Amplicomms PowerTel 2880 Amplified Telephone with Two Extra Handsets

Struggling to hear the phone ring can make it difficult to get to it in time to answer a call. The Amplicomms PowerTel 2880 Amplified Telephone with Two Extra Handsets includes a corded amplified telephone and two cordless amplified handsets, which not only makes it easier to hear the phone, but also allows you to set up a handset in three different areas of the house for easy telephone access wherever you are.

What's Included with This Pack?

To make sure you never miss another phone call, the pack includes:

How Loud Is This Amplified Telephone?

Both the corded telephone and the cordless handset have an adjustable receiver volume of up to 40dB, which approximately eight times louder than a standard phone. Moreover, both the phone and the handset have an extra loud ringing volume of up to 90dB, which is the volume of Boeing 737 at 6080 feet before landing.

How Many Extra Handsets Can I Connect to the Base?

The PowerTel 2880 Amplified Telephone can be connected to up to four handsets. This purchase includes a corded base and two additional handsets, which means that you can pair the base with up to two additional Amplicomms PowerTel 2701 Additional Cordless Handsets.

How Easy Is It to Set Up This System?

You can set up your phone system in four simple steps:

  • Connect your corded phone by plugging the power adaptor on the underside of the corded phone, and the other end into the mains power wall socket. Then plug the telephone cable into the socket on the underside of the corded phone and plug the other end into the phone wall socket.
  • Connect your charger base by plugging the other power adaptor that's already attached to your charger base into your mains power wall socket, and switch the power on.
  • Install the batteries by inserting the rechargeable batteries into the handset, and replace the handset's battery compartment cover.
  • Charge the handset by placing it on its base to charge for at least 16 hours.

How Do I Pair My PowerTel 2880 With an Extra 2701 Handset?

To pair your Amplicomms PowerTel 2880 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 (DON'T place the 2701 handset in the cradle yet. This should be done in Step 6).
  2. Set the date and time on the base of the main 2880 unit.
  3. On the base unit, press the last button in the top row of keys (denoted by three dashes as seen below).

  4. Using the arrow keys in the centre of the top row of keys, scroll until you get to "Settings".
  5. Enter "Settings" and select "Registration". The base will now be in Registration Mode.
  6. Place the 2701 handset in the cradle base (as mentioned in Step 1).
  7. Wait 8 - 10 seconds, and the 2701 handset will register that it is fully paired with a beep.

How Are the Extra Handsets Powered?

The cordless handset is supplied with three rechargeable AAA 1.2V 750mAh Ni-Mh batteries, a charging cradle and a power adaptor. You can charge the handset by leaving it on the cradle. The batteries allow for seven hours of continuous talk time, and up to 100 hours on stand-by.

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 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.

Does the Amplicomms PowerTel 2880 Phone Have a Power Plug?

Yes, the Corded PowerTel 2880 Phone needs to be connected to a mains at all times. It comes complete with a UK power adaptor and a telephone cable.

Corded PowerTel 2880 Phone

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.

Is This Suitable for the Elderly or the Visually Impaired?

The Corded PowerTel 2880 Phone is designed to be very intuitive to use by anyone. The large backlit buttons reduce the risk of numbers being mis-dialled, while the blue backlit display screens makes it easier to read both dialled and incoming numbers, and the visual alert provided by the LCD screens provides an additional prompt for incoming calls.

Moreover, unlike most similar corded phones, the PowerTel 2880 Phone allows the user to take a call by simply lifting the handset off the charger base (when "Auto Talk" is on), and speak into the phone. If the handset is off the charger base, a button needs to be pressed to take a call.

Everything that I needed
Monday, 12 July 2021  | 

Being classified as profoundly deaf, my hearing aids give insufficient help with telephone conversations. I have tried many phones that boost sound but none has worked as well as the Amplicomms PowerTel 2880. The clarity and volume control are superb. I am now back in touch with the world!
