How to change a hearing aid battery

The videos below offer tutorials on how to change the battery in a behind the ear hearing aid


When you first receive your hearing aid you will also be provided with batteries. You can obtain replacement batteries from the Resource Centres, hearing aid maintenance clinics directly or via post.

You can also get batteries by post by sending a self-addressed stamped envelope to AFD Resource Centre in Haywards Heath or Worthing.

Place 2 standard rate stamps or 1 large letter stamp on the return envelope.


If you are an AFD patient with private hearing aids, you can purchase batteries at AFD Resource Centres in Haywards Heath and Worthing

You can recycle used batteries at any of the AFD clinics.

Battery life will depend on the type of battery your hearing aids uses, how frequently you use the hearing aid and the strength of your hearing aid. Your audiologist will make you aware of how long your batteries should last with your hearing aids.

The most common battery used, size 13 batteries with the orange sticker, should last approximately 10-14 days.

Your hearing aid will also beep to alert you that the battery needs changing
