Introduction
Thank you for purchasing this RadioShack 2.4 GHz
Accessory handset with charger. Your handset is designed
for use with a RadioShack 2.4 GHz Multi-Handset
Expandable Cordless Telephone. You can use this handset
in any room in your home or office that has an AC outlet.
No more running to the other end of the house to answer
the phone! You can also transfer an outside call to
another handset.
This handset is designed to work only with a RadioShack
2.4 GHz Multi-Handset Expandable Cordless Telephone
(Cat. No. 43-5829). Do not try to use it with other cordless
telephones.
As an Energy Star® Partner, RadioShack
Corporation has determined that this
product meets the Energy Star® guidelines
for energy efficiency. Energy Star® is a
U.S. registered mark.
Selecting a Location
Select a location that is near an accessible AC standard
wall outlet and away from electrical machinery, electrical
appliances, metal walls or filing cabinets, wireless
intercoms, alarms, room monitors, and other cordless
phones.

Using AC Power
You can power the charger
using the supplied 9V,
210 mA AC adapter.
Caution: You must
use a Class 2 power
source that supplies
9V DC and delivers at
least 210 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive
and its plug must fit the charger’s DC IN 9V jack. The
supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an
adapter that does not meet these specifications could
damage the handset or the adapter.
Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC
IN 9V jack on the bottom of the charger. Route the cord
through the strain relief slot and plug the adapter into a
standard AC outlet.
Connecting/Charging the
Battery
The phone comes with a rechargeable nickel metal
hydride (Ni-MH) battery pack. Before using your phone,
you must install the battery pack,
and then charge it for about 15-20
hours.
1.
Press down and slide the
battery compartment cover off.

2.
Plug the battery pack’s connector into the socket in
the compartment (the connector fits only one way),
then place the battery pack in the compartment.
MODELS VARY! CHARGE HANDSET ON THE BASE
FOR REGISTRATION OR REFER TO OWNER’S
MANUAL appears.
3.
Replace the cover.
To charge the battery pack, place the handset on the
charger. The CHARGE indicator on the charging cradle
lights. Proceed to “Registering the Handset” on Page 8.
Important: Be sure the battery pack is properly
connected before you try to charge it. The CHARGE
indicator lights when the handset is on the charger,
even if the battery pack is not connected.
Recharge the battery pack when LOW BATTERY appears.
• Using a damp cloth, clean the charging contacts on
the handset about once a month.
• If the battery pack becomes weak during a call, the
handset beeps and LOW BATTERY appears. When
this happens, you cannot make a call until you
recharge the battery pack.
• If the display is blank and the phone does not work,
recharge the battery pack. (The battery power
might be too low to light the display.)
About once a month, fully discharge the battery by
keeping the handset off the base or charger until LOW
BATTERY stays lit. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its
ability to fully recharge.

If you are not going to use your phone for an extended
period, disconnect the battery pack. This increases the
battery pack’s usable life.
The supplied battery pack should last for about a year. If
the battery pack does not hold a charge for more than 2
hours after an overnight charge, replace it with a new 3.6volt, 600 mAh battery pack with a connector that fits the
socket in the battery compartment.
You can order a replacement battery pack through your
local RadioShack store or online at www.radioshack.
com. Install the new battery pack and charge it for about
15–20 hours.
If you have trouble installing the battery pack, take the
handset to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
Warning:
• Dispose of old battery packs promptly and properly.
Do not burn or bury them.
• There is a risk of explosion if batteries are replaced
by the wrong type.
• Dispose of used batteries according to the
instructions.

may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must
accept any interference received, including interference that

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15
of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a

However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one
or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult your local RadioShack store or an experienced
radio/TV technician for help.
• If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires
that you stop using your handset.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by
RadioShack may cause interference and void the user’s
authority to operate the equipment.
To ensure the safety of users, the FCC has established
criteria for the amount of radio frequency energy various
products may produce depending on their intended usage.
This product has been tested and found to comply with
the FCC’s exposure criteria. For body worn operation, the
FCC RF exposure guidelines were also met when used
with the RadioShack accessories supplied or designed
for this product. Use of other accessories may not ensure
compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines and should be
avoided.
