Frequently Asked Questions
Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.
Does my battery discharge during storage?
Batteries are chemical products which internally undergo certain chemical processes over time. Due to this process some batteries slightly discharge during storage.
Can Ni-MH batteries be used as an equivalent of Ni-Cd batteries?
In appliances without a charging function, yes. In appliances that do have a charging function, be sure to check whether the function was specifically designed for Ni-MH. If not, it’s best not to use Ni-MH batteries.
When should I recharge my batteries?
In general it’s best to never let your batteries deplete completely. Try to recharge them before the energy level drops below 30%.
How long does a lithium coin battery last?
Battery performance greatly depends on the device and on the conditions.
Can I apply heat to a battery?
Never apply heat to batteries. Keep them away from any heat sources like heaters, candles, stoves and fires. Exposing them to too much heat could cause them to tear, leak or even explode.
How should I use hearing aid batteries?
Always remove the tab a few minutes prior to installing it into your hearing aid. This allows the battery chemicals to activate.
Does Panasonic have LR61/AAAA?

Can hearing aid batteries leak?
While leakage is rare, it may still occur if the battery is used incorrectly. Leakage is usually caused by leaving the battery in an unused device or short-circuiting.
How do I properly change batteries? What should I pay attention to?
Replace all batteries at the same time. Do not mix old and new batteries. Use batteries from the same brand, type and expiry date too.
At what temperature can I use my batteries?
The ideal temperature for our primary batteries is between 5°C up to 45°C.
