Also the base has an output jack for a mini stereo audio cable so that recieved audio can be re-broadcasted on external speakers so that more people can listen to the conversation.

For charging or connecting to a computer, attach the USB cable from the speaker unit into your PC. To use the Bluetooth function for connecting to a smart phone or tablet start by pressing the power button on the side.
