Amplicomms PowerTel 2780 Amplified Cordless Telephone Twin Pack

  • Receiver Volume: Up to 40dB
  • Ringing Volume: Up to 90dB
  • Hearing aid compatible
  • Answering machine
  • Caller ID (if offered by your service provider)

How Loud Is This Telephone System?

Both cordless handsets have been designed to provide improved control over both the ringer and receiver volume. There are six volume levels, in addition to a mute function, allowing the user to adjust the receiver volume up to 40dB and the ringer volume up to 90dB. Moreover, you can choose from 10 ringtones for optimal hearing.

How Does the Answering Machine Work?

The built-in answering machine saves messages from callers when a call is missed. This is ideal for individuals who fear they may not be able to reach the phone in time or worry that they will miss a call when away from home.

How Easy To Use Is the PowerTel 2780?

As well as providing greater audio control, the PowerTel 2780 also offers improved usability. The large back lit buttons reduce the risk of numbers being mis-dialled, while the blue back-lit display screen makes it easier to read both dialled and incoming numbers.

The visual alert provided by the LCD screen provides an additional prompt for incoming calls. This means that users, particularly individuals with reduced hearing, will be less likely to miss a call as the bright screen can catch their attention when in eyeshot.

Can I Connect More Than One Handset?

Yes, the PowerTel 2780 allows you to connect a total of four additional handsets. This means that in this case, with one extra handset already included, you can connect up to three more PowerTel 2701 Additional Cordless Handsets.

How Do I Pair My PowerTel 2780 With an Extra 2701 Handset?

To pair your Amplicomms PowerTel 2780 Amplified Telephone with an Amplicomms PowerTel 2701 Cordless Handset, simply follow these instructions:

  1. Power-on the base of the main unit, as well as the base of the 2701 handset (ensure the 2701 handset is fully charged).
  2. Remove the 2701 handset from its cradle and place it into the main 2780 base (the large base with several buttons and LED screen).
  3. Wait 8 - 10 seconds, and the 2701 handset will automatically pair with the system (a beep will confirm pairing is complete).
  4. Remove the 2701 handset from the main base and place into its cradle (the small base with no buttons).

Does This Phone Feature Caller ID?

Yes, this phone can display Caller ID, providing it is included in your current package from your service provider. It will store the last 50 numbers, allowing you to scroll back through your last calls for reference.

What Is the Range of the Handset?

The exact working range of the handset from the base will depend on several factors including building materials and wall thickness. The working range can be as long as 300 meters in an open air outdoor environment, while indoors the estimated range is roughly 50 meters.

What Warranty Does This Phone Have?

For extra peace of mind, the PowerTel 2780 is supplied with a two-year manufacturer's warranty.

Fantastic sound quality

My Mum is partially deaf and this phone has made a world of difference. The sound quality is brilliant and it was so easy to set up. Would highly recommend.

Good but not brilliant
Monday, 6 December 2021  | 

I was very pleased to receive my PowerTel 2780 promptly, and, within reason, I am satisfied. It is louder than most other phones I have had BUT, the design of the handset is horrific. The button on the side which controls the volume of the incoming call (which, after all, is an important feature), is placed precisely where oneís fingers go in order to hold said handset, so I am forever having to make sure it is at its loudest. I have, over the years, discarded handsets purely for this reason, and I donít see why this handset wonít have the same fate. Ho hum!

Pleased with phones. Easy to set up. Bought for my mother who is extremely pleased with the audio assist button and can now hear callers much better by easily pressing the button. The ring bell is also much easier to hear..

Great for the elderly
Saturday, 9 October 2021  | 

Big buttons, great volume control - just what we needed for my elderly Mum when using her other phones was becoming increasingly difficult. They are easy to set up, easy to operate and so far we have one happy user. Look stylish and we can determine which handset is for upstairs and downstairs by using different ringtones for her too. Good product!

Excellent phone for very deaf people
Saturday, 26 June 2021  | 

This is the second Amplicomms phone that I have bought.
One of the phones 'died' and I would have like do have purchased a replacement, but couldn't' so bought the twin cordless phone again. I qualified for VAT exemption.

I can hear on the phone now!
Friday, 5 March 2021  | 

I wear hearing aids but even with them, hearing on the phone was quite difficult. This phone system has solved this problem completely. The boost button is marvellous and means that my hearing-abled family can also use the phone comfortably. There are lots of numbers which can be saved in the phone too and other handy uses. I am very happy with it.
