Question: Why do I need to open the battery doors on my hearing aids at night?

Answer: Opening the battery door is an easy method of turning off the aids and preserving their battery life when not in use. In addition, it allows air to circulate within the aids to dry them out from daily moisture, humidity, and sweat. Your hearing aids should then be stored in a hard case, which is provided by their manufacturer. This is for protection from pets, breakage, and provides an easy-to-locate routine for you each night. Always remember to close the case to prevent pets from “sampling” your better hearing. Batteries and loss and damage coverage are supplied for the warranty life of the aids with most new hearing aid purchases.
