How long will my battery last?
Hearing aid batteries typically last about 5 to 7 days, depending on the size of the battery, your model hearing aid, level of hearing loss and the demands of the location where you use them. The more active your hearing aid is, the more battery power it will use. If you purchase rechargeable hearing aids they can last up to 24 hours.
Why don’t these batteries last longer?
Wrist watch batteries can last years because it requires little power to keep your watch ticking. Hearing aids, on the other hand, require more power to perform complex functions that amplify sound correctly to meet your needs in varying listening environments. If you feel you are changing batteries too frequently, ask us about rechargeable hearing aid batteries.
How can I avoid running out of batteries?
It’s easy. Keep at least a month’s supply of hearing aid batteries on hand, about eight to 10, and order more once you’re down to four to allow for shipping time. Also consider trying rechargeable hearing aids.
Where should I store my hearing aid batteries?
But don’t store hearing aid batteries in the refrigerator. Condensation and moisture can harm them. Avoid extremes in temperature, too. Hearing aid batteries like room temperature — just like you.
