The question of just how long hearing aid batteries should be expected to last isn’t as simple to answer, as it seems, because battery performance hinges on many factors. Battery life depends on the model of your hearing aid, and can vary widely across different models created by the exact same manufacturer. The way you use your hearing aid will also influence battery life; the more hours a day it is turned on, the more often you will use up batteries. In addition, there are differences in battery life between battery manufacturers, and the same manufacturer may offer different lines of batteries, some that are supposed to last for a longer period of time than others. Battery life also depends on battery type; for example some types are only discharging power when they are in a hearing aid that is on, and other types (for example, zinc-air batteries) start losing power as soon as you remove the adhesive strip on the bottom of the battery and they’re exposed to oxygen, whether the hearing aid is turned on or not.

Store your unused hearing aid batteries at room temperature, indoors, and in their original, unopened packaging to ensure their longest possible life.
