How often should you replace hearing aid batteries?

How often you replace your hearing aid batteries will depend on a number of things like how long you use your hearing aids each day, the type of hearing aids you have, and the type of batteries you use. Have a look at the table below to get an idea of the typical lifespan of hearing aid batteries, as well as some handy tips about how to preserve battery life.

Hearing aid battery prices

Specsavers hearing aid batteries are available in four sizes – 10, 312, 13, and 675. Each size comes in a pack of 60, for only £11.99. So far so good. Even better, you can get your batteries delivered right to your door. Just choose your size and we’ll do the rest.

When you buy your hearing aids at Specsavers, you’ll get four years’ worth of hearing aid batteries included, as well as other great benefits as part of our hearing aid package.

Which hearing aid batteries do you need?

Batteries are standardised within the industry and will fit most hearing aids. So you don’t need to worry about having the same brand as your hearing aids, or that you didn’t get your hearing aids with us – you can still buy your batteries from our online store.

Choosing battery sizes can get confusing, as certain manufacturers will have different names for their products.

But as each manufacturer is required to follow the colour-coded system, you’ll always know which is the right size for you, no matter what brand you choose.

The four main sizes of hearing aid batteries are identifiable by the colour of their tabs – yellow, brown, orange and blue. So when you’re buying batteries for your hearing aid, all you need to look out for is your colour.

How long do hearing aid batteries last?

The shelf life of hearing aid batteries will depend on the size of the battery, the hearing aid type, and how you use your hearing aid. For example, how loud it is and how long you wear them each day. Generally, the larger the battery, the longer its lifespan.

Keeping your batteries stored safely

If you live with, or care for, anyone under the age of five or an adult with additional risk factors, it’s really important to make sure that your batteries are stored safely and out of reach. If swallowed, it should be treated as a medical emergency.
