Default Costco's Hearing Aid Batteries

Anyone else here notice how unreliable Costco's hearing aid batteries are?
Costco's Kirkland brand products are usually very good quality but the hearing aid batteries are just plain crappy imo.
I'm looking for a good reliable source, other than the drugstore, that won't break the bank.
What do you use?

I have noticed they last about 2-3 days less than the other brands but they cost at least 50% less so I will still buy them over the name brand sold by my hearing aid manufacturer.

I am almost through my first batch of their batteries. So far so good. I just change mine every Sunday. Now the Duracell's [we used to buy there].... that's a different story.

I get a lifetime supply from my ear doc (I should given the price of the aid!) they are Duracell #312's and they typically are good for 4-5 day's use.

Duracell size 13. My right aid uses batteries quicker than the left. I guess the right one hears more.

Got my hearing aid from Costco as well as rhw 48 pack batteries. A pair will last about two weeks weather I use the aid or it sits in the case. Still can't get use to wearing them.

My batteries bought from Audiologist last 2 weeks using every day - they take a while to get used to I had mine dialed down a bit at first and cranked up later at a follow up once used to them. You can turn volume down which helps with "crackles" at first.

Some of Costco's do last longer. They are inconsistent pack to pack which is very much not normal to Kirkland Brand products.

Is battery life tied to the individual aid's setting for a particular person? I can alter my aid via a telephone app (ReSound 3D) for different environments. I wonder if they use more battery depending on the setting?

I’ve had great service from Costco batteries, and I keep it cranked up pretty high!
