Hearing Loss Help » Hearing Aid Batteries–Regular or High Power?

by Neil Bauman, Ph.D.

Some brands of hearing aid batteries come in standard or high power versions. If your hearing aid is a power aid, then you may need the high power versions. However, if not, then buying high power batteries will not give you extra performance or longer battery life. In fact, they may give you shorter battery life. Here’s why.

According to Elliott Alexander of the Micropower Battery Company , high power batteries are designed to meet the higher current demands of power hearing aids. To design a high power battery, the manufacturer must sacrifice milli-amp hour capacity, so the high power battery will have less capacity than a standard battery.

Thus, if standard batteries meet the current requirements of your hearing aids, then they should last longer than similar high power batteries. This is not to say that high power batteries won’t work in any aid. They will. They just may not last as long and may cost more.

Here’s how you can tell if a battery is a high power battery or not. The letters following the battery size are an indication. For example, number 13 batteries are standard power, while number 13HP (Toshiba), 13EH (Rayovac) and 13P (PowerOne) are all high power batteries. The same letter combinations also hold true for number 675 batteries.

Hearing Loss Help » Hearing Aids

by Neil Bauman, Ph.D.

Has this ever happened to you? You are outside, perhaps playing golf, or rough-housing with your kids/grandkids when you realize you are not hearing much anymore. One ear seems deaf. You clap your hands to your ears, and to your horror, you discover one of your expensive new hearing aids is missing.

You search for it in vain, but your nearly-invisible hearing aid refuses to be found. Now, not only can you not hear, but you are out big bucks to replace it.

This actually happened to Dennis. He had to pay a $650.00 insurance deductible to replace his lost hearing aid. This got him to thinking—and inventing. The result was a set of hearing aid connectors with the catchy name of “Loopum or Loseum”.

These little gizmos are not only effective and nearly invisible, but they don’t cost and arm and a leg either. Would you believe you can prevent your hearing aids from falling off your ears and getting lost for only $5.95? This has to be one of the best bargains around.

Who loses hearing aids? Think rambunctious kids. Think active adults. Think people with Alzheimer’s. Think people in nursing homes and hospitals where hearing aids regularly get lost. Also, think BTE hearing aids that are so small and light you forget you are even wearing them—such as open-fit aids and receiver in the ear (RITE) aids.

The Loopum connectors have two requirements. First, you must wear behind the ear (BTE) or over the ear (OTE) hearing aids. Second, you must also wear eyeglasses. (The Loopums also work with sunglasses.)

If this describes you, or one of your loved ones, maybe the Loopum connectors are for you.

The Loopums are small flexible plastic rings—imagine tiny clear elastic bands—that slide up the temple pieces of your eyeglasses. Then you pull the tube from the hearing aid body (BTE and open fit aids), or unplug it (RITE aids) and thread the tube through the Loopum ring, then reconnect it to the hearing aid body.

Now if one of your hearing aids falls out of your ear, it is firmly held to the eyeglass temple piece. It just hangs there by the Loopum until you put your aid back in your ear. You no longer have to search for lost aids.

The Loopums have another advantage—they stay with your glasses. Thus when you take your glasses off at night, your hearing aids come off with them—and are right there when you put your glasses on in the morning. You no longer have to wonder which aid goes in which ear either.

The same is true when you step into the shower. No more forgetting you are wearing your hearing aids and drown them. When you take off your glasses, off come your hearing aids too.

The only downside I see is that if you want to take yo...
