After installing the battery, you may be able to make or receive short calls. For
best performance, place the handset in the telephone base to charge for 16
hours before use.
You can keep the battery charged by returning the handset to the telephone
base after use. When the battery is fully depleted, a recharge takes about 12
hours. The average talk time on a fully charged battery is about five hours, and
the standby time is approximately six days. Actual battery life depends on usage
conditions and age of battery.
