Setting up the base station and charging cradle (if included)
The base station and charging cradle are designed for use in enclosed dry rooms with a tem-
perature range of +5 °C to +45 °C.
¤ Set up the base station at a central location on a flat, non-slip surface in your house or
Pay attention to the range of the base station.
This is up to 300 m in unobstructed outdoor areas and up to 50 m inside buildings. The
range is reduced when Eco Mode is activated (¢ page 23).
The phone's feet do not usually leave any marks on surfaces. However, due to the multitude of
different varnishes and polishes used on today's furnishings, the occurrence of marks on the
surfaces cannot be completely ruled out.
You can also mount the base station and charging cradle on the wall.
u Never expose the telephone to the influence of heat sources, direct sunlight or other elec-
u Protect your Gigaset from moisture, dust, corrosive liquids and vapours.

u The mains adapter must always be con-
nected, as the phone will not operate
