- Your hearing aid should have a battery low warning beep, check with your audiologist if you do not have this
- Your battery should fit easily into the draw in the hearing aid, if you are trying to force it in it may be the wrong way round.
- If you have problems with dexterity using a magnet to lift the battery out of the packet and placing in to the hearing aid draw can be easier on the fingers. Your audiologist may be able to provide you with a tool, or give advice on where to purchase a tool with a small magnet on.
