Siemens ECO DECT – the environmentally friendly cordless telephone range

SiemensC475IP

The Siemens ECO DECT range of cordless telephones come with a set of ecologically friendly features which are sure to gladden your heart as they do ours. The energy saving power supply uses up to 60% less power than usual and, most importantly, in ECO Mode the base station reduces the power transmission to the handset by 80%, which not only means less juice, but less of a risk to your health. The company claims that using one of these products will reduce your CO2 emissions by 13.5 kg a year. Which sounds nice, doesn’t it? More info -and some very annoying music – here. [Thanks Bernd]

 ECO DECT-based Gigaset phones can cut power consumption by 60% compared to conventional Gigaset handsets. Assuming that a phone is used for an average of 2 hours a day, the switched-mode power supply can cut power consumption by roughly 2 watts (from 3.5 to 1.3 watts). Extrapolating that figure for the 39 million households in Germany, for example, annual savings would amount to 80 megawatts. Moreover, fewer raw materials like copper and iron are needed to manufacture a switched-mode power supply than a power supply for a linear handset.
