Purchasing Batteries For Hearing Aids
For your convenience, Associated Audiologists sells hearing aid batteries at all of our locations. This professional line of batteries is mercury-free and provides superior performance compared with over-the-counter batteries you might purchase in drugstore chains, at shopping clubs, or online. We provide half-off pricing for all our patients.
These professional batteries provide the longest life when used in digital technology with wireless connectivity features found in high-performing hearing aids. This means that although less expensive batteries are available, you may end up spending more to power your hearing aids for an equal amount of time. In addition, less expensive batteries can negatively affect the performance of your hearing aids.
Be sure to talk with your audiologist about which batteries work best with your prescription hearing aids. We offer hearing aid batteries in Leavenworth, Lawrence, Manhattan, Overland Park, Prairie Village, and Shawnee Mission in Kansas; and in Kansas City and Independence in Missouri.
Tips to Get More Life From Your Hearing Aid Batteries
- Before putting your batteries in your hearing aids, remove the sticker and expose them to the air for at least 60 seconds. This charges the battery and can help you get 25 to 30% longer life from your batteries.
- Turn your hearing aids off at night, and when not in use. In addition, it’s recommended to completely open your battery door/drawer at night.
- Batteries frequently have a longer shelf life when stored at room temperature. Don’t keep them in the refrigerator and keep them out of direct sunlight or heat.
- Make sure you’re aware of the expiration date on your battery packaging.
- Always keep spare batteries with you.

Is there a cost savings if I choose rechargeable batteries?
Not at this time. Your initial investment when choosing rechargeable will include the charger and the cost of the first rechargeable battery or batteries. The rechargeable battery life will depend on the type of rechargeable battery used in your device. The annual cost of replacement rechargeable batteries is currently the same as disposable batteries.
