Frequently Asked Questions

Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.

Zinc air battery are different from other batteries. They do not contain active materials in their positive electrode. This type of battery reacts with air - so it’s important to remove the tag before inserting the battery into your device. They provide a current of 1.4V if used correctly.
Panasonic hearing aid batteries, or zinc air batteries, react with air. As soon as you pull off the seal, the battery will be able to release energy. Be sure to let the battery breathe for a few minutes before inserting it into your device.
Immediately head to the nearest emergency room. Avoid drinking or eating before a doctor has provided a decent diagnosis.
Batteries are best stored at room temperature. Extreme heat or cold can significantly reduce battery life.
Lithium batteries can give off a strong energy surge after a long period of low discharge, making them ideal for fire alarms.
In general it’s best to never let your batteries deplete completely. Try to recharge them before the energy level drops below 30%.
Never mix batteries. Mixing batteries causes an imbalance in the energy flow. Some batteries will overcompensate this by discharging faster than usual - greatly reducing their lifespan.
You can, but they’ll perform best in medium- to high-drain devices.
Always remove the tab a few minutes prior to installing it into your hearing aid. This allows the battery chemicals to activate.
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.
