My typical daily wear time is around 15-16 hours. Sorry, but I can't answer the rest of your questions.
    Thanks for your feedback.

    I am not upset. The dead horse refers to probably a half dozen threads on batteries. Its a very popular topic.

    I did get about 70 batteries, and now I'm trying to understand if they are in good shape or not, as the voltage of some of them seems marginal. I don't know how knowledgeable you are about batteries, since you didn't offer any advice in this thread, but storage is important. If during transit or in a warehouse the temperature goes to extremes, the life of the batteries may be considerably shortened, and the "best use by" date becomes meaningless. P.S. because English is not my mother tongue, I always need to look these things up, but did you misspell "holy crap" intentionally?

    I have found a good thread with a lot of information (good and bad) on this subject: http://www.hearingaidforums.com/show...of-our-Members
    P.S. as I wrote above, because English is not my mother tongue, I always need to look these expressions up: beating a dead horse means "to ​waste ​effort on something when there is no ​chance of ​succeeding"; in my case I'm trying to get information about a topic that is very popular according to you.

    The batteries are either in spec or they are not. Use up whatever you have or return them. Then order Power One batteries from Amazon 60 for $16 or $31 both have free shipping. Batteries are what they are just enjoy your aids and move on.
