Battery tip for Baha sound processors

Comment: Battery tip, if you wait for 5 minutes after pulling of the sticker of the battery before installing the battery in the Baha, the battery last 2 days longer. It has to do with activating all the chemical in the battery. Good luck Danny

Answer: Hi Danny. The typical battery for hearing aids and sound processors is based on the addition of oxygen to start the chemical reaction process. To obtain best results, you should allow around a minute between the removal of the small sticker and turning on the sound processor. For most people, by the time you have removed the sticker, placed the battery in the sound processor, returned the battery drawer and placed the sound processor on your head, this will take more than a minute.

One additional thing to remember is once you remove the sticker, the chemical reaction starts. So please do not remove the stickers to make it easier later on, as you may find the battery to be flat! The length of time a battery lasts depends on a number of factors such as how often you use the sound processor, how large your hearing loss is and how much you use streaming technology (e.g. the wireless Mini Mic).

    • Thanks Danny.
      Since we are not a battery manufacturer we cannot comment on external tests we haven’t conducted ourselves. Our recommendations remain the same as stated in the user manual; that battery life depends on daily use, volume and program settings, low temperatures, wireless streaming etc. and to turn the sound processor off when not in use to maximise battery life!
