Hearing Aid Batteries
Hearing aids are powered by zinc air batteries. All hearing aids have batteries and they come in several sizes. It is very important that the batteries are inserted into your hearing aid correctly. At Rocky Mountain Audiology, we will ensure that you understand how to best care for your hearing aids and this includes an understanding of what batteries you will need and how to insert them.
The average life of a hearing aid battery is 5 days -3 weeks depending upon the sizes and power of the hearing aid. Volume control can also effect the life of your batteries.
Batteries currently on the market are what are called “Zinc-Air”. A Zinc-Air battery typically lasts longer that the outdated mercury batteries and are much less toxic to recycle. They come with a protective tab at the top which protects the energy inside the battery from being lost in transport and packaging. You must remember to remove this tab before inserting into your hearing aid. It is best to allow battery to sit 3-5 minutes after you remove the sticker and before closing the battery door.
Hearing aid batteries should be stored in a cool, dry place just like other batteries – however because hearing aid batteries operate at full power until they are fully drained, they tend to lose power quite abruptly. It is always a good idea to carry extra or spare hearing aids – just in case!
Come in to Rocky Mountain Audiology to get quality hearing aid batteries. We are always here to answer any questions you might have.
We provide hearing aid batteries for $29.00 per carton of 10 (total 60 batteries).. If you are looking for batteries you can pick them up at either office or we can send them to you.
