Hearing Aid Batteries Sizes and Colours
A few years ago, the hearing aid battery industry standardized battery sizes and came up with a color code to help you remember your battery size.
On the back of each battery is a tab that you pull off to "activate" the battery. Each color corresponds to a different size. Now the numbers and colors for each size are all standard. Sometimes you may see other letters after the numbers, but those are arbitrary letters. The most important thing to remember is size and color as noted in the table below.
Orange Tab Size 13
Brown Tab Size 312
Yellow Tab Size 10
Blue Tab Size 675
