Read the quick tips below to gain a better understanding of how to care for these incredible devices:
Imagine how much power it takes to process all of the sounds around you 24/7 and you’ll begin to understand how crucial battery power is to your hearing aids. Depending on your specific model, you may find that you use a fair amount of batteries each month, but every situation will be different.
Some styles offer rechargeable options, giving you the convenience of never having to worry about changing your device’s batteries again. Yet in most cases, you can expect to change your hearing aid batteries every 5 to 21 days depending on the style, battery size, and how frequently you use your devices. To help extend your battery life, try the following options:
Never place batteries in your mouth. If a battery is swallowed, call the battery ingestion hotline printed on the back of each pack of batteries immediately. While not toxic, they can cause a severe burn to mucous membranes .
Recommended by several hearing aid manufacturers and made by Varta Microbattery of Germany, they have a reputation within the hearing aid industry as a top quality, long life battery.
Also sold under the PowerOne label, they are only available locally from some offices where hearing aids are fit. We are able to offer these batteries at a very competitive price–$5.00 per package of 6–or get 10% off a carton of 10 packages (buy 9 get 1 free). This is a real value compared to brands found at local pharmacies and discount stores. They fit right in with our “high quality, best value” philosophy. Don’t pay more, get more!
We recommend caution if you purchase batteries online. You may never know if they have been stored in a hot warehouse (which can affect battery life), or if their long shelf life is about to expire.
We also have PowerOne rechargeable batteries for the older Signia/Siemens rechargeable product line (they also work for Rexton and Miracle Ear).
