Safety precautions
Read this user guide and the safety precautions carefully
before use. Explain their content and the potential hazards associated with using the telephone to your children.
Only use the mains adapter supplied.
Fit only the recommended, rechargeable
batteries (
page 12), i.e. never use any
other battery type or non-rechargeable batteries 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
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.
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 our service, as they could
interfere with other wireless services.
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
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

Never use a dry cloth. This can cause static.
Contact with liquid
If the handset should come into contact with liquid:
◆ Switch the handset off and remove the batteries 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.
You are helping to protect the environment with
your Gigaset AS180/AS185/AS280/AS285.
Reduced energy consumption
Your telephone has a power-saving adapter plug
and uses less power.
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
page 17):
◆ 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 outer casing of the batteries could be destroyed or the batteries could explode.
The phone could also malfunction or be damaged as a result of using batteries that
are not of the recommended type.
