However, if you are responsible for paying for your own hearing aids, you will also need to buy hearing aid batteries. Luckily, hearing aid batteries are very inexpensive, usually costing between £1 and £3 for a multipack. Depending on the size of your battery and the hearing aids that you wear, this will impact how long your batteries actually last and thus how expensive they become. However, if you are wearing your hearing aids for up to 16 hours a day, a battery should, on average, last between one and two weeks.
Hearing aids and hearing aid batteries do not have to be an unwanted expense – visit your local Scrivens Hearing Care branch to discuss your options with a member of staff.
