions:
How long do hearing aid batteries typically last?
- A standard hearing aid battery lasts anywhere from 5-6 days.
- It depends on the battery type and capacity, and the amount of hearing aid use.
- Open your battery doors at night to keep the battery lasting longer
When should I change batteries?
- If sounds become distorted or you have to turn up the volume more than usual.
- If you hear a soft beeping sound informing you the battery is low.
- It’s a good idea to carry an extra set of batteries with you at all times.
What is the sticker on the batteries?
- A hearing aid battery begins to discharge as soon as the protective sticker has been removed.
- After removing the tab from the battery, let the battery sit for 3-5 minutes before installing it in your hearing aid. This “activation” time allows air to reach the materials inside the battery and activate them.
What are battery care tips?
- If you won't be using the hearing aid for an extended period of time, remove the battery entirely.
- Avoid storing in extreme temperatures to keep from draining battery power and shortening battery life.
- Wash your hands thoroughly before changing batteries. Grease and dirt on the batteries may damage the hearing aid.
- Leave the battery compartment of your hearing device open at night so moisture can escape. Doing so will keep the battery from corroding and damaging the hearing aid.
- Remove dead batteries immediately. A completely discharged battery may swell and become difficult to remove.
