Rechargeable hearing aids

Rechargeable hearing aids have built-in batteries that do not require regular removal. Regular batteries are small and can be difficult to handle, so if you struggle with dexterity then rechargeable aids might be better suited to you.

Almost all our hearing aids are available as rechargeable, but this does come with an additional cost. Talk to your audiology professional about what is right for you.

Tips for rechargeable aids

  • Some chargers are portable which means they hold approximately three days’ worth of charge in the charging unit itself. Perfect solution for weekend getaways
  • If you forget to recharge overnight, rechargeable hearing aids only need approximately 30 minutes of top up charge to get you an extra three hours of wearing time
  • Rechargeable hearing aids offer you the convenience of not having to change batteries meaning they are a more environmentally friendly solution.

Hearing aid batteries

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.

Colours, sizes and brand equivalents of hearing aid batteries

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.

Tips for battery care

  • Don't peel the sticker off your battery until you're ready to use it as the power starts to discharge when it is removed.
  • Turn off your hearing aids when you’re not using them (e.g. while you’re sleeping)
  • Leave the battery compartment door open overnight
  • Make sure you store your batteries at room temperature
  • Avoid keeping them in warm or humid places, like the bathroom
  • The best place to keep your batteries is in their sealed package – not loose in your bag or pocket

How long do hearing aid batteries last?

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