room monitors, and other cordless phones.

USING AC POWER

You can power the handset using the supplied 9V, 210 mA AC adapter.

Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC

jack on the back of the charger. Route the cord through the strain relief slot and plug the adapter into a

standard AC outlet.

CONNECTING/

CHARGING THE

BATTERY

The phone comes with a rechargeable nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH)battery pack. Before using your phone, you must install the battery pack, and then charge it for about12–15hours.

CAUTION

You must use

!a Class 2 power source

that supplies 9V DC and delivers at least 210 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the charger’s DC IN 9V jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the handset or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the charger before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the charger.

Low Battery

Battery the Connecting/Charging

! IMPORTANT!

Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it. The CHARGE indicator lights when the handset is on the charger, even if the battery pack is not connected.

ÔNOTE Ô

Using a pencil eraser, clean the charging contacts on the handset and charger about once a month.

If the battery pack becomes weak during a call, the handset beeps and

Low Battery appears.

When this happens, you cannot make a call until you recharge the battery pack.

If the display is blank and the phone does not work, recharge the battery pack. (The battery power might be too low to light the display.)

1.Press down and slide the battery compartment cover off.

2.Plug the battery pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment (the connector fits only one way),

then place the battery pack in the compartment. Handset No.2 appears.

3.Replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, place the handset on the charger. The CHARGE indicator on the charger lights. Total:0 andHS2 appear on the display while the handset is charging. Proceed to “Registering the Handset” on Page 5.!

Recharge the battery pack when Low Battery appears.Ô

About once a month, fully discharge the battery by keeping the handset off the base or charger until stays lit. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

If you are not going to use your phone for an extended period, disconnect the battery pack. This increases the battery pack’s usable life.

The supplied battery pack should last for about a year. If the battery pack

4

does not hold a charge for more than 2 hours after an overnight charge, replace it with a new 3.6-volt,800 mAh battery pack with a connector that fits the socket in the battery compartment.

You can order a replacement battery pack through your local RadioShack store. Install the new battery pack and charge it for about 15–20hours.

If you have trouble installing the battery pack, take the handset to your local RadioShack store for assistance. o

REGISTERING THE HANDSET

After fully charging the battery pack, register your handset.

Place the optional handset on the original phone's base until you hear a confirmation tone. If you mounted the original phone’s base on a wall, place the handset with the keypad facing out.

If you do not hear a confirmation tone, register the handset again. Ô

The handset is ready to operate. Use it as described in the owner’s manual supplied with your original phone.

Registering the Handset

oWARNINGo

Dispose of the old battery pack promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it. See “Battery Safety Instructions” of your original phone’s owner’s manual.

Ô NOTEÔ

The system can accept up to eight handsets, but only one handset can talk at a time. You cannot use more than one handset at a time.
