Hearing Aid Batteries
I feel at home everywhere
because my hearing aids let me hear everything.
Hearing aid batteries are standardized with number and color codes to make it easy to find what you need. The codes are 675 (Blue), 13 (Orange), 312 (Brown), and 10 (Yellow).
The experienced Audiologists at Hearing Care Specialists know exactly what size and color of batteries you need. They may even have a special on batteries for loyal customers like you.
Hearing Aid Battery Life
Hearing aid batteries will typically last about 5 to 7 days (and in some cases can last up to 2 weeks) depending on the size of the battery, your hearing aid model, 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 your hearing aid will use.
You may be wondering why these batteries lose their power so quickly. Hearing aids perform complex functions to amplify the sound correctly to meet your needs and navigate the varying listening environments you’re in throughout the day. Watch batteries, on the other hand, may last years, but require little power to keep ticking.
The complex functions of hearing aids require a lot more power than a watch, but think about how much more pleasure you get out of being part of the conversation versus knowing what time it is.
Hearing Aid Battery Storage
The best place to store your hearing aid battery is right where you store your hearing aid at night or when you take it out. This could be a bedside table or, if you have space, in a drawer in your bathroom. That way the batteries will be there when you put your hearing aids in first thing in the morning. Of course, you may want to keep spares with you in your hearing aid carrying case, too.
And no, it’s not a good idea to keep batteries in the refrigerator. Condensation and moisture can harm them. You should also avoid extremes in temperature, too. Hearing aid batteries like room temperature — just like you.
