3 Simple Tips to Maximize Your Hearing Aid Battery Life

Hearing aids are a game changer for anyone experiencing auditory loss – they help us reconnect with the world around us. But managing your hearing aid battery life is crucial. If you don’t have power, your devices can’t do their job. 

We’ve put together the ultimate guide to battery care, so you never run out of power at the wrong moment. These tips will help you really get the most out of your batteries.

#1 Don’t Take the Sticker Off Too Early

The little stickers on hearing aid batteries prevent air activation until the moment you need them. Once you remove the sticker, the battery starts discharging automatically. This will happen even if the battery isn’t in your device yet, so it’s important not to remove the sticker too early. Peel it off only when you’re ready to insert it so you get the benefit of its full charge.

#2 Check the Expiry Date

Batteries have a limited shelf life, typically around four years. Using batteries past their prime can lead to reduced power and hinder your device’s performance. Make a habit of checking the expiration date before replacing it with a new one.

#3 Consider Rechargeable Batteries

Rechargeable options are becoming increasingly popular – and for good reason. These batteries come with a charging case that can be reused multiple times. They’re generally more cost-effective and environmentally friendly in the long run, too.

How long do rechargeable hearing aid batteries last? Most last up to 20-30 hours between charges. Discuss the pros and cons of rechargeable batteries with your healthcare professional to see if they’re a good fit for your lifestyle and budget.
