The smallest of the hearing aid batteries is the size ten or the yellow. This hearing aid battery is typically for the smaller hearing aids such as the CICs or the IICs, which stand for Completely In the Canal or Invisible In the Canal hearing aids. These batteries for an average user will last typically three to five days.

The next size up is the brown 312. You can typically expect this type of hearing aid to last seven to ten days for the average user.

The size most commonly used, especially within NHS hearing aids, are the orange thirteens. Typically this will last most users up to two weeks of continual wearing.

Finally you have the blue 675 battery. This is for a power hearing instrument and will typically last somewhere between seven to fourteen days.

In light of the latest lockdown restrictions in the UK we are changing the way will be providing hearing aid and ear wax removal services until further notice. Given the current infection rates locally we are limiting all face-to-face contact to by-appointment only.

There is a social responsibility for us all to stay at home unless it is absolutely necessary, until at very least the end of January. Please do not attend the clinic without an appointment or without contacting us prior to attending, emergency appointments will only be provided once we have triaged your need by phone.

Where we deem it an emergency, we will assign you a specific appointment time, any bookings will need to be paid for prior to attendance. Subsequently any cancellations are subject to our 72-hour cancellation policy.

Appointment times have been further lengthened in order to allow us time to complete our additional safety procedures. We have introduced the use of fogging equipment between appointments in order to disinfect all surfaces and air completely, to ensure the maximum safety for our patients and staff. Emergency wax removal appointments are therefore subject to a temporary price increase to take into account the additional safety measures required due to the aerosol generating nature of microsuction equipment.
