Many of our hearing aids require batteries of various sizes to keep you hearing and get the most out of your hearing aid. Hearing aid batteries vary in size and cost; At Amplifon we will make sure the right battery is supplied and in stock to suit your purchase.
"Hearing aid batteries are the heartbeat of your hearing aids; they are essential to your ability to hear and enjoy the world around you. When you need to replace your batteries, remember they can come in a range of different sizes from several brands, and each type varies in terms of size, compatibility, and lifespan.
Not all batteries will work in your hearing aid: below you can find the key information you need to know before choosing a battery for your hearing aids."
Hearing aid batteries come in four standard sizes: 10, 13, 312 and 675. To help you identify which one you'll need, all manufacturers use standard colour codes on their packaging and zinc air tabs.
"Size 10 batteries are mainly used in mini receiver in the ear (RITE) and completely in canal (CIC) hearing aids. They are 5.8mm x 3.6mm in size and all manufacturers use the yellow colour code to identify them. Their size makes them ideal for use in the smallest hearing aids. Each battery usually lasts for approximately 3-10 days.
Rayovac Batteries size 10, were brought to market in 1986. This made possible the introduction of the smaller hearing aids that are so common today."
Size 13 batteries are most commonly found in behind the ear (BTE) and in the ear (ITE) hearing aids. They are 7.9mm x 5.4mm in size and use an orange colour code. These batteries have a lifespan of approximately 6-14 days.
