Precondition: The handset must not already be
registered to a base station.
The handset is automatically registered to the
Gigaset A140/AL145 base station. Place the hand-
set in the charging cradle of the base station with
its display facing forward. You will hear a confir-
mation tone. Leave the handset in the base station
until it is registered.
Automatic registration can take up to 5 minutes.
While this is happening, Registering flashes in the
screen. The handset is assigned the lowest unas-
signed internal number (1–4). If several handsets
are registered on the base station, the internal
number is shown in the top left of the display after
registration, e.g. 2. If the internal numbers 1 to 4
have already been assigned (four handsets have
already been registered), handset number four is
deregistered and overwritten.
If you have acquired additional handsets in this
Gigaset family or other Gigaset handsets, each
handset must be registered to your base station in
order for them to work properly, see also page 6!
Charging the battery pack
To charge the battery pack, leave the handset in
the base station for approx. 7 hours. The battery
pack is now fully charged. The charge status of the
battery pack is only correctly displayed after unin-
terrupted charging/discharging. Therefore you
should not interrupt the charging process.
Charging is electronically controlled to prevent
overcharging. The battery pack heats up during
charging. This is normal and not dangerous.
