The BT Elements 1K cordless phone is a functional, sturdy phone; the kind that can withstand day to day accidental abuse and won’t fall apart if dropped multiple times. In addition to the excellent phone built, a good grip and comfortable soft touch feel, this phone has a remarkably long range and a host of other useful features.

Key Features

Long range

Many "normal" range phones do not quite meet user expectations, with indoor range of about 50m and outdoor range of 300m, but this cordless BT Elements DECT phone has a remarkable outdoor range of up to 1 km. It can also hold its charge for about 24 hours, so users with large gardens or estates, as well as those who answer over one hundred calls a day, can still use their phone comfortably - without any drop in quality - when they are away from the cradle.

Robust

With a range that far exceeds that of other long range phones, it is only rational that the BT Elements phone be certified to the International Standard IP67. This phone is resistant to the environment, meaning that water splashes against the enclosure have no harmful effect on it. Users can also use the phone in dusty environments without worrying about malfunction of the equipment, giving you the freedom to enjoy calls in the outdoors.
