Replacing Your Hearing Aid Batteries


If your Receiver-In-The-Canal (RIC) hearing aids use a battery, you’ll have to replace the batteries on a regular basis.

Battery Placement Instructions

Typically if your hearing aid uses a 312 battery, it will provide approximately 6-10 days of battery life before needing to be replaced. Hearing aids do not have an on/off switch, so to conserve battery life, you should open the battery door to disconnect the circuit when the device is not in use.

When it’s time to change the battery, follow these steps:

  1. Open the battery door at the base of the sound processing unit (if not already opened).

2. Using your fingers or the included magnetized cleaning brush, take out the dead battery from each hearing aid.

3. Place a fresh 312 battery with the removable sticker facing up into the battery slot.

4. Peel off the sticker and close the battery door until you hear a click (if immediate use is needed)
