Batteries should never be forced, as this can damage the hearing aid.
(PRWEB UK) 27 April 2013
Following an increase in enquiries, Hidden Hearing has published information on how to replace batteries in hearing aids.
Battery Life depends on the type of hearing aid you have, how much it has been used, how high the volume is set and the quality of the battery that’s installed. Hidden Hearing explains:
- Hidden Hearing only supplies top quality batteries, but batteries can run out with very little warning since they don’t fade. Instead, they keep their power until the end of their life. To make sure it is always possible to hear, it’s advised to carry one or two spares at all times if possible.
- It is important to become familiar with the hearing aid manufacturer’s booklet and follow the instructions when removing and replacing batteries. Batteries should never be forced, as this can damage the hearing aid.
- Keep batteries out of reach of children and animals to avoid accidental ingestion as well as ensuring batteries are not kept near any water, heat or sprays as these can damage the batteries and reduce their performance. Because of this, hearing aids should never be worn in the bath or shower.
- Cosmetics such as hair spray, aftershave, perfume and so on can damage a hearing aid so it is important to take out a hearing aid before using them.
