Hearing Aid Batteries
Zinc-air hearing aid battery product packaging uses a standardized system of tabs which are color coded. Regardless of who the manufacturer is, all batteries of a specific Size (10, 13, 312, 675) will always have the identical color code on their packaging and tabs. Zinc-Air batteries are a type of button cell that use oxygen in the air as a reactant. They have a very high capacity compared to their size. Each cell uses about a cubic centimeter of air per 10Ah discharge rate. While the sealing tab is on the battery, it keeps air out of the battery and gives the battery a 2-4 year shelf life. Once the tab is removed the electrolyte will dry out regardless of use and the battery will stop working within a week or two regardless of use. Fast Free Shipping* | Batteries.com
