Maintaining your hearing aid batteries
This depends on the type of hearing aids you have and the type of batteries they use, as well as how long you wear your hearing aids. A size 10 battery in a hearing aid with lots of advanced features might last between three and five days, whilst a larger, size 13 battery in a hearing aid with simpler functions could last for up to three weeks.
Ensuring the safety of your loved ones is above all when it comes to storing hearing aid batteries. These small but essential power sources can pose risks, especially to young children or those with additional vulnerabilities.
To prevent accidents, always store hearing aid batteries securely and out of reach in households with children under five or individuals facing heightened risks. Accidental ingestion of a battery should be treated as a medical emergency. Remember that hearing aid batteries are not for ingestion and should only be handled by a responsible adult. We recommend keeping them safely stored to promote a secure environment in your home.
Used batteries shouldn’t be thrown away with normal rubbish or recycling. Instead, take them to your local battery recycling point, these can often be found at supermarkets.
