Changing the batteries is not complicated at all! The batteries in your hearing aids will typically last three to 10 days, depending on usage, which means how much you use them for streaming music, television, and other features. You’ll hear a sound when the battery is running low, so you’ll know it’s time to replace the batteries. This warning period can vary depending on how your hearing care professional has programmed it.
If you need assistance, you can watch this demonstration of how to change the batteries in your hearing aids:
Here are a few useful tips when it comes to changing the batteries:
- Put a little dot or the sticker from your battery in your calendar every time you change the batteries. This will allow you to observe your average battery life and plan for it.
- Change the batteries over a surface such as a table or a tray. That way, if you drop the batteries, you won’t have to rummage around the floor looking for them.
- When you remove the sticker from the battery, we advise that you wait 30 seconds before inserting it. This gives the new battery time to draw air and will help it function optimally.
We hope these tips will help you in your daily life with hearing aids!
