CS540 EMEA Battery Change
Due to new EMEA safety regulations,
EN/IEC 62368-1:2014 Poly CS540’s shipped from August 2020 to EMEA regions will contain a new battery and amended headset to house the new battery. The CS540 base will remain unchanged. Therefore if you wish to replace the battery on your CS540 headset you must use the compatible battery.
Going forward both the old battery part number 86180-01 and the new battery 86180-02 will be available as spare accessories.
The new regulation states that “After 20th December 2020, products entering Europe will need to comply with EN/IEC 62368-1:2014”. Distributors do not need to return stock as the regulation only applies to new products sold from the manufacturer.
Users with a mixed estate of CS540’s with old and new batteries may still use the headset's top in any CS540 base without a problem.
Please note that currently this only affects EMEA regions.
