With all the concern there is about just about everything, why does a cellphone get a free pass? It seems that every time a complaint is lodged about the potential dangers of the radiation that a cell phone generates, people go “Nah” and turn their backs. Shouldn’t there be concern and, if so, shouldn’t something be done so that those who are concerned have options? pong’s Radiation Protection Case for iPhone 6/6S is waving its hand to get your attention.
The pong may look like just another iPhone case but it’s not. For one thing it has military drop standard protection — it’s not a soft bumper — which translates into being able to cradle the phone being dropped from 4 feet (a standard) and retaining its functionality without also taking on a new, cracked appearance.
The other benefit of the Radiation Protection Case is that it redirects the radiation generated by the phone away from you — instead of dropping the phone inside a shielded bag, you just snap it onto the back of the phone to have the case automatically pair with the antenna which is inside the phone and so out of sight. What the case now does is reduce your exposure to radiation (specific absorption rate) while not affecting the signal strength of the antenna one iota (by a factor of nearly 90% actually).
A little more about this case — its gold-plated antenna isn’t clamping down on the TRP (total radiated power) of the phone but moving it away from your head and body. That’s good for the phone for one thing, as it helps to keep interference down by moving the TRP away from the electronics and the antenna which it could affect. It’s also good for humans. That means you. Total Radiated Power (TRP) is a measure of the radiation your mobile devices are emitting. TRP is not bad; it is what gives you a strong mobile connection. Pong’s patented, gold-plated antenna is unique in that it does not decrease the TRP of your mobile device but simply redirects that radiation away from your head and body. Which is good for your phone, and even by even by that better for you because this redirecting reduces the radiation by that up to 5X below that of the FCC SAR limit.
Now for those who think that none of this matters, using the Pong Radiation Protection Case for iPhone 6/6S won’t affect anything on the phone, apps or cellular. But the company touts their technology having been proven in FCC-certified labs and verified by testing from Wired Magazine, so better safe than sorry is the byword here. And considering that the cost for this is just $49, it’s hard to argue with “better safe than sorry.”
