Elements Additional Handset – New Style – Edition 2 – 31.08.06 – 7780

2 Getting started

Location

You need to place your BT Elements Charger within 2 metres of a mains power socket so that the cable will reach.

Make sure the base is at least 1 metre away from other electrical appliances to avoid interference.

Handset range

The BT Elements phone has a range of up to 1000 metres outdoors when there is a clear line of sight between the base and the handset. When there is no clear line of sight between the base and the handset, e.g. the base is indoors and the handset either indoors or outdoors, the range could be reduced to 50 metres. Thick stone walls can severely affect the range.

Signal strength

The icon on your handset indicates when you are in range. When you move out of range of the base, the out of range tone will sound every minute and theicon will flash on the handset display. This is repeated

until you move back into range.

Talk/Standby time

In ideal conditions, fully charged handset batteries should give about 10 hours talk time or 100 hours standby time on a single charge. The base must remain plugged in to the mains and switched on at all times. Please note that if you are using the torch feature, the talk/standby times will be reduced.

Note that new batteries do not reach full capacity until they have been in normal use for several days.

Battery low warning

If the symbol flashes in the display and you hear a warning beep every minute, you will need to recharge the handset before you can use it again.

During charging, the symbol will scroll in the display.

Battery performance

To keep your batteries in the best condition, leave the handset off the base for a few hours at a time.

Running the batteries right down at least once a week will help them last as long as possible. From a rundown state the handset may take a minute or so to power up the display.

The charge capacity of rechargeable batteries will reduce with time as they wear out, giving the handset less talk/standby time. Eventually they will need to be replaced. New batteries are available from the BT Elements Helpline on 0870 605 8047.

If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047 or email bt.helpdesk@suncorptech.com

3 Getting started

After charging your handset for the first time, subsequent charging time is about 6–8hours a day dependant on usage. Batteries and handset may become warm during charging. This is normal.

Setting up

1.At the handset: Make sure the battery ribbon is laying flat inside the battery compartment and insert the 2 x AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries supplied observing the polarity markings (+ and -).

2.Replace the battery cover: hook the two plastic clips into place first, then lower and screw the cover into place. Finally, screw the belt clip on. You can use a coin, e.g. 10p piece if you don’t have a screwdriver.
