BT Elements 1 km Range IP67 Rated Cordless Phone, dropped onto concrete several times outer rubber scuffed but did its job no loose buttons and really worth every penny in a dirt

Robust, reliable, industrial-looking ‘phone. Not that ‘pretty’ for home use. Call blocking feature limited. .**update : as for the basic functions, the ‘phone is robust and buttons responsive. It lasted five days off the charger with a full charge and does work from the coffee shop over the road from my home. Didn’t work from the pub ’round the corner but then i do have the transmitter near the floor. The handset does feel very industrial and may not suit those with small hands or wanting something more stylish/to match home furnishings. **1st attempt at setup was a nightmare. After charging for a day, i plugged it into the phoneline in the evening to try out.

We live in big old house with super thick walls. Taking our normal phone device from the lounge to the kitchen is not an option, in fact it fails very quickly. We had though we were stuck with a plug in phone for ever and a day until this little beauty fell on the door step. I have used this phone in every conceivable room in the house, for my review of course. It has not lost signal, it has not cracked, the person on the other end wasn’t muffled or cut off in their prime. It is to say the least a joy. The ringer volume is amazing set to super loud so u can hear in every room in the house and i say this in all honesty, you cannot hear the doorbell at the other side of the house unless the doors are open. This ringer i can hear from my bedroom at the other end of my home with every door shut and the phone is sited at the far end my bedroom at the other, the doorbell in the middle so you can see why i say it’s super loud. Now this phone boasts a call block facility, it has an answering service it offers a promise of being water proof.

Good service pleased with phones.

Good enough for 4 stars, but not a five star rating – worth considering though for work or home workshop. Latest update – a video is attached which will not win any awards at cannesi really liked this telephone from the outset and whilst it is chunky, i think that most people would purchase this item for use in a more work orientated than home orientated environment. I have tested it so far in the medical practice where i work and i am pleased to say that it has proven to be invaluable to me as the practice manager; so much so that i am thinking of purchasing similar handsets for all of our managers in order that they can stay connected to their desk when in other parts of the building. Key features:==========+ robust+ hardwearing ‘tough’ keypad+ 200 number memory (more than enough for most)+ fits onto a belt with a clip (without being sexist, ok for men, but not for most female managers i fear)+ voicemail function+ call blocker (yet to be tested)+ simple to use+ texting service is available (at extra charge from bt)drawbacks========+ it is a bit bulky but fits on a belt fine and bearing in mind the range that it can receive a signal it is fine, particularly as it clips onto my belt. + the texting service will attract a fee. + i think 1km range is optimistic and signal strength will be degraded the more walls and obstacles encountered. Update=======i installed the handset at home; i live in a 18th century cottage with brick internal walls and cob walls up to 3 feet thick. I placed the sender unit in the window of our dining room (‘not for long’ says my wife) and it was easily able to transmit and receive up to our gate; a distance of 30 metres. Unfortunately this is some distance away from the 1km advertised, 950 metres in fact and so i walked up the track leading away from our house and at 300 metres was unable to receive a signal. I think the combination of thick walls and trees were too great an obstacle for it to overcome.

BT Elements 1 km Range IP67 Rated Cordless Phone with Answer Machine and Nuisance Call Blocker : Solid with an old school feel. Can transfer calls between hand sets. Have not tried full range yet, but so far no problems. Comes with larger aerials too. No exposed charging pins on base (nice). Odd thing is they look fairly cool. Think that’s because of the straight forward front panel.

    1. Clunky phone, battery lasts a long time. Quite clunky to carry around. Battery lasts for quite a while. The range isn’t all that good. The advertising blurb always ignores the fact houses have silver covered insulation in the walls.

    I bought them to replace some siemens. I bought them to replace some siemens phones that were supposed to be long range, my office is in the garden about 100yards from the house and the siemens phones were right on the edge of their range even with a range extender. These beauties worked straight out of the box without a range extender and have at least twice the range of the old phones. I put the longer aerials on the handsets that came in the box. The handsets are not like the current hi tech flush screen phones but old school, proper buttons and tough. Sound quality is also great.

    Goes through the wall that other’s failed to penetrate. Buttons need a good solid press which in my case, lessens the need for the key lock. Speaker phone could be louder especially for the hard of hearing.

      1. Work brilliantly for the distance we needed (which is quite a long way between multiple walls).

    I would have expected better from this phone. The ringing keeps stopping,so when you are outside you cannot hear a thing and you miss the call. I would have expected better from this phone.

    1. Just an okay:( the range is not impressive even with line of sight. Very large and bulky by todays standards. Menu system feels old and slow. All personal opinions of course. Used to connect a garden studio to the outside world – not line of sight but just 30 metres away from the base station. Works as long as i hang the base station halfway up the nearest window frame. So i’m going to relocate the master socket in the attic and see if a bit of elevation will solve the issue.

    1. Previous phones didn’t have the range/capability to reach 20m through. Previous phones didn’t have the range/capability to reach 20m through a few walls whereas these have no problem at all. Not the most attractive design but they are robust and save having to install extra wiring.

    Stopped working after 2 months. Bought this 2 months ago and was happy until one of the handsets just stopped working.
