How To Properly Install Hearing Aid Batteries

There has been a great amount of innovation in hearing aid batteries over the last decade. To help you maximize the length of your batteries we suggest the following habits:

  • Always store your hearing aid batteries in a cool and dry environment (not your fridge!)
  • When installing new zinc-air batteries make sure to take the tab off of the battery and allow it to sit 5 minutes before closing the battery door.
  • At night when you remove your hearing aids make sure to open the battery door. The battery will still be discharging just at a lower rate.
  • Avoid storing your hearing aids in extreme temperatures as this will contribute to shortening the battery life of your hearing aids.

By following these tips you should gain the maximum amount of use out of each battery. For information on how long you can expect your hearing aid batteries to last, visit our helpful article located here.
