Anyone know where to get AAAA batteries that are for a hearing aid remote (no, not AAA)? Or where a hearing aid shop/outlet is?

Good Answer Grant marked this as a good answer

Ok. Seriously.

Crack open an alkaline 9 volt battery like the ones for transistor radios. You are old enough to know what I'm talking about.

You will find 6 aaaa batteries inside. Alkalines only. Duracell type.

They are all over the place.

The remote volume control has a physical size that only fits this particular sized battery.

I am not a dunce.

Yes mate. Take the AAAA batteries out of the 9 volt casing and use them in your hearing aid remote. Second suggestion: walk around in front of the French Hospital on Phuong Mai street. Many medical device stores. Look at the Wikipedia article. It is quite clear.

Thanks for the offer but after realising that I hadn't pulled batteries to bits since I was a kid 'just to see what makes them tick' I realised that I had never actually assaulted a new fangled Alkaline battery, because they were not around then, but only the old zinc-carbon ones. They just have a stack of six block cells in them.

The 9V Alkaline batteries do indeed have six shiny AAAA batteries inside them.

Now I need to modernise and strip down a few other types to see what's in them. If you see me with my eyebrows burnt off you'll know what happened....

I used to use a hearing aid when I attended meetings in Canada, because I was afraid I might miss something important that someone had to say (invariably I didn't miss anything). Anyway, I brought it with me when I came to Vietnam. I managed to find batteries for it at a shop on Hang Dao street. However I found that I was hearing much more here than I wanted to hear, so I put it away. It's easier (and less painful) to say "excuse me, could you repeat that" or "please - speak slowly".
