The Amplicomms brand offers a range of specialised phones for users with impaired hearing and sight and for elderly people. The models in the PowerTel range combine functionality, technology and design, and offer features such as compatibility with hearing aids, extremely high reception volume and extra-loud ringing tones.

The PowerTel 780 Duo is a PowerTel 780 base unit and a PowerTel 701 extra handset that are pre-paired for immediate use together. As a pre-paired unit you benefit from a significant cost saving compared to purchasing the base unit first and then another handset later.

To set up at home, the 780 base unit requires a mains supply and phone line socket. The additional 701 handset only requires a mains supply.

If your home set up requires a third handset – please see the triple pack.

If you don’t need the answering machine, check out the PowerTel 702.
