Hearing aid batteries are one extremely important part of ensuring your hearing aids do their job. When you start using hearing aids, it’s important to make sure you get the most out of their life so you can enjoy the sounds you love most. It’s also important to select the type of hearing aid that fits your lifestyle and that you can accommodate with the right batteries! At our Livingston office, we can ensure your hearing aid battery needs are covered with our expert care and latest battery options.
What Hearing Aid Batteries Do We Offer?
In general, hearing aids use either traditional disposable batteries or rechargeable ones. We offer both options at our Livingston office.
Standard Disposable Batteries
These tiny, disposable batteries are made with zinc and activate once exposed to the air. Hearing aids use four standardized sizes of zinc batteries, which are color-coded according to their size. Larger batteries generally last longer than smaller ones, so your Doctor of Audiology will let you know how often you can expect to change them.
Some of the newest hearing aid models come with rechargeable batteries built in, so you can charge your hearing aids on a special dock as needed. Rechargeable hearing aids are now available in a variety of different styles. Our Doctors of Audiology can help you determine what style and options are the best for your listening and lifestyle needs.
Which Battery Type is Best for Me?
The best type of hearing aid battery for you will depend on factors like your lifestyle and preferences. For instance, rechargeable batteries can last for long periods of time but will need to be recharged before you can use them again. Conversely, disposable batteries can be changed for a fresh charge but can be difficult to replace if you struggle with small objects. Cost can be another factor to compare— with rechargeable batteries, you’ll pay a higher price up front for both the hearing aids and the charging dock. On the other hand, hearing aids with disposable batteries can have a lower cost but you’ll need to purchase your supply of batteries regularly. During your consultation with our Doctors of Audiology, you can discuss which factors are most important to you in order to select the right option.
