The new Siemens cordless phone arrived from the UK this morning, a couple of days earlier than expected. They look really nice. We have one base and three handsets.
I can’t power them up just yet as they came with UK standard power supplies. The supplied PSUs are 230 vac, not universal. I’ll make a trip to Fry’s this evening and replace the 230 vac UK PSUs with suitable US models. It’s interesting that the handsets require 4v dc while the base requires 6.5v dc.
The connect method on the charging stand for the handsets is unique. I’ll probably have to cut the power cord and solder the US PSU into the existing wires.
The power connector for the base is a standard coaxial type. A universal replacement PSU will easily have a tip to fit.
