BATTERIES – THE POWER BEHIND THE HEARING AID | CLERMONT FL

  1. 1. BATTERIES – THE POWER BEHIND THE HEARING AID What type of hearing aid battery does your instrument need? Hearing aid batteries vary from hearing aid to hearing aid. These zinc air batteries are small, button-like batteries, similar to that in a watch.Coded by number and color, batteries are easy to find at yourhearing healthcare provider’s office and pharmacies. Yourprovider should indicate to you the number and color associatedwith your hearing instrument’s battery at the time of yourhearing aid fitting. Standard number and color coding systemsare used across battery brands. NUMBER STICKER OR PACK COLOR 10 Yellow 13 Orange 312 Brown 675 BlueThese batteries should provide between 10-14 days of powerwhen worn daily from the time you get up until going to sleep atnight. Most modern hearing aids will indicate low battery with aspecific beep or talking notification. As the battery gets weaker,you may notice a drop in sound quality.
  2. 2. If you battery dies, your hearing aid will no longer work. Batterytesters are handy to keep around to check your power as needed.Battery insertion and removal may take time to master. Zinc airbatteries for hearing aids are quite small and may be difficult tomaneuver. You will notice that all of these batteries have a flatpositive side and a beveled negative side. A small color codingsticker will be on the flat side. Remove this sticker tab, and placethe battery flat side up into the battery door. Never put thebattery directly into the hearing aid unless indicated to do so byyour hearing healthcare provider! Carefully close the door. Thedoor should close easily without force. To remove the battery,open the battery door and gently slide out or drop out the usedbattery. Magnets may be helpful to aid in sliding out thebatteries.Remember that your battery is a zinc air, activated by exposureto air. Once you removed the sticker, your battery will begin todrain immediately. Placing the sticker back on will not stop yourhearing aid battery from draining.
