Hearing Aid Accessories
As hearing aids is vital to hearing rehabilitation, hearing aid accessories can keep your hearing aids working well for best performance. Hence, it needs to understand not only hearing aids but also hearing aid accessories, its care and uses.
The most common hearing aid accessories can be listed as below:
Hearing Aid Batteries
There are different models and types of hearing aid batteries. The most commonly used hearing aid batteries are zinc air batteries with advantages such as large capacity, affordable in price, and smaller pollution to the environment, etc. The zinc air type battery lifetime varies and depends on the hearing aid models. Very powerful hearing aids use more power than less powerful hearing aids. It also depends on the settings of the hearing aid and its use. Before using the battery, it should first remove the adhesive label to allow air into the battery to work. For unused batteries, it should be stored in a dry place to prevent moisture affecting normal operation.
Small Battery Tester
The small bettery tester is used to test the power of the hearing aid batteries. To test the power of hearing aid batteries, it should put the battery into the recess and LED light indicates fully charged. For dimly light or not light, it indicates that the battery needs to be replaced.
Hearing Aids Moisture Beads
Hearing Aids Moisture Beads is mainly used to absorb moisture from your hearing aid, prolonging its lifetime and increasing its sound quality. Hence, it must be replaced regularly. Before going to bed, it should switch off your hearing aid, remove the battery, and place the hearing aid (with the ear molds) inside the air-tight seal box with the hearing aids moisture beads. Your hearing aid can be used again in the next day.
Hearing Aid Dehumidifier (Electric Hearing Aid Dehumidifying System)
Hearing Aid Dehumidifier not only offers superior dehumidifying function but also enhances the hearing aid sound quality, hence greatly reducing the number of repairs. Moreover, the built-in UV light can kill 99% of common bacteria in the ear canal and reduce the infection caused.
Disinfection spray can effectively eliminate the accumulation of bacteria in the ear mold or hearing aid shell to keep good hygiene. Before going to bed, it should use it on a dry cloth or paper towel to wipe the ear mold or hearing aid shell.
It should conduct a weekly thorough clean on the ear mold to keep good hygiene. For cleaning the ear molds, you may apply a small amount of detergent, soak it for ten minutes, and then wash it with water. After flushing the ear molds, you may use earmold pump to eliminate the water inside. When the ear mold is dry, you may continue to use the ear molds and headset.
Ear wax build-up can fully or partially block sound output and cause your hearing aid to underperform.
By using an ear wax guard, you can protect your hearing aid from ear wax build-up, and maintain its performance. It needs to clean daily by a special tool (supplied with hearing aids). We recommend you change it if you can visibly see a build-up of wax, or you notice the performance of your hearing aid deteriorates. We suggest you check it on a daily basis.
