Samba Battery

Recommended Posts

Hey Gang, just curious if anyone with a Samba can tell me what size batteries it takes? For example my hearing aid takes a Size 312 (Brown) battery. I don't get my Samba for a while, as I just got the bone bridge put in last Thursday. I am just trying to find the best place to get the batteries from in the town I live in.

THANKS!

I believe it uses zinc air 675 but wait until someone else confirms this before you purchase batteries.

Well med el was smart to make the battery the same for all implants.

yeap - 675 BUT try to find so called Implant batteries. This type should better serve than just the regular type of 675.

I usually take Power One although I have also RAYOVAC Implant batteries. DURACELL are also very good batteries. ;)

Not sure if Samba will have the same, many implantees are saying the have been given batteries. So look into that first before buying any.

Pardon me, perhaps I haven't understood you well but Samba has 675 battery. Not sure whether there is any difference between the regular and implant type batteries since I didn't have opportunity to test it. I draw the conclusions from your observations with a CI.

Ahhh... Pardon me - my school-english couldn't process your thoughts. ;)

 

I am lucky so my insurance covers batteries for me :D , although not the device.  :huh:

Mine doesn't. So the next choice will be rechargeable or not? Hey I'll start a new topic!

Remember that rechargeable 675 batteries has much shorter working time.

Regular rechargeable 675 batteries that reportedly are not worth the expense are different from the Med-El rechargeable batteries for the Sonnet.

Yeah - it was a rhetorical question because I am not aware of the fact that we have special rechargeable batteries. Also, can Bonebridge use rechargeable batteries for Sonnet - this is also unknown to me.  :huh:
