Many factors can influence how long each hearing aid battery lasts. The type of hearing aid, the amplification power, and the available features all play a part in battery length. For example, more hearing aid power is required when streaming television or music. Standard hearing aid batteries can last between 3 to 22 days.

Our hearing aid batteries are air-activated, which means they do not begin working until the coloured tab is removed and air enters the battery cell. Remove and discard the tab only when you are ready to use the battery. The tab cannot be reused.
When not in use, it’s suggested to turn off the hearing aid batteries. To do this all you need to do is open the battery door. The added benefit from leaving the battery door open is that it allows any excess moisture to dry out, this helps extend the life of your hearing aid batteries and your hearing aids.
The ideal temperature for hearing aid batteries is between 10 and 25°C, so it is recommended to keep them in a dry area inside at room temperature.
Due to the small battery size, ensure they are kept out of reach around children.
Get the most out of your hearing aid batteries by turning them off at night and reducing your streaming of television or music.
There are also rechargeable hearing aids such as the ampli-energy, which utilise lithium-ion technology so you can charge your hearing aids overnight like you would with a phone. If changing the batteries on your hearing aids becomes difficult to manage, please speak with a qualified hearing specialist who can explore if rechargeable hearing aids would be suitable.
