Summary: This was my second order for this phone set, for my mom. We've been using ours for over 4 years now and I've got nothing but the best to say about them. The batteries last a long time (I've replaced one set) as does the charge. Long enough range that I didn't have to run a phone line to my garage. Best features for me was that I could pick up a second handset and be on the line with person on another.
