How Zinc Hearing Aid Batteries Work
Batteries are the one big ongoing purchase for hearing aid wearers, so you need to know what batteries you need, and how they work. The most common type of hearing aid battery is the zinc disposable battery, that are activated by the air. All batteries come with an air-tight sticker, so the battery stays inactive until you pull that sticker off to put them into your hearing aids. Once you’ve removed the sticker, the oxygen in the air will interact with the zinc, creating power for your device. Putting the sticker back on doesn’t deactivate the battery, so make sure you only remove the sticker when you’re ready to put them into your hearing aids.
Hearing aid batteries come in a range of sizes, to match the power needs and size of each hearing aid. More powerful hearing aids need larger batteries. These devices are great for people who are running lots of advanced features, or for those with more severe hearing loss. There are four main sizes of hearing aid batteries, but they’re all very small. Even the largest battery is smaller than a dime.
675: The most powerful battery out there is size 675. These batteries have a blue label, and are usually found in behind-the-ear hearing aid models. They have the longest battery life, since they’re big enough to pack a lot of punch.
13: Size 13 batteries come with a bright orange label for easy identification. They’re the second strongest battery, so you find them in some Behind the Ear Models as well. Most commonly, they are worn in in-the-ear hearing aids.
312: These batteries have a moderate battery life, and are one of the most common battery sizes. This is because most receiver-in-canal and in-the-ear hearing aids use this size. Just look for the brown label.
10: Size 10 is one of the smallest hearing aid batteries out there, measuring just 5.8mm by 3.6 mm. These batteries come with a yellow label, and have the shortest battery life. They’re found in small hearing aids, like the completely-in-canal models.
How Long Do Hearing Aid Batteries Last?
Hearing aid batteries last between 3 to 14 days, with smaller batteries having a shorter life. How long a battery lasts depends on your level of hearing loss and how much power you use. Battery life is also affected by how many hours per day you’re wearing your device.
Tips for Maintaining Your Hearing Aid Battery
If you want to get the most out of your batteries, there are a few simple steps you can take. Always turn your hearing aids off at night, and open the battery door to dry any condensation that might have accumulated on the battery overnight. Never store your batteries in the fridge. Zinc batteries will last on the shelf for up the 3 years, and putting them in the fridge doesn’t prolong their life. In fact, it could wreck your batteries if any moisture or condensation gets under the sticker seal. Finally, keep your old batteries and recycle them to keep batteries out of landfills.
