To provide you with crystal clear amplification, digital hearing aids are powered by specifically designed batteries. These little power plants will last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months depending on the particular hearing aid and your particular use (for more information see our blog post on How Long Do Hearing Aid Batteries Last).
Although hearing aid batteries are very affordable, the following tips are designed to prolong their usable service enabling you to get the most out of your device.
How to Reduce your Hearing Aid Batteries Costs:
- When not in use, switch your hearing aid off by opening the battery door - Certain activities will not require you to wear your hearing aid. When the device is removed and placed in its safe place, remember to switch it off to save battery life.
- Use dedicated hearing aid batteries - Companies which specialise in batteries for hearing aids, such as Rayovac, design their range of products specifically for hearing aids. This helps ensure higher power while increasing the life of the battery, and that you get the power you need when you need it most.
- Store your hearing aid indoors - Exposing the hearing aid to extreme temperatures can speed up the depletion of the battery. Certain temperatures, either too hot or too cold might expedite the depletion of the battery which is easily avoidable if you store it at room temperature (have a look at our blog post on How to Store Hearing Aid Batteries).
- Compare prices - Prices for batteries will vary from one retailer to the next. Do not feel that you have to purchase batteries from your hearing aid supplier. Price compare against your local retailer as well as online suppliers - take a look at our competitive prices.
If you follow the simple rules above you will get more out of your batteries and more from their performance in your hearing aids.
