The results posted in the table below are a tally of voluntary submissions from customers who have purchased our hearing aid battery Trial Test Packs. Trial Test Packs are only available from Microbattery.com and can be ordered for each of the various zinc air battery sizes; 10, 312, 13, 675, 675 high power and 13 high power. A Trial Pack consists of battery samples from up to eight leading manufacturers. The customer has the opportunity to test and evaluate each of the battery brands. Our Survey/Evaluation form (included with the Trial Pack) assists the customer through the evaluation process. For the benefit of hearing aid users, we have published the results of the completed surveys, giving users an indication of which battery brand(s) may provide superior performance for a given hearing aid brand/model.
In the table below, hearing aid brands/models are listed in the first column. The trial results for each battery brand are found in the successive columns. The batteries have been evaluated under three performance parameters.
Sub-column 1 in Blue - Represents the average number of days each battery brand lasted.
Sub-column 2 in Green - Represents the sound quality experienced for each battery brand.
Sub-column 3 in Red - Represents the battery fit into the aid's battery compartment.
Sub-columns 2 & 3 are represented using a bar graph on a scale of 1 to 10 (higher is better). If you see N/D and zero measured in the bar graph, this means no data has been received for this battery brand. This may occur if the brand was not included at the time the Trial Test Pack was sold or if no data was received from the customer.
A hearing aid brand/model having a larger sampling of surveys will provide a more accurate indication of results. While these results provide an indication of which battery brand will perform better in a given hearing aid unit, the actual results for any given user may differ. This is because many factors affect battery performance. Important factors are ambient humidity, ambient temperature, differing drain usage rates between users and differing sound environments. For programmable and cochlear hearing aids, unique mapping programs will also place different drain rate demands on the battery. Individual battery brands will respond differently to the combination of all these factors.
The right way to find the best battery brand for your particular usage conditions and hearing aid is to evaluate the battery brands yourself. We recommend you purchase a Trial Test Pack in order to find the best battery, or if your hearing aid brand/model is listed below, you may want to test smaller selection of the top performing battery brands.
