My phone provider supplied us with a backup battery. If we lose power, the battery will let us use our landline phone for up to 8 hours. The batteries need to be replaced and cost $50 each. The last one only lasted one year.
I read on a blog that oftentimes you can reset the battery and it can last months or even years.
Total Time: 5 minutes
- Unplug the unit from the wall, take the cover off the unit, disconnect the battery.
- Wait 5-10 minutes.
- Do the above steps in the reverse order.
- I tried this and it seems to be working. It has also eliminated the beeping that lets me know the battery needs to be replaced.
