Maximizing battery life
AA Hearing Aid Center wants you to get the most from your hearing aid battery life. Follow these tips to maximizing battery life.
Wash your hands before changing batteries. Oils and moisture from your hands aren’t good for the battery or the hearing aid. Always wash your hands before handling your hearing aid batteries.
Store your hearing aids with the battery door open and the device in the “off” position. This will minimize drain on the battery when not in use.
Remove batteries from your hearing aid if you won’t be using them for an extended period of time. This prevents corrosion.
Also, don’t store your hearing aids in the bathroom. The humidity and moisture from showers can speed corrosion and shorten battery and hearing aid life.
Store your extra batteries at room temperature. Storing batteries in the refrigerator can expose them to condensation, and moisture causes corrosion.
Take your time when you install new batteries. Zinc-air batteries need exposure to air to fully activate. Remove the tab and wait five minutes before installing the battery. This single tip can increase the longevity of your batteries.
