There are a number of factors that can influence the life of your hearing aid batteries. Such factors include, but are not limited to, the age of your hearing devices, the programming of your devices, how often you use them, and the size of your batteries.
The following tips may help prolong the life of your batteries:
- Always be sure to open your battery doors when not using your devices.
- Wait to remove the tab of the battery until you are ready to use it.
- When you remove the tab, allow the battery sit for approximately 3 minutes before putting it in your device. This allows it to reach it’s full charge.
- Store your batteries at room temperature, not in the refrigerator.
- When carrying extra batteries with you, do not carry them loose in a purse or wallet where they can come in contact with each other or with other metal objects (keys, coins, etc.). Coming in contact with such objects may cause the batteries to short-circuit. Carry them either in the package they came in or in a battery caddy.
