Perfect timing! Our old set's barely holding a charge these days and replacing them for $33 all in is crazy. Thanks OP!

I can only assume these are cheap because they use non-AAA batteries that cost more than the phones....

that's why I always buy panasonic - the higher price = better quality, longer life and the ability to use eneloops/duraloops when the first pair burns out.

nearly out.

I recall it was free shipping last time, but you'd still be saving money even with the +$5 shipping

I'm still running my Panny DECT phones from 2008 and I can't find a reason to replace them. One handset still has the original batteries!

yeah, the only way they break is if you drop/thrown them. :lol:

btw, can someone confirm these use non-AA-standard batteries (i.e. you need to go to the source and get reamed), which is why they're so cheap? if they're AA, then I would be interested.

I have had my old vtech's for 5 years, and they finally need to be replaced. I would go through Panasonics every 2-3 years because the batteries would go. My last vtech is going strong for 5 years but I dropped one in the toilet so for $33 all in I might as well replace it . I bought the last set and will only buy vtech over panasonic.

huh? why not just replace them with AA rechargeables?

I have duraloops in all mine and they run perfectly.

At the time they didn't have them, but I like Vtech quality, no complaints from me.

Not all cordless phones use AA or AAA... some use proprietary ones which really suck.

I think most of the newer panasonic ones use AAA.
What's the best credit card for...

we've been buying panasonic dect's for well over a decade and they *all* have AAA rechargeables, so the OP must have had ancient models from the 90's or something.

i've had my Panasonic phones for about 5 years now, still working well except for a few buttons you have to push hard. my batteries look like 3 AAA's, but they're in a sort of plastic enclosure/case with two contacts on the bottom of the case, can i just replace the batteries in the case with three AAA Eneloops when the time comes?

I worked at Staples ~8 years ago, and there were numerous models of Panasonic phones sold that still used a proprietary battery pack. They were available more recently then you think.
