Frequently Asked Questions

Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.
The main difference between a zinc battery and an alkaline battery is the type of electrolyte used in both batteries. Because of the composition, an alkaline battery delivers more energy than a zinc battery. Both batteries should thus be used in different appliances.
Assuming your device isn’t faulty, causes may lie in either improper contact with the terminal or in the batteries themselves.
You’re always allowed to board the plane with your hearing aid batteries in the device. For regulations on bringing spare hearing aid batteries, please consider contacting your airline.
0006P is a 9V (square) battery and is also designated as a 6F22 (Zinc carbon) or 6LR61 (Alkaline) battery.
In general, appliances are designed to match the characteristics of dry batteries and to work within the voltage range of 1.5V to 0.9V. Thanks to this characteristic, Ni-MH rechargeable batteries can be used in appliances which require alkaline batteries, even with lower initial voltage. 
Cycle life is the number of times the rechargeable battery can be recharged.
Each battery has specific characteristics, depending on their chemical composition. Zinc carbon is a cheap battery for basic low-drain devices. Alkaline deliver good, dependable power (usable for any type of device, depending on the alkaline type). Lithium technology is a stable technology for smaller, yet demanding appliances. Zinc Air provide long-lasting, continual power.
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.
As zinc air hearing aid batteries operate differently than other batteries they have different characteristics. In winter, rooms may be drier, warmer or badly ventilated. These effects can disturb the performance of your batteries.
Empty batteries should always be recycled. You can bring your batteries to a recycling point near you, free of charge.
