ECO DECT: Pure energy savings and reduced radiationcontent_logo_GreenHome_energy_saving_nom
Featuring an energy-saving power supply, the Gigaset A495 uses less energy than our conventional cordless phones – so it saves you money and is better for the environment. Like all Gigaset cordless phones, it also variably reduces transmitting power from the handset to base station according to their distance apart – but goes further in a number of other ways. Choosing ECO Mode on this model allows you to manually reduce the base station’s transmitting power by up to 70% for all registered handsets. When docked, this phone also reduces the transmitting power of both handset and base station to almost zero. As a result, you enjoy a more energy-efficient way of staying connected with the world.

If you’re looking for a basic handset with hands-free talking and an answering machine, the Gigaset A495 with ECO DECT is ideal for your telephony needs.
