As most of the UK is being hit with gale force winds and the threat of snow, it is perhaps a happy coincidence and with prescient timing that BT's latest weatherproof cordless phone - the BT Elements 1K - hits the metaphorical shelves and is now available to order online. Set to replace its now discontinued predecessor, the BT Elements 1K is a more stylish and up to date DECT phone though still capable of braving the elements (though with winds of up to 100 mph forecast perhaps you’d be wiser taking your calls in the comfort and warmth of your home). We take a look at what it has to offer:
The 1K in the title hints at the capabilities of this long range phone from BT as the powerful antenna on the base and handset work together to deliver up to 1km of cordless range outdoors. Indoors it will provide up to about 50 metres, but outside provided that the conditions are right – minimal obstructions and clear skies you should expect it to go the distance.
And if the skies aren’t clear, whilst you might not get the full range at least you’ll still be able to take calls in the rain. That is not to say you have to and we’re certainly not trying to encourage all BT Elements oweners to start taking all landline calls outside whenever it happens to be raining just for the sake of it. All we’re saying is that with the BT Elements 1K you can. If you want to, that is...
We’ve yet to test the new BT Elements ourselves but the feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive. It is nicer looking and more stylish than its predecessor, and comes with the added advantage of Nuisance Call Blocking. If you’re in the market for a robust and resilient weatherproof phone for those calls in the rain, or need a cordless phone that will provide extra long range (or both) then the BT Elements 1K ticks all the boxes.
