Gigaset Repeater 2, it should be clear in the product description that the thing is useless without an adaptor

Item as described packing good and on time.

Compared with some of the cheaper models on the market, an absolute breeze to set up – and it allows the phone system to function in fully encrypted mode, which some of the cheaper alternatives don’t. It does not count as one of the six handsets my gigaset system can support, so no wasted capacity there.

Gigaset Repeater 2.0 for Cordless Phone

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Doubles the DECT range of the base station
  • Secure DECT connections
  • Support of wideband calls

Works well, extending signal all around the house.

It should be clear in the product description that the thing is useless without an adaptor. It does the job more or less reliably, apparently depending on how it feels, over a limited range. But why, oh why can’t it be provided with a uk plug?. You can’t replace it because it is clearly a transformer or something as well. So you have to buy an adaptor. If you want to sell electrical goods to the uk market, you should meet the market conditions. At the very least, it should be clear in the product description that the thing is useless without an adaptor; the current marketing is misleading. Amazon beware the trading standards people.

  1. Compared with other manufacturers this repeater works almost doubling the range of preveouse units with additional clarity of sound.

    It has made such a big difference. I can now get a phone signal over the whole house.

    Comes with a plug adapter, was easy to setup, and works quite well.

    It does come with a uk plug now. Just make sure that before you register it that you switch on ‘repeater mode’ on the base station. To do this, on my handset, i go into ‘settings’ then ‘system’ then ensure that repeater mode is checked as on. Also ensure that all the eco modes are switched off (this limits the range) and that ‘extended range’ if you have it is switched on. After that, it’s a doddle, and works very well. Just wish that they had told me the above in the operating manual rather than me having to contact customer service.

      1. Works well, pity about the plug. I have got this working but as others have said, this product is dispatched with a two pin euro plug. This is not really acceptable for an electrical product shipping to uk without it having a warning about this. Also adds unsightly adapter into circuit.

    We bought a separate one unnecessarily. Arrived 2 days earlier than advertised from germany. Ignore comments about lack of uk adaptor. This comes with one pre-attached/moulded. We bought a separate one unnecessarily. Arrived 2 days earlier than advertised from germany, easy to set up with our gigaset phones. Works a treat – now have good reliable reception in our study which was previously a no go area with the cordless phone. More expensive than other repeaters but so impressed previously with gigaset phones prepared to pay a bit more.
