Telephone calls are transmitted between the telephone base and the headset by radio waves, so there is a possibility that your cordless headset conversations could be intercepted by radio receiving equipment within range of the cordless headset. For this reason, you should not think of cordless headset conversations as being as private as those on corded telephones. Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless headset must be connected to a working electrical outlet which is not controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot be made from the headset if the telephone base is unplugged or switched off, or if the electrical power is interrupted. Potential TV interference: Some cordless headsets operate at frequencies that may cause interference to TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, do not place the telephone base of the cordless headset near or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference is experienced, moving the cordless headset farther away from the TV or VCR will often reduce or eliminate the interference. Rechargeable batteries: This product contains lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to create a short circuit with conductive material such as rings, bracelets and keys. The battery or conductor may overheat and cause harm. Observe proper polarity between the battery and the battery charger. Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in a safe manner. Do not burn or puncture. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could release caustic material which could cause injury.
