Backup Power Information


                                                                                                                                                                    Your home phone service is provided with our state-of-the-art fiber optic network and

                                                                                                                                                                    requires electric power to operate. To avoid a disruption of home voice service during a

                                                                                                                                                                    power outage – and to maintain the ability to connect to 911 emergency services -- we at

                                                                                                                                                                   Sledge Telephone Company (STC) provide a battery backup that is already installed for your

                                                                                                                                                                    convenience and safety. These backups are designed to provide up to 8 hours of standby

                                                                                                                                                                    power. We offer these free of charge.

What Your Backup Battery Can – and Can’t – Do for You

                                                                                                                                                                    Our backup batteries are expected to last 8 hours on standby power. That means the backup

                                                                                                                                                                    battery should give you approximately 6 hours of talk time. Factors including, but not

                                                                                                                                                                    limited to, extreme temperatures will lessen that amount. If you feel that is not enough

                                                                                                                                                                    time, you may extend your standby power by purchasing a 24-hour battery or additional 8-

                                                                                                                                                                    hour batteries.

                                                                                                                                                                    Our backup battery does not provide power to any services in your home. Home security

                                                                                                                                                                    systems, medical monitoring devices, routers and other equipment will not run on the home

                                                                                                                                                                    phone backup battery.

Instructions for Proper Care and Use of Your Battery

                                                                                                                                                                    Environmental factors such as temperature can shorten your battery’s useful life.

                                                                                                                                                                    These batteries will last longer when stored in a temperature range above 41°F and

                                                                                                                                                                    below 104°F. They will not last forever and should be replaced every few years.

                                                                                                                                                                    Contact STC at 662-569-3311 when your battery needs to be replaced.
