I have been wearing hearing aids for about 9 years now and have found the cheaper batteries only last half as long.
I have tried Philips batteries, they are okay and I have as well tried Dynamic Hearing Aid batteries...
both in my opinion have a low battery life.
My preferred choice lately has been EverReady hearing aid batteries... which ones do you prefer?

I prefer iCell. They last just as long as the Starkey batteries I got with the aids.

I got my first hearing aids a few days ago (one for each ear )
Both hearing aids went dead after about two days but worked well when I put in new batteries. Will I have to replace the batteries that often?

I think, The Best Hearing Aid Batteries on the market currently are Duracell and Energizer.The award-winning Duracell Activair hearing aid batteries feature a unique, longer-tab design, so they are easy to handle – especially for those with limited dexterity.

Costco sells the size 10 Rayovacs (30 count) for $10. Best deal I've found anywhere! They've served me well for the most part. Keep your receipt just in case you get some duds.  Grin

possibly you can make your batteries prone to getting empty so so0n...!
Zinc air hearing aid batteries use oxygen to produce energy to run the hearing aid. Since zinc air batteries contain tiny air holes, certain environmental factors like water vapor can affect battery life. Normally, the concentration of zinc air eloectrolyte will cause the cell to have an internal humidity of 50-60 percent. At lower humidity levels, the cell will lose water, concentrating the electrolyte. Eventually, at this lower humidity level, the cell will lose its effectiveness. When the ambient air has a higher humidity level, the cell takes up water, which dilutes the electrolyte and floods the cathode. Again, the battery cannot function.

This is why the best way to make your hearing aid battery last longer is to minimize water transfer. All zinc air cells have a tab that covers the air holes to insure freshness prior to use. Once the tab is removed, water transfer begins. You can try re-tabbing the cell when the hearing aid is not being used. The effect of re-tabbing will vary based on the ambient environment the battery is subjected to. Re-tabbing will have little effect if your typical battery service life is less than five days, or if the ambient humidity conditions are around 50 percent. Re-tabbing could be very beneficial if your typical service life is longer than 10 days, or if the ambient humidity conditions are either to low (northern climate winters) or too high (non air-conditioned summers).
