Size 312 Hearing Aid Batteries FAQ
Do you offer Mercury Free 312 Hearing Aid Batteries?
Yes! Most hearing aid battery companies are slowly transitioning completely over to Mercury Free as it’s better for the environment, and in some places in the world, due to local legislation. The Power One 312 batteries are mercury free and are compatible with all hearing aids that take a 312 battery. All 312 hearing aid batteries need to comply with the IEC standard which demands that they need to work while the hearing aid is streaming continuously for 15 minutes. This draws a very high current from the battery and only the very best brands, which we stock at Hearing Choices, will function without the hearing aid shutting down.
Why are Zinc Air the best 312 hearing aid batteries?
Hearing Aids are a medical device and many people depend on them day in and day out. Unlike other battery technologies, Zinc Air are ideal for hearing aids as they have a flat power curve, meaning they slowly drain and provide constant power until the battery dies. They don’t lose current as the battery dies, like other battery technologies, which means you hearing aids will function until you replace the battery with a fresh set.
How should i store my 312 Batteries when not in use?
You shouldn’t remove the tab from the hearing aid battery until it’s ready for use. Zinc Air batteries use air as a power source, and therefore the tab should stay on the hearing aid until you are ready to put them in the device. When you are not using the batteries they should be stored at room temperature, away from direct sunlight and in a place that is not humid. We do not advise to store your spare 312 hearing aid batteries in your Bathroom or Refrigerator as it may reduce their shelf life. The ideal temperature range for storing hearing aid batteries is 10c – 25c.
