tional (non-rechargeable) battery or other battery types as this could result in significant
health risks and personal injury.
The operation of medical appliances may be
affected. Be aware of the technical conditions
in your particular environment, e.g. doctor's
surgery.
Do not hold the rear of the handset to your ear
when it is ringing. Otherwise you risk serious
and permanent damage to your hearing.
The handset may cause an unpleasant humming noise in hearing aids.
Do not install the phone in a bathroom or
shower room. The handset and base station
are not splashproof.
Do not use your phone in environments with a
potential explosion hazard, e.g. paint shops.
ƒ
If you give your Gigaset to someone else, make
sure you also give them the user guide.
Please remove faulty base stations from use or
have them repaired by Service, as they could
interfere with other wireless services.
Disposal
Batteries should not be disposed of in general
household waste. Observe the local waste disposal regulations, details of which can be
obtained from your local authority or the dealer
you purchased the product from.
All electrical and electronic equipment must be
disposed of separately from general household
waste using the sites designated by local
authorities.
If a product displays this symbol of a crossed-out
rubbish bin, the product is subject to European
Directive 2002/96/EC.
The appropriate disposal and separate collection of used equipment serve to prevent potential harm to the environment and to health.
They are a precondition for the re-use and recycling of used electrical and electronic equipment.
For further information on disposing of your
used equipment, please contact your local
authority, your refuse collection service or the
dealer you purchased the product from.
¢
Emergency numbers cannot be dialled if the keypad lock
(
p. 1) is activated!
Not all of the functions described in this user guide are
available in all countries.
Care
Wipe the base station, charging cradle and handset
with a damp cloth (do not use solvent) or an antistatic cloth.
Never use a dry cloth. This can cause static.
Contact with liquid
!
If the handset has come into contact with
liquid:
◆ Switch off the handset and remove the battery pack immediately.
◆ Allow the liquid to drain from the handset.
◆ Pat all parts dry, then place the handset with
the battery compartment open and the keypad
facing down in a dry, warm place for at least
72 hours (not in a microwave, oven etc.).
◆ Do not switch on the handset again until it is
completely dry.
When it has fully dried out, you will normally be
able to use it again.
ECO DECT
You are helping to protect the environment with
your Gigaset AL180/AL185/AL280/AL285.
Reduced energy consumption
Your telephone has an energy-saving adapter
plug and uses less energy.
Reduced transmission power
The transmission power of your telephone is
reduced automatically:
The handset's transmission power is reduced
depending on the distance to the base station.
The transmission power on the base station is
reduced to virtually zero when only one handset
is registered and the handset is in the base station.
You can reduce the transmission power of the
handset and base station even more by using
Eco Mode/Eco Mode+ (see Menu tree
p. 16):
◆ Eco Mode: 80% transmission power reduction in standby mode and during a call (the
range of the base station is reduced).
◆ Eco Mode+: 100% transmission power deactivation in standby mode (top left display icon

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.
Please note:
◆ Never expose the telephone to the influence of heat sources, direct sunlight or other
electrical devices.
