Cordless Phones & Answering Machines

ENERGY STAR qualified cordless phones perform much more efficiently

Change for the better with ENERGY STAR

Cordless phones use built-in rechargeable batteries that draw power even when you’re not using them. ENERGY STAR® certified cordless phones, answering machines and combination units use about a third less energy than conventional units and many offer energy performance features such as switch-mode power supplies and “smart” chargers.
