Re: how to extend battery life
Naomi -great question -the answer depends upon the battery type used in your phone -look on the battery itself for one of the following letter types (NiCad, NImH, or Li-Ion) -if the phone is fairly new....sounds like it...the it is most likely Lithium ion....which is great! -to answer your question then... NiCad-yes NImH, -no or Li-Ion-no read below for further details
-if it is a NiCad (nickle cadmium) then YES....try to BUT this is a challenge...as it will then 'die' when you least want/need it to -this battery type will develop a false memory....where it thinks it is dead or fully charged when it actually isn't....very irritating -a better solution is to every so often do this...run it right down...recharge...run it down...etc. -this will remove the memory as it build up..just the nature of this technology
if the battery is nickle metal hydride (NiMH) then use as normal...no memory buildup..these are excellent on many fronts
last most commonly used is Lithium -ion (Li-Ion)....which is almost now the standard for high drain devices like your phone (cameras, etc.)...these DO not develop a memory...last long periods of time without use..etc
-there are a few other types of rechareages...but I';ve never seen them in phones
-if you need any other help...jjust ask...please! -hope that FIX-Ya'd you...please rate me....and note that anything other than a FIX-Ya will actually reduce my rank....I didn't make the system...so please consider the impact of your ranking :) bearb

Virtually all cell phones have a battery charge indicator at the top of the screen. That will tell you when its getting low. As far as when to charge, older ni-cd and ni-mh batteries had a habit of getting a "memory" if you recharged them too often without fully discharging them. The memory would cause the battery life to be very short. Today, most cell phone use lithium ion batteries. These are much better and can be charged daily without much issue. The problem with waiting for the battery to fully discharge before recharging is you can be caught away from home with a dead phone. This defeats the whole purpose of having the phone. As far as being covered under warranty.....what are you trying to get replaced? Batteries, for the most part, are not covered under any warranty unless their failure causes damage to the phone itself. And if that happens the battery you are using had better be the one the manufacturer recommends or all bets are off.
** Extend the life of your phone - Motorola 5.8Ghz - MD700 series ** PROBLEM: We got tired of buying so many of the replacement/rechargable batteries for our Motorola 5.8Ghz phone. So I started labeling the replacement batteries by taking a permanent ink pen (aka. 'sharpie pen') and writing the date of install directly onto the battery. I noticed that I was buying replacement batteries after just a few months.
SOLUTION & EXPECTED OUTCOME: After some searching online, I discovered that you can purchase stronger batteries. We did this and have extended the from months to years. Currently we're still running on batteries that were installed in January, 2008. That's almost two years on the same battery.
We purchased our replacement 3.6V2000mAh batteries from "SmartBatts" - if you need more info, or encounter any difficulty locating the replacement batteries, then reply back to this post and I'll help!
A noticeable malfunction of cordless phone due to batteries discussable
1. The cordless phone allows to acquire calls away from the receiver area
2. The cordles phone requires frequent battery charging becaus not designed for extensive sessions away from recharge docking station.
3. The further away the phone is from docking requires more battery
Problems with batteries discussable
1. a malfunctioning battery continuous to beep

you can ask me you're question(s) : email@example.com
The batteries that are in most cordless phones, and even cell phones, have a "memory". If the battery is constantly being fully discharged from a lack of charging, or if it's used to being on the charger all the time, it will reduce the life of the battery substantially. You'll need to get a new battery, and try to make sure that the phone is placed back on its charger every night before you go to bed. This should allow the battery to receive a full charge each night to prevent full discharge and lengthen the life of your battery. I went through about 2 or 3 batteries once before I found this out. I'm sure that you'll find this helpful and it should save you a few bucks in not having to replace your battery as often. Please rate me accordingly, if it's not too much of a bother. Thanks and have a nice morning!
yes you can leave it in the charger, how ever its better to let the battery discharge then recharge, on a side note does your phone seem to light up for no apparent reason? at random times? just wondering because mine does :)
Typically the charge light will stay on as long as the phone is on the charger. After 16hrs, the battery should be fully charged. Leaving it on the charger constantly can actually overcharge the battery, shorening it's life. The best thing to do is use it until it tells you the battery is getting low, then charge it uninterrupted for about 8-12 hrs. Of course, that's ideal and can't always be done, but the more you can do that, the better.
Hope that helps, and please rate my answer, good OR bad.
as with all devices which return to base for charging, the life of the re-chargeable batteries is shortened if it is constantly trickle-charged, so as with a moble phone, it is good to sometimes let it run down completely and re-charge as the battery charge will last longer, batteries are like muscles, they need excercise.
I looked up the battery specs for your phone. They are 3 X 200mah= 600mah battery packs. They should last 8 hrs talk time with the headsets. This style of battery pack in my experience only last about 1 1/2years and sometimes longer and "sometimes" shorter...much shorter. I bet you never had problems when you first got them. Basicly this "battery design arrangment" goes back many years before newer battery technlogy was developed. But designers still insist on using them even today. They are cheap to make.
****Time to replace them with new ones.****
Make sure you follow the mfgs charging instructions:
"After battery installation, place the handsets in their base unit or charger and allow to charge for 16 hours before use. You can keep the battery charged by returning the handsets to their base unit or charger after each use. When the battery is fully depleted, a
recharge takes about 12 hours. Average talk time on a fully charged battery is about eight
hours depending on environmental conditions, standby time is approximately four days."
