Hearing Aid Batteries

Eveready 1016E Hearing Aid "A" Battery

This is an Eveready dual 1˝ volt hearing aid "A" battery used mainly in the vacuum tube hearing aids of the mid to late 1940s.

The 1016E battery weighed 1.0 oz. (30 g), and measured 2" x 1⅛" x 9/16" (5.1 x 2.8 x 1.4 cm).

Front view of the Eveready 1016E showing the battery number and that it is an "A" battery.

This battery is unusual in that there are two cells in one paper cover. The cells are not linked together so it is just two separate 1˝ volt batteries.

In the Western Electric hearing aids Models 64, 65 and 66 (from 1946 and 1947) these cells were connected in parallel to give more current.
