ECO DECT reduces power consumption by using an
energy efficient power supply and also reduces the
transmission power of the base station.
The transmission power of the base station is
reduced when just one handset is registered to the
base station and the handset is in the base station.
Your handset also reduces the transmission power
depending on the distance to the base station.

Fitting the battery pack
Place the battery leads in the lead guides so
that the battery cover cannot catch on leads and
damage them when it is closed.
Use only the rechargeable battery pack rec-
ommended by Gigaset Communications GmbH
(page 8), i.e. never use a conventional (non-
rechargeable) battery pack as this could result in
significant health risks and personal injury. For
example, the battery pack could explode. The
phone could also malfunction or be damaged as a
result of using batteries that are not of the recom-
mended type.
Never use non-Gigaset battery chargers as
this could damage the battery pack.
Only place the handset in the charging cradle
that is intended for it.
