ENERGY STAR certified cordless phones, answering machines, and combination units perform much more efficiently and use about half the energy of standard units by incorporating improved energy performance features such as switch-mode power supplies and "smart" chargers.
Earning the ENERGY STAR means products meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Home electronics that have earned the ENERGY STAR deliver exceptional features, while using less energy. Saving energy helps you save money on utility bills and protect the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the fight against climate change.

In addition to energy performance, there are many other important operating and convenience features to consider when shopping for cordless phones and cordless phone/answering machine combination units.
