as far as I know rechargeable batteries are available
(I've never had to buy any).
my (vague!) memory is some first generation DECT handsets
were not necessarily rechargeable.
when I was eyeballing a few units the other day it wasn't
to be more accurate, the requirement is the handset must
_recharge_ when docked in the basestation.

as per above, I have _vague_ recollections of some early
units being “insane”, and also am not too sure about some
of the units I eyeballed in-shop the other day (so is why
I mentioned the point).
