Frequently Asked Questions

Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.
Expiry date indicates how long the battery will function properly according to industry standards.
The memory effect is an occasional defect, which occurs in Ni-Cd and Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, where the maximum battery voltage decreases even though the original power of the battery remains the same.
They do. We guarantuee performance for up to three years after production. After this we cannot guarantee the battery will perform as well as it’s supposed to.
Mixing batteries causes an imbalance in the energy flow. Some batteries will overcompensate this by discharging faster than usual - greatly reducing their lifespan.
Panasonic hearing aid batteries, or zinc air batteries, need air to work. As soon as you pull off the seal, air will flow into the battery, making it able to release energy. Be sure to let the battery breathe for a few minutes before inserting it into your device.
Replace your battery as soon as your hearing aid no longer functions properly. If this happens unusually soon, consider checking if contact between the battery and the terminals inside is faulty.
Perhaps you are using a different battery type. Zinc carbon will perform otherwise compared to alkaline, for example.
Due to chemical reactions inside most batteries, the stored charge of the batteries is reduced little by little. This phenomenon is called self-discharge.
This should be avoided at any time. When the battery has been in a washing machine, it is no longer fit to use. Please dispose of this battery.
