Each hearing aid battery comes with a color coded tab that corresponds with the battery size. Before the battery can be placed in your hearing aid you will need to remove the tab by peeling gently.
Remember to let your hearing aid battery sit un-tabbed for ONE MINUTE before placing it into your hearing aid. This step allows air to enter which is critical for use. The hearing aid battery is activated when the zinc within mixes with air from the environment.
After a minute has passed and your battery is properly activated, place your hearing aid battery into your hearing aid with the air holes facing up and lightly close the door.

There are many factors that affect how long a hearing aid battery lasts.
As temperature is reduced, hearing aid battery voltage is lowered, which can reduce battery life.
As the physical size of the battery decreases the amount of space for the ingredients needed to power the battery also decreases. Therefore, the smaller batteries may have a shorter life.
Increased amplification is required with hearing loss severity; this results in reduced battery life.
Increased altitude results in less oxygen in the air creating lowered voltage and reduced battery life.
Features in today’s hearing aids such as wireless streaming and ear-to-ear communication-can reduce battery life 20-30% based on frequency of use
The surrounding noise and volume setting of your hearing aid can both prematurely drain the battery.
Batteries can dry out or take on moisture depending on the humidity level. Both outcomes reduce battery life.
