SYDNEY, NSW: Panasonic Australia has today announced the launch of a new cordless phone that boasts Power Failure Talk System technology – a system that allows users to make calls during a blackout.

The 662 DECT Cordless Phone Series features a single-handset pack (KX-TG6621ALB) and a twin-handset pack (KX-TG6622ALB). By placing one of these handsets on its power base and using the speakerphone, users will still be able to make and receive calls.

Both packs feature Panasonic’s Equaliser Optimisation technology that allows users to adjust bass and treble sound levels to a comfortable pitch while using the phone, as well as Long Range Clear Sound error connection technology that ensures clear and sound with fewer interruptions.
