First of all, this is NOT a drop in replacement for a phone jack. It will NOT get power from the phone line to power your cordless phone. That said it is an excellent way to get the DC power wall wart out of sight.

Ordered with Amazon prime, received two days later. Started on the install immediately and took about 2 hours including fishing wire through the walls. Had to take out the old phone jack that came with the house, but luckily it came with an approved outlet box. You need a full outlet box not just a low voltage frame since you will be running 120v into the box. To comply with the NEC you have to run the phone wire outside of the box in the wall so that it maintains separation from the high voltage cable. If you didn't just understand what I said, I suggest you hire an electrician.

You will notice that there are only two voltage settings which is fine since most phones have a regulator and will work with a wide variety of input voltages. Just follow the manual.

The power plugs are Radioshack style so if none of the included ones work, just take the phone to a Radioshack store and buy an adaptaplug that fits.

It is a very nice addition to my kitchen and adds style and decor by hiding the ugly wires and wall wart.

This product works exactly as advertised and it gets rid of all that ugly clutter of power supply cords.

I do have one complaint and that's about the power cord adapters they provide to power your phone. I have Panasonic phones and none of the adapters they provide fit my phone. They LOOK like they do but they don't supply power. Since I'm a gear head, it was no big deal, I just cut the power cord they provide and spliced in the original Panasonic plug and it worked perfectly. So that's why I didn't give it the 5 stars it deserves. It's not plug and play in my experience.

This must be costing them since I returned the first unit as defective and just persevered with the second one until I found out the problem.

As they say, your results may differ.

My unit was installed by the electricians during a remodel. When I read the specs on this product and on my phone, I realized that they were incompatible because of a voltage mismatch. Like other reviewers, I found that my phone needs 6.0-6.5 volts, which is below the output of this jack.

Amazon is currently suggesting that you buy it along with the SL82318 phone. Read the manual for that phone and you'll see that the input voltage is 6.0, which is once again incompatible with this ridiculous product.

Does anybody know of a similar product that's compatible with phones?

All of the new DECT phones use 6v at the base. It seems the only cordless phones 7v or more are the older 5.8 GHz technology. I put this plate in my wall in December 2011 and when my 2008 phone breaks, I'm screwed. I just sent back a Panasonic DECT phone that wouldn't work with this plate.

I bought the Power Jack two weeks again and have been searching for a compatible-voltage cordless wall phone to go with it. OK, that's my problem, I should have gotten the phone first, right?

Most of the phone voltages are 6 or 6.5 volts, whereas the lowest voltage setting on the Power Jack is 7 volts. Not much of a difference, but calling Panasonic tech support, AT&T, and even Leviton did not help me match voltages. They either said it would not work with their phones, could not identify their own products voltage requirements and generally were of no help. Leviton could not help me identify any phones that it is compatible with. (Makes me wonder how a product could be manufactured if there is no knowledge of where it can be used?)

I tried personal visits to Staples, Radio Shack, WalMart and even Sears, searching for a compatible phone. Most phones do not list the voltage input FROM the transformer to the base unit on the outside packaging. If you have a magnifying glass and open the boxes, you might find it on the base unit. Don't even bother trying to get the info over the web or by phone to the manufacturer or seller.

So, my question is, what phones would work with this unit? Again, I'd like a cordless wall phone base with three or four cordless remotes. If I have to settle for a corded base, with a few coreless remotes, I'd do that. There just seems to be no single source of information and the manufacturers do not list the transformer voltage. Am I missing something here? (Also, most phones say only to use the transformer packaged with the phone.) I still like the idea of the Leviton product, I just want to locate a compatible phone system to go with it!

Hello, I purchase this for a house I been remodeling for the past 3 years now I'm ready to move in and now I'm reading the out of site jack isn't compatible with a lot of newer phones. What phones is it compatible with? I have read that some have tried the newer phones and it does work with them but nobody is saying what phones. Am I stuck with junk? I rated 3 out of five cuz I really don't know until I am able to use it.

Thanks,
Chad

Long story short, this power supply/wall plate works with my current (bought in 2014) Panasonic cordless phone.

I had an electrician install this power supply/phone plate several years ago to support a Panasonic cordless phone base. That phone system became unreliable as the handsets failed after years of use. I replaced the old phone with a Panasonic KX-TG4773B DECT 6.0 cordless system. As I went to install the new phone base, I saw that the phone's power supply was 5.5VDC, and the Leviton's minimum output was 7VDC. I worried about a mismatch between phone and power supply that might damage the phone.

Amazon reviewers said that this plate was incompatible with phones needing a lower input voltage. I emailed Leviton support, which wrote back that "The 40215 cannot be used with any phone that requires less than the 7.0 minimum." Finally I called Panasonic support, which said yes, the Pana would work with the 7VDC supply. I installed the phone base on the Leviton plate and it works. Perhaps the Leviton is incompatible with other models or brands, but my phone is up and running.

Other notes: As mentioned elsewhere, the Leviton requires AC power, not just a phone line. Also, Leviton supplies six different DC plugs to match various power jacks on phones, and it is possible to install the plug backward, so be sure to match the polarity of the jack's pin (+ or –) when you attach the plug to the Leviton's power cord.
