Hearing Aid Batteries
I feel at home everywhere because my hearing aids let me hear everything
How do I know which battery to order for my hearing aid?
Hearing aid batteries are standardized with number and color codes to make it easy to find what you need. The easy-to-remember codes are 675 (Blue), 13 (Orange), 312 (Brown), and 10 (Yellow).
How do I know which color or number battery fits my hearing aid?
Your audiologist will tell you what size and color of batteries you need.
How long will my battery last?
Hearing aid batteries will typically last about 5-7 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 will be used.
Why don’t these batteries last longer?
Watch batteries may last years, but require little power to keep ticking. Hearing aids require more power to perform complex functions to amplify sound correctly to meet your needs and the varying listening environments you’re in throughout the day
How can I avoid running out?
Under our Comprehensive Hearing Care Plan, our patients are seen every 4-6 months for routine hearing aid checks. At these visits, your audiologist will provide you with enough batteries to last until your next visit.
Where should I store my hearing aid batteries?
The best place is right where you store your hearing aid at night; in a bedside table. 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. Avoid extremes in temperature too. Hearing aid batteries like room temperature – just like you.
Our audiologists are happy to help you whenever it’s time for you to receive hearing aid batteries. Just ask!
