Hearing Aid Battery Types

The most common type of hearing aid batteries are the zinc-air battery, which are those tiny disks you also use for watches and other tiny electronic devices. This type of battery cannot be recharged and must be discarded after use.

There are five different sizes of hearing aid batteries. The one that's right for you depends on the shape and size of your hearing aids. Fortunately, the hearing aid industry has color-coded and numbered the battery packaging to make replacing them simpler. The adhesive sticker on the back of the battery is also color-coded.

These conventional zinc-air batteries are widely available in drugstores and electronics stores. They also don't need to be charged at night and are less expensive than rechargeable hearing aids in the short term.

Extend the life of Your Disposable Batteries

Here are some of the easiest ways to make your zinc-air batteries last longer if you have disposable hearing aid batteries.

Turn them at Night

Since you don't wear your hearing aids at night, turn them off. This will help conserve energy.

Reduce Moisture

At night, open the battery door and leave it open overnight. Any moisture or condensation will evaporate, extending the life of your battery.

Reduce Heat and Humidity

Keep your hearing aids at room temperature and out of the bathroom and other humid areas of your home. Humidity and heat will both deplete your battery life.

    Rechargeable Hearing Aids

    Hearing aid technology is progressing. Instead of using disposable batteries that need to be replaced every day, rechargeable hearing aids are becoming more common.

    This is a hearing aid with a built-in battery. All you have to do is charge your hearing aids overnight in a charger, and you'll have a full day's worth of power in the morning. You can also charge your devices in under 30 minutes with some quick charging options.

    Rechargeable hearing aids have several advantages.
