Battery performance
After your Panasonic battery is fully
charged, you can expect approximately
the following performance:
Operation
Operating time
While in use
(talking)
Up to 5 hours
While not in use
(standby)*1
Up to 11 days
While using the
Clarity Booster
feature (page 20)
Up to 3 hours
*1 Handset is off the base unit or charger
but not in use.
Note:
L Battery power is consumed whenever
the handset is off the base unit or
charger, even when the handset is not in
use. The longer you leave the handset
off the base unit or charger, the shorter
you can actually talk on the handset.
Actual battery performance depends on
a combination of how often the handset
is in use and how often it is not in use.
L Once the battery is fully charged, you do
not have to charge it again until
“Recharge battery” is displayed or
7 flashes. This will maximise the
battery life.
12
Battery replacement
If battery performance diminishes, make
sure you have cleaned the charge
contacts and fully charged the battery. The
battery needs to be replaced if any of the
following are displayed after a few phone
calls even when you have fully charged the
battery.
– “Recharge battery”
– 7 (flashing)
– “Charge for 6h”
–8
L Use only the rechargeable Panasonic
battery noted on page 5.
1
Press the notch on the cover firmly and
slide it as indicated by the arrow.

Instructions to customer
Installation
Attached to this apparatus is an approval label. This label is evidence that it is a “Permitted
Attachment” which has been authorised to be connected to your telephone service.
Conditions relating to connection and operation of this Permitted Attachment are
contained in Telecommunications General By-Law 220 (5).
You are authorised to install this Permitted Attachment yourself by plugging it into the line
socket of any regular telephone. You may connect it in place of your existing telephone or
to any spare telephone socket installed in your premises.
To disconnect your existing telephone you must first remove its plug from the line socket.
You can then insert the plug of your Permitted Attachment into the socket and use your
equipment.
If the plug of your existing telephone cannot be readily removed, you will have to remove
the screw securing it. To do this proceed as follows:
1. Loosen screw “A” sufficiently to remove the socket cover. (See Fig. 1.)
2. Remove screw “B” and withdraw the plug. (See Fig. 2.)
3. Replace screw “B”. (See Fig. 3.) Ensure that it screws completely into the socket
recess. (If the screw is too long, increase the hole depth or replace the screw with one
5 mm shorter.)
4. Replace socket cover and tighten screw “A”. (See Fig. 4.)

Useful Information
If you are satisfied with the operation of your telephone service after plugging in your
Permitted Attachment, your installation is completed.
You will be unable to connect this Permitted Attachment if your telephone service consists
only of a wall phone or an old style telephone which is not connected by means of a
modern plug and socket. In such cases a new socket will need to be installed.
Should the Permitted Attachment not operate when plugged into a socket, it is either faulty
or unsuitable for operation with your telephone service. It should be returned to the store
where purchased or an Authorised Service Centre.
Service difficulties
If at any time a fault occurs on your telephone service, carry out the following checks
before you call for service:
L Disconnect the Permitted Attachment and try using the service with the normal
telephone.
L If the telephone service then operates satisfactorily, the fault is in your Permitted
Attachment. Leave the Permitted Attachment disconnected and report the fault to its
supplier or agent to arrange for repair.
L If when using the telephone the service is still faulty, report the fault to “Service
Difficulties and Faults” for attention.
You are required to keep this Permitted Attachment in good working order while it is
connected to your telephone service. Its construction or internal circuit must not be
modified in any way without permission.
WARNING:
This cordless telephone system does not incorporate provision for secrecy of
conversations. Appropriately tuned radio equipment and other cordless telephone
systems in close proximity may be used by a third party to monitor and possibly interrupt
conversations in progress when this system is on radio operation.
