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 ½).
