How Loud Is This Amplified Telephone?

The PowerTel 2880 Combo has 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. There is also a choice of ten ringtones for optimal hearing.

The HD DSL sound provides low distortion with a built-in equaliser, which can be altered between four settings: natural, treble 1, treble 2, and bass. As the telephone is compatible with hearing aids, it means that audio can be adjusted to meet the needs of virtually any user, improving the quality of conversations and communication.

Does the PowerTel 2880 Amplified Telephone Include an Answering Machine?

This combo set includes a corded telephone with an integrated digital answering machine, and a cordless handset. The integrated answering machine records up to approximately 30 minutes. Playback of messages or vocal memos can be slowed down by pressing the "Slow" key, and you can listen to messages using either the handset or a tabletop unit.

Does This Phone Need to Be Plugged Into the Mains?

The base of this amplified telephone needs to be plugged into the mains, while the cordless handset runs on rechargeable batteries, which are included with this purchase. To connect the base unit:

  1. Plug the connector on the cable end into the corresponding jack on the underside of the base, and plug the power adaptor into the wall socket.
  2. Plug the small connector on the end of the telephone line cord into the corresponding jack on the base, and plug the other end into the telephone jack.
  3. Connect the receiver with the telephone using the coiled receiver cord.

To connect the cordless handset:

  1. Open the battery compartment and plug the battery pack connector firmly into the jack.
  2. Place the supplied rechargeable battery, and tuck the wires inside the battery compartment.
  3. Slide the battery compartment cover towards the centre of the handset, until it clicks into place.
  4. For a full charge, the handset must be left in the charger for at least 16 hours.

How Easy to Use Is the PowerTel 2880 Amplified Telephone Combo?

As well as providing greater audio control, the PowerTel 2880 Combo offers improved usability. The large back lit buttons reduce the risk of numbers being mis-dialled, while the blue back lit display screens makes it easier to read both dialled and incoming numbers.

The visual alert provided by the LCD screens 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.

Does the PowerTel Include a Digital Phonebook?

Yes, the PowerTel Amplified Telephone features a phonebook that is able to store up to 100 numbers at a time. This allows you to keep all of your contacts at the ready for contact at a moment's notice.

Can I Wall Mount This Phone?

Yes, this phone can be wall-mounted. In order to mount the base unit to a wall, you will need two dowels and two screws (preferably fillister-head with a diameter of 4mm). Please use caution and be aware of all electrical wires and water pipes before drilling.

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.

Can I Connect More Cordless Handsets to This Base?

Yes, the base can be paired with up to four handsets, which means three additional handsets, along with the one already included with this combo. Additional handsets need to be purchased separately.

To make pairing up the base with extra handsets easier and more affordable for you, we've prepared two more money-saving bundles that include:

PowerTel 2880 - Excellent
Thursday, 1 October 2020  | 

First class service. It arrived within 24 hours. Packaging very good and all items arrived safely. Nice solid corded base that, although larger than our old telephone sits solidly on our table and does not move. Attractive grey colour.
I'm the sort of person who reads the manual first and make some pencil notes about the features I intended to use. Being patient the set up was fairly easy referring to the manual for the detailed instructions.
Purchased as needed a telephone with amplified sound and answerphone feature. This does the job perfectly. Whilst in a call can use the up/down arrows to increase/decrease the volume and it remains at this level for the next call, If required can press the boost button under the handset to make it very loud - press this boost button again and it returns to previous loudness setting.
Display is clear and as we have caller-id as part of our telephone package the pre-programmed names are displayed.
Two minor moans. Firstly the ringtones are not to everyone's taste but have found one that is satisfactory. Secondly the separate cordless handset has a red charging light that is continuously on and having checked with the manufacturer this is correct as it indicates the cordless is correctly plugged into its charging base. A minor annoyance but it is a very bright light when using in a bedroom at night.
Still give it 5 stars. Excellent telephone supplied by an excellent company.

Good speech amplification
Wednesday, 2 September 2020  | 

Delivers loud volume speech for my poor hearing. But too many unnecessary features e.g. working out how to delete the caller log takes a lot of studying the instructions, and trying to remember each time how to delete the long list. Good to know that the phone still works without setting up the answering machine.

The basic functions are pleasingly simple to use with more sophisticated facilities available if required. I particularly like the elevated LCD screen that provides easily read options which is a boon to those of us with impaired vision.

Brought this phone for my mother-in-law as she can never hear what you are saying to her. She absolutely loves it and can now hear anyone that rings her.
There is an amplification button that she pushes which she calls her magic button. I am so glad that I was able to make someone very happy by purchasing this phone.
