During hot summer months with high humidity, hearing aid users should use a dry aid kit to keep the circuitry, electronic components and batteries free of moisture from the air and/or perspiration. Always store batteries at room temperature and never carry loose batteries in a pocket or purse as coins, keys or other batteries may short them out, cause a leak or even rupture them.
