Even when the battery pack is not being used, it will gradually discharge over a long period of time. For optimum performance, be sure to return the handset to the base unit after each telephone call.
The battery pack needs to be charged when: - The empty battery icon appears. - Low Battery appears in the display. If the phone is in standby mode, none of keys will operate. If you are on a call, complete your conversation as quickly as possible, and return the handset to the cradle. .QY $CVVGT[
Cleaning the battery charging contacts
To maintain a good charge, it is important to clean the charging contacts on the handset once a month. Using water only, dampen a cloth to clean the charging contacts. Then make sure to go back over the charging contacts with a dry cloth before returning the handset to the base to charge.
Caution: Do not use paint thinner, benzene, alcohol, or other chemical products. Doing so can discolor the surface of the telephone and damage the finish.
Battery replacement and handling
When the operating time becomes short, even after a battery is recharged, please replace the battery. With normal usage, your battery should last about one year.
A replacement Uniden adapter or battery can be purchased by contacting the Uniden Parts Department (see back page).
