Therefore, this will also impact cell life.

How Long Does Each Hearing Aid Battery Size Last?

Hearing aid battery life is very much down to your actual device. Digital hearing aids are varied and host umpteen different features. As a result, different hearing aids require different sizes of battery to properly power the device to ensure it functions as it should. Ultimately, this affects how long they last and how often you will need to purchase new cells. For example, our HD 91, 151, 230, require size 10 batteries with an estimated 70 hours of cell life. In comparison, our HD 420 digital hearing aid requires a 312 battery with an estimated 185 hours of cell life. Generally, smaller devices such as ITE hearing aids require smaller batteries which offer a short lifespan compared to larger BTE devices which use larger cells.

Which Hearing Aid Battery Size Do I Need?

When you buy a hearing aid, it is likely you may receive a pack of free batteries with it (or at least you do when you buy from us!). Also, it will be clearly indicated to which type and size of batteries which are compatible with your device. Your device can only carry one size and this is fundamental to the design, shape, and size of your device.
  • The smallest are size 10 and therefore are commonly used in small hearing aids of the CIC, ITC and ITE models.
  • Size 13 batteries tend to offer better longevity depending on the hearing aid.
  • BTE hearing aids tend to use size 312 which are the newest.
  • Size 675 cells are the biggest in terms of their size and tend to power the bigger hearing aids and cochlear implant aids.
Again, the above will all influence the battery life which impacts how much you end up spending on batteries.
