Re: Hearing Aid Battery Problem
This depends on how much energy and power the hearing aid needs, how often you use it and what type of hearing aid it is. Some batteries may last days while others can last weeks. Consult your hearing professional and read through information supplied by your battery manufacturer to ensure that you follow the steps to maximize the life of the batteries.

First you turn down your hearing device and open the latch on the inner side of the hearing aid,take out the old battery,then you simply pop in the new battery,shut the latch and put it right back into your ear.Then turn it on of course and your good to hear again.
The Bolero model requires clear passage of sound through the tube that connects it to the dome/tip that fits into your ear. To determine if the tube is blocked, with a good battery inserted and the battery door closed, unscrew the top of the tube where it connects to the hearing aid. If you cup the hearing aid in your hand, it should whistle/feedback. If not, there is something wrong with the hearing aid. If it does whistle, your audiologist should have provided you with a thin, flexible plastic piece (often green) and instructed you how to unscrew the tube at the top of the hearing aid to run the plastic piece through the tube, all the way out the other end of the dome/tip. If that piece can travel the entire tube easily, then sound should be able to. In any case, a Phonak hearing aid has at least a one year manufacturer warranty (a Q90 likely has a three year) and they will pay for shipping both ways to fix it. You need to send it via an audiologist, though.
First you should probably keep your hearing aid and battery away from water.I suggest taking it out while in the shower/bath and cover your head with a hood or umbrella while out on a rainy day.If battery keeps shutting down then replace the old battery with a new one.If problem keeps accorring then maybe its time to take your hearing aid into your local hearing aid repair and let them solve the whole issue with why it keeps shutting down
Using a magnifying glass or eye loop, check for wax build up in the output (hole in hearing aid that is closest to eardrum). I have in-channel type hearing aids. The hearing aid audiologist gave me "wax gaurds" to prevent wax buildup in the output hole. If you have any wax in the hole, try to remove it by using a small wire loop - (a shape like a square "u") and scoop the wax out. If that doesn't help, the hearing aid may need to be professionally cleaned. Lastly, as my mom would say, "clean out your ears"
i'm not aware of a tool to change batteries but Eveready sells hearing aid batteries that have a magnet on it so that you can put them in you aid easier. You can buy them at Walgreens ir CVS.
