    Wanting longer battery life?

    Hearing Aid batteries are made of zinc. There are tiny holes on the positive side of the battery that allow oxygen in when the colored tab is removed. Manufacturer's are now saying that it is best to remove the tab and let the battery sit on the counter for a full two minutes before inserting it into your hearing aid. This time allows the battery to absorb enough oxygen to reach its full potential. The battery will last longer too. Make sure that the battery does not touch metal during the two minute wait time.
