Although hearing instrument rechargeability has become very common and will possibly in future eliminate the use of hearing aid batteries greatly, we are still using lots and lots of Zinc Air hearing aid batteries. Hearing aids need a steady source of power to produce optimal functionality.
Changing Batteries: Depending on how often you use your hearing aids, you may need to change batteries once a week or twice a month. If the following occurs, you should change batteries:
Remember to remove dead batteries since they can swell , become difficult to remove and can damage your hearing aid battery compartment.
Battery sticker/seals: On your new batteries you will find a sticky tab in orange, brown, blue or yellow. These stickers/ seals keep the battery from discharging power, so never remove the seal unless you’re about to use the battery.
Yolande’s battery tips!
Did you know how to check if a hearing aid battery is flat – except with a battery tester?
