This is my first post, so please be gentle.

I have been working on these for a while, a set of the desk phones from the 1967 British TV Series The Prisoner.

They are fully working & can be used to make & receive calls via a bluetooth connection to a mobile phone, have a built on LiPo battery with a stand by life of approximately 60 hours.

Love it!! I wonder if you could hack in the guts of a cordless land-line phone so that you could easily stand it on a base with a charging port.

I wanted to make it a wireless charger, but the room inside made this very tricky without redesigning the guts with custom electronics & it wasn't worth it. So it recharges via a Mini USB in the back. To graft in the guts from a normal cordless phone would mean having a way of dialling numbers via a keypad & I wanted to keep the look exactly as it was on the TV. This meant just the one button.

Cool! I have a set of the original standphones used for the prop phones. Searched Ebay for years, they are rarer than hen's teeth :)
