Hearing Aid Batteries

Hearing Aid Battery Sizes

Hearing aid batteries come in sizes 10, 13, 312 and 675. To identify the size, most manufacturers use an industry standard color code on their zinc air tabs and packaging. Manufacturers often place letters before or after the battery size to designate their factory reorder number. For instance, 13A or R13A are both size 13 batteries.



Hearing Aid Battery Tabs

Do not remove the tab until you are ready to use the battery! A zinc air battery uses air outside the battery as a source of power. The factory applied tab seals the air holes in the battery and ensures freshness until you are ready to use the battery. To activate the battery, you simply remove the tab. After removing the tab, wait about one minute prior to inserting the battery into your hearing aid. This allows sufficient time for the air to enter and activate the ingredients. Replacing the tab when the battery is not in use will not extend the battery life.

Hearing Aid Battery Life

Battery life is determined by the type and amplification of your hearing aid as well as the hours you wear your hearing aid. Your hearing care professional can tell you the battery life you can expect.

Hearing Aid Battery Storage

You should store your hearing aid batteries at room temperature. Avoid storing your batteries in hot places since heat will shorten the life of the batteries. Refrigeration is also not recommended. Batteries should not be carried loose in your pocket or purse. If a battery inadvertently comes into contact with a metal object such as coins or keys the battery may charge, leak or in rare incidences even rupture. To prevent this from occurring keep unused batteries in the original packaging or in a battery holder.

Store and discard batteries in places that cannot be reached by infants, children or pets. If a battery is swallowed, see a doctor immediately. For recommended treatment, call the National Button Battery Hotline collect at 202-625-3333.

Hearing Aid Battery Disposal

Batteries that have been fully discharged can be thrown in your regular trash.

Important Battery Tips

  • Keep the tab on your zinc air battery until you are ready to use it.
  • Always carry extra hearing aid batteries with you to avoid losing your hearing at critical times.
  • Store your batteries at room temperature. Avoid storage in hot locations. Refrigeration is not necessary.
  • Ventilate the battery compartment of your hearing aid at night to prevent moisture buildup.
  • Never carry loose batteries in a pocket or purse. Metal objects such as coins or keys can short out the battery.
  • Store and discard batteries in places that can not be reached by infants, children or even pets.

I drive over 60 miles round trip to see Dr. Tom and the staff at Advanced Hearing Aid Center because of the quality of expertise, professionalism and care they provide."

- Jim, Mansfield, TX

People get socially withdrawn from hearing loss. They don't participate in life and then when we get them hearing better, they get involved with people again and with their activities they withdrew from, and it just adds a lot to their lives. That's what we're about, and that's what we want to do -- help people reconnect with life through better hearing."

My rooster started crowing louder, my floor started squeaking, my clock ticks with volume—all because of my fantastic new hearing aids!"
