2 Safety precautions
>Only use the mains adapters supplied, as indicated on the underside of the base station or charging cradle.
>Only use the recommended, rechargeable batteries, i.e. never use a conventional (non-rechargeable)
battery or other battery types as this could result in significant health risks and personal injury. For example,
the outer casing of the batteries could be damaged 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.
>Insert rechargeable batteries with the correct polarity, and use them in accordance with the user guide
(polarity symbols are displayed in or on the handset's battery compartment).
>Batteries should not be disposed of in general household waste. Observe the local waste disposal regula-
tions, details of which can be obtained from your local authority or the dealer you purchased the product

environment, e.g. doctor's surgery.

vated. Otherwise you risk serious and permanent damage to your hearing.
