How does sweat affect my hearing aids?

Sweat can damage your hearing instruments and/or shorten their life. Recently Sonic Innovations published a technical paper comparing their two high performance hearing instruments with other products in the industry for moisture resistance. What I found most interesting was that sweat damages the battery which in turn releases chemicals that damage the electronics in your instruments. The article isn't very long, only four pages, and is available here to download.
