How to Change a Hearing Aid Battery

Depending on your hearing aid style and how long you wear them — hearing aid batteries can last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. As a device owner, it is important to know how to change your batteries.

Follow these simple steps to replace your hearing aid batteries:

  1. Uncover
    Open your new battery’s packaging and remove the sticky label from the “+” side. Wait a full minute before inserting the battery into the device so that the battery will have time to absorb oxygen and activate. This will ensure the battery provides full power to your hearing aids.

  • Remove
    Open the battery drawer on your device and remove the old battery.

  • Insert

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.

4. Close
Close the battery drawer completely. The device might play a jingle to ensure that you properly replaced and installed a new battery

Bonus tip: Place a towel on the surface that you are changing your batteries on. This way, if for some reason your battery drops — it will not bounce to the floor.
