Depending on the hearing aid style and how long you wear them, hearing aid batteries can last anywhere between a few days to a couple of weeks. As a device owner, it is important to know how to change your batteries. Below are a few simple steps to replacing your hearing aid batteries:
After taking the battery out of the packaging, remove the sticky label from the “+” of the new battery. Wait a full minute before inserting the battery into the device so that they battery can have time absorb oxygen and activate. This will ensure they will have full power in your hearing aids, and will last awhile.
Insert the new battery into the drawer. Be sure that the “+” is facing upward. If you have installed the batteries correctly, closing the door of the drawer will be easy. If closing the door is difficult, check to make sure that that the battery is facing the correct way.
Bonus tip: Place a towel on the surface that you are changing your batteries on. If for some reason your battery drops, it will not bounce onto the floor.
