Question about Uniden CEZAI998 Phone
Wanting to know if the base unit for this Uniden CEZA 1998 needs only a telephone connection. I want to mount the base onto an existing phone jack in my kitchen, where there is no electrical outlet nearby. I can only plug in my phone into the phone jack, so the phone I get must have a caller i.d. (and answering machine..but that is not necessary)that is only battery operated. The other handset (the cordless one) will be going (obviously) next to an outlet. Please advise. Thank you. -AndrewBear
Most cordless phones need some access to 120 volt power to recharge the internal NiCad batteries. It wouldn't be cost effective to have on hand a bunch of charged batteries that you'd replace on a daily basis. they got to be charged up eventually.

AFAIK there is no answering machine that will work without being connected to an electrical outlet, neither will the caller ID. The corded handset on the base unit will work, but that is it. The base uses the AC power to transmit and receive to/from the cordless so you won't be able to use the cordless handset with out the base being connected to AC.
