Battery Tips


November 8, 2017 Hearing Aids0
  • Store batteries at room temperature in their packaging. Remove the tab only when you are ready to use it.
  • Avoid depleting the battery when you’re not using your hearing aid by opening the battery compartment.
  • Use a dry aid kit during the hot and humid summer months to keep the circuitry and electronic components free of moisture. It is best to remove the battery before using the dry aid kit.
  • Use a new, fresh battery. Batteries lose power as they age.
  • Remove dead batteries from your hearing aids immediately and dispose them in your household trash or check to see if your community recycles hearing aid batteries. Never recharge them or put them in a fire.
  • Keep batteries in their protective package until use. Contact with metal objects such as coins or keys may cause them to short.
  • Always keep your batteries and hearing aids away from small children. If a battery is swallowed, see a doctor immediately. For recommended treatment, call the National Button Battery Hotline at (202) 625-3333. Collect calls are accepted.
  • How long a battery last depends on the hearing aid type, battery type, and the amount and type of hearing aid usage — but typically average 3-10 days for normal use.
