Cell phone radiation is a growing concern among scientists and consumers. Pong Research has created this case to attend to those needs. Pong Research has embedded an antenna that helps redirect the radiation away from your head. The radiation in turn has a better chance to communicating with the tower which helps to optimize your signal strength. Plus, for those that didn't know when you device has trouble connecting to a tower it actually consumes more battery to continuously re-attempt to connect. So not only does it help with radiation, signal strength, but also helps conserve battery. Oh and I almost forgot it is an awesome looking case that provides great protection.
Price for a Pong Case goes for $59.99 through Pong Research. Hefty prices for a case but do not forget there are others out there just as expensive. This provides more than physical protection and gives those that are worried about radiation peace of mind. For more details, testing, and certification can be found below. Do you think cellphone radiation is something to worry about?
Pong™ Case Features:
- Optimizes your smartphone's signal strength
- Protects your head and body from unnecessary radiation exposure
- Sleek Soft Touch case provides durable protection, shock absorption and scratch protection
- Pong micro-thin patented antenna module
- Access to all ports and functions
- Reduces the amount of EMR absorbed into the user's head and body by up to 95%
- TRP increased .12 dB, SAR reduced 64%
- Without PongCase: SAR = 1.188 mW/g
- With Pong: SAR = .296 mW/g 75% Reduction
Due to testing equipment limitations it was hard to test myself these claims. However, through some research WIRED.com published their finding and stated that "Pong’s claims seem to be legitimate: Its case reduces the amount of radiation going from the iPhone into your head to a third of what it would be without the case. Contrary to what we initially wrote on the Pong case, it does appear to work." Pong Research has been certified by CETECOM and RF Exposure Labe. Both of which are "recognized TBC (Telecommunication Certification Body) capable of issuing FCC approvals. CETECOM and RF Exposure Labs perform SAR measurements according to US, Canadian, European, and Australian standards for devices operating within the frequencies of 800MHz and 6GHRz. Such standards are accepted in most countries in the world. Visit theCETECOM and RF Exposure Lab websites for more information."
