Replacing the Batteries (KX-TCA185 only)
If the battery level indicator displays as empty (" ") after using the phone for a short time, even when
the batteries have been fully charged, the batteries should be replaced.
Before replacing the batteries, make sure the low battery warning is displayed, then turn off the power to
prevent memory loss. Replace the batteries and charge the new batteries for about 7 hours.
If you replace the batteries before the low battery warning appears, the battery strength icon may display
an incorrect reading. In this case, use the handset as normal with the new batteries installed. To install
the batteries, see "Battery Installation" on Page 72.
When the low battery warning is displayed, charge the batteries for about 7 hours. The battery strength
icon will then display the correct reading.
RPlease use AAA Ni-MH 1.2 V, 700 mAh batteries only. (For details, consult your dealer.)

Important Notice Concerning the Correct Use and Charging of Ni-MH Batteries (KX-TCA185 only)
Batteries, due to their construction, undergo some wear and tear. The lifetime of batteries also depends
on correct maintenance. Charging and discharging are the most important factors. You should take
notice of the following to maintain the life of the batteries as long as possible.
Ni-MH batteries have a kind of memory, the "memory effect". If fully charged batteries are used several
times only for 15 minutes in the handset and then recharged, the capacity of the batteries will be reduced
to 15 minutes due to the memory effect. Therefore you should discharge the batteries completely, i.e. use
them in the handset until the battery level indicator displays as empty (" "). Then recharge them as
described in the manual. After the memory effect has occurred, it is possible to achieve almost complete
capacity of the Ni-MH batteries by charging and discharging several times one after another.
Ni-MH batteries can also self-discharge. This self-discharge depends on the ambient temperature. At
temperatures under 0 °C, the self-discharge will be the lowest. High humidity and high temperatures
support the self-discharge. Also long-term storage will lead to self-discharge.
CAUTION
RISK OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERIES ARE REPLACED BY AN INCORRECT TYPE. DISPOSE OF
USED BATTERIES ACCORDING TO THE INSTRUCTIONS.
