If you wear hearing aids, you may be frustrated by the short length of time your batteries last. Hearing aid batteries can last from two days to two weeks, and the larger, non wireless, hearing aids often contain batteries that last longer. If you are wearing a hearing aid that connects with other devices via Bluetooth, for example, this may drain your batteries more quickly.
How To Prolong The Life Of Hearing Aid Batteries:
Here at Hidden Hearing, we provide complete aftercare services to help you to care for your hearing aid and to prevent any problems developing. We will advise you on the best way to care for your device, and we are always on hand to help you with any questions you may have.
Follow our essential tips to prolong the life of your hearing aid batteries:
- Avoid moisture. Allow your hearing aids to dry properly when not in use, and ensure that you do not allow moisture to build up inside the hearing aid. Take care to avoid damage from inclement weather.
- Activate batteries. If your hearing aid batteries are made of zinc, wait five minutes after peeling the sticker from a new battery in order to allow it to be activated by the oxygen in the room. If you are not planning to use batteries immediately, do not peel the stickers off as this will deplete the battery power before you begin.
- Store correctly. Take care to store your hearing aids properly when you are not wearing them, ensuring that they are safe from children and animals and that they are not stored near other metal products which may cause short circuiting. Always store batteries away from humid areas.
- Clean your hearing aids and batteries properly. It’s important to pay attention to the advice of your audiologist when cleaning your hearing aids and batteries.
- Use your hearing aid carefully. The functions of your hearing aid can deplete batteries at different rates, so be aware that streaming audio from your television, for example, may use twice as much battery power as normal usage.
When your batteries are at the end of their life, they should be recycled according to local provision. Ask your audiologist what to do with them.
