RayOVac - Hearing Aid Batteries
Hearing Aid Batteries 312
Hello, it's Sherdy back in the saddle again, except this is the 2.0 version of me. I'm calmer, cooler, and more collected, except when someone or something needs called out.
I have a $2000 hearing aid. The batteries for it are between $11-16 in the store. I bought a 16 pack of RayOVac's batteries. Of the 16, 4 worked. I wrote the company. They quickly wrote back and said that the voltage on them drops and that I have to give them a bit of time to work.
Well, I seriously thought there was a problem with the hearing aid because I put the battery in, stuck the aid in my ear, went about my business for 15 or more minutes and nothing. They expire in 2014. The company has promised to send me more, which is why this isn't a complaint, and I wrote again two weeks later to ask about them, but they said they would send me some when they were in stock. Again, this isn't a complaint...yet. I bought another brand and the aid worked perfectly. This is why I am writing.
I also don't believe the hooey about the "time factor" and the battery's voltage needing to get amped up. I expect to take the little tab off, stick it in the aid, stick the aid in my ear and be on my way. As is, I went through 3/4s of the pack before I found one that worked. Folks, question the battery before you think it's an issue with your device.
