Question about Vtech i5871 Cordless Phone
It appears the battery basically was underdesigned and lasts only around one year and a day (warranty is 12 months). Eventually the handset will die as it cannot maintain power long enough to connect to the base, let alone use it to have conversations. VTech is aware they've got a lemon on their hand but are afraid to face the issue head on and hide behind their warranty story. I have a system with 8 handsets and am now faced having to replace these every 12 months at a cost of $15 per battery. The alternative is throwing away a $700+ investment in this supposedly flawless state-of-the-art phone system. Go to their website and you'll see that the only model where batteries are promimently featured on the product page is this very one. Doesn't take much brains to figure out why......
Me too, luckily have only one phone and budgetbatteries.com sells them for $10+shipping. It solves the problem, but at a price.
