hearing aid battery charge levels

Question: I am replacing my hearing aid batteries more often lately. Is there anything I can do to make them last longer?

Answer: Points to consider.

  • Check with your Audiologist to be certain you have the correct size and best batteries for your aids.
  • Batteries have a peel-off tab that keeps them from discharging. Once the tab’s peeled and the batteries activate, they can’t be deactivated. Be certain your battery is fresh with tab recently removed.
  • Allow two minutes after removing the tab for the battery to acquire a complete charge before closing the battery door.
  • Turn off your hearing aids when not in use and completely open the battery door to help your batteries last.
  • Protect your devices from moisture of any kind.
  • Finally, keep in mind that choosing rechargeable hearing aids eliminates the battery replacement issues.
