Just a useless post but amusing .Maybe you have one,too?
The warning I get from my hearing aids when the battery is low is the 4 note intro to Beethoven's 5th.

I just wish my husband would wear his. I hate repeating everything, but he is so stubborn and won't wear them.

Mine too! Costco Resound.

I carry spares now. Streaming from the phone wears them down faster but it's so convenient.

With the Costco price of the batteries, it's hard to get concerned about how long they do or don't last.
What is it? 17 cents or thereabout ?

Costco Phonak here. The Kirkland batteries are fine. They give me all the domes and filters for free.

As long as we're 'here' let me share something possibly helpful.
Don't immediately despair if an aid gets really thoroughly soaked.
Last week mine sat in a bowl of water ( don't ask how) overnight!
The battery wasn't engaged. I put it where it would get air blown on it for about 24 hours...in this case, an air conditioner vent)….held my breath, put it back together and it worked!!

I accidentally washed mine about three years ago. When I was unloading the clothes I found one in the bottom on the washer. The other in the pocket of a pair of jeans. I immediately took them to Costco and they put them in a dryer and gave them a good check. I was lucky that time they still worked.
