Essential Info

For most people, the proliferation of cordless phones ranks alongside microwaves and cable TV — modern conveniences you don't fully appreciate until you're forced to do without. Despite the popularity of cordless phones, a common misconception is that they will still operate during a power outage. Unless you have a phone with an integrated backup battery, chances are you'll have a dead phone during a power outage... unless you have the Cordless Phone Emergency Backup.

What's Included

  • Emergency Backup Unit
  • 4 adapters
  • 4 receptacles
  • More Info

    One thing most cordless phone users don't realize (until it's too late) is that the cordless phone base must have power to communicate with the cordless handset. With the exception of some higher-end models that have integrated backup batteries, these cordless bases will not work during a power outage, rendering the cordless phone useless until power is reestablished — an inconvenience at best, or the difference between life and death in a crisis.

    Installation couldn't be easier. Using one of four included adapters and receptacles on the back of the Emergency Backup unit, you simply disconnect the cordless phone base from its AC adapter cord, and connect the Emergecy Backup unit between the two. Advanced circuitry matches incoming voltage and polarity. In the event of a power outage, the Emergency Backup instantaneously provides the cordless base with battery power and illuminates the room with a gentle blue light, provding safe guidance to the phone in dark rooms.

    Cordless phones vary greatly in their power consumption, but the Emergency Backup will provide enough power on average for 4 hours of continuous talk time, longer if phone use is kept to a minimum. Under normal circumstances, the Emergency Backup unit sits silently next to your cordless phone, providing surge and spike protection for both the power and phone lines.
