Hearing Aid Batteries – Selection Guide
How do I know which battery to order for my hearing aid?
Hearing aid batteries are standardized with number and color codes to make it easy to find what you need. The easy-to-remember codes are 675 (Blue), 13 (Orange), 312 (Brown), and 10 (Yellow).
Not sure which color or number battery fits your hearing aid?
Ask your hearing health care professional that fit your hearing aid.
How long will a battery last?
Hearing aid batteries will typically last about 5-7 days depending on the size of the battery, model hearing aid, and the demands of the location where you use them. The more active your environment, the more battery power will be used.
Why don’t these batteries last longer?
Hearing aids perform millions of calculations per/sec to shape sound correctly for your listening needs. They do this almost instantly throughout the day. Sometimes hearing aid batteries are compared to a watch batteries. A watch battery may last years, but they perform the same simple ticking function every day. Just think how much more pleasure you get out of being part of the conversation than knowing what time it is.
How to avoid running out?
Keep a month’s supply of batteries on hand for your hearing aids.
Where should you store your hearing aid batteries?
The best place is in a cool dry area, like a drawer or cabinet in your home. Hearing aid batteries like room temperature—just like you. Make sure to keep hearing aid batteries away from your medications. Also, it’s not a good idea to keep batteries in the refrigerator. Condensation and moisture in the refrigerator can harm batteries.
