How do I know which battery to buy for my hearing aid?

Hearing aid batteries are standardized with number and color codes to make it easy to find your specific battery. The easy-to-remember codes are 675 (Blue), 13 (Orange), 312 (Brown) and 10 (Yellow).

We are always here to ensure you have all the information you need regarding your exact battery fit specifications. Call us with any questions or concerns.


Length of time the battery will last for? 

Hearing aid batteries will typically last about 5-7 days depending on the size, model, level of hearing loss and the demands of the location you use them in. The more active you are in using your hearing aid determines the length of time the battery lasts. Due to the constant drain on your battery, the battery life is much less than, say, a watch battery that is similar to hearing aid batteries.


How to avoid running out of batteries? 

Simply keep a month’s supply of hearing aid batteries on hand, about eight to ten, and order more once you’re down to four to allow for shipping time.


Where do I store batteries? 

The ideal place to store your batteries is exactly where you store your hearing aid at night – a nightstand or bedroom drawer. That way you know where they are at all times. Another useful tool is to keep some spare batteries in your hearing aid carrying case.

It’s not a good idea to keep batteries in places where condensation and moisture can harm them, such as a fridge or freezer. Avoid extreme temperatures because hearing aid batteries are best at room temperature.
