Here’s what you need to know to extend the life of your hearing aid batteries so you can keep your hearing aids working their best.

How long do hearing aid batteries last?

Hearing aid batteries last from 3 to 22 days, depending on how frequently you use them. Other factors, like the type of hearing aid, also contribute to battery life.

How can I minimize battery drain?

Proper care of your batteries can help extend their life. Here are some tips.

  • Turn the hearing aid battery off or open the battery door when you’re not using your hearing aid.
  • Remove the battery completely if you won’t be using your hearing aid for a long period of time, such as during sleep.
