​How long do hearing aid batteries last?

I'm a hearing aid wearer and I have been for many years. One thing that always confounds me is how long batteries last. I've had friends complain about having to change their batteries every week, but then other friends say they use the same set of batteries for months at a time without any trouble. There's clearly no consensus on this subject, so I wanted to find out for myself: How long do hearing aid batteries last?

Hearing aid batteries have improved in recent years, but they're not rechargeable yet.

Hearing aid batteries are not rechargeable, but they can last weeks. They're inexpensive, and you'll likely be able to find them at  Hear-Better.Com,  your local pharmacy or grocery store.

What is the lifespan of a hearing aid battery? The average lifespan of a standard zinc air hearing aid battery is a few weeks. This may vary depending on the volume/gain level, hearing aid type, the battery quality, and how often you use it.

The higher the volume level is set at the faster a hearing aid battery used up.

Batteries in hearing aids without all the bells and whistles may last longer compared to a hearing aid with all the options.

Better made hearing aid batteries will last longer.  I recommend batteries made in Germany and the USA. 

The more and longer you use your hearing aid the faster batteries are used up.

Hearing aid batteries don't last forever, but they can give you weeks of hearing well.

In recent years, hearing aid battery technology has advanced greatly. Batteries are smaller and provide more power than ever before. However, it's still true that you need to replace your batteries every few weeks for optimal performance.

If you have a set of new hearing aids and don't know how long they last, the packaging that comes with your device will tell you. It will either say something like "battery life is approximately three weeks" or "battery life is approximately four weeks," depending on the brand and model of hearing aid you have.


Hearing aids are a great investment for anyone who wants to hear better, and it's easy to see why. But with any new technology, there are always questions about how long it will last or how much it will cost you over time. That's why we've put together this article with all the information you need on hearing aid batteries! We hope it helps clear up any confusion so that when the time comes for you to buy new ones, they'll be hassle-free."
