Pong Case vs RF Safe Case – Review Cell Phone Radiation Protection


The Pong Case vs The  RF Safe Case

Two different style phone cases made by two different companies using completely different technologies to design a cell phone case that will reduce the amount of cell phone radiation your head and body absorbs.  Surprisingly, only one of these cases can be verified using a Cornet radio-frequency meter.

RF Safe’s flip cover case deflects the actual microwave radiation with a shield that closes over the front of the phone, while the pong case only reduces SAR (no shield blocking radiation).  There is something very important to remember when thinking about a cell phone’s SAR.  There is no guarantee that a phone with a lower SAR is inherently safer.   However, it’s common sense that if you’re going to avoid potential health risk – the best way is to block as much radiation exposure as possible.

RF Radiation is very easy to measure with inexpensive testing equipment that can be purchased online for under $100.   A very common personal RF exposure detection tool is the Cornet ED-15c radio-frequency meter,  which can be used to measure cell phone radiation on any public/commercial wireless network — GSM, TDMA, CDMA, PCS, Wi-Fi and much more.

Watch these videos that easily prove RF Safe’s phone case radiation shields deflect harmful cell phone radiation.

How can you tell if a cell phone case decreases excessive radiation exposure?  See with your OWN eyes! Get a Meter!

The Samsung Galaxy s3 in this video is already one of the lowest radiation phones available on the market. This test measures the RF field strength in milliWatt per square metre (mW/m2).  As you can see, even though this cell phone has a low SAR –  when we measure the “real radiation” coming from the device we see it is still very high over ambient levels.

That is the “Actual RF Exposure” that people are exposed measuring even non-thermal levels.  Measuring actual RF emissions  is a much more prudent way for consumers to gauge their true levels of microwave exposure; as SAR testing only measures heating potential. ie “the by-product” of too much exposure to begin with.

Don’t Get Played By Pong Cases Cell Phone Radiation is No Game


Let’s Put Pong’s SAR Testing in Perspective

Citing official documents being reviewed by the FCC’s “Reassessment of Federal Communications Commission Radio-frequency Exposure Limits and Policies” (Proceeding Number 13-84), as it turns out, the level SAR rating of your phone is almost irrelevant, as it doesn’t consider health effects from non-thermal levels of radiation exposure.

Marketing Behind Lowest SAR vs Highest SAR Cell Phones is No Different than ……

                                  …… the Deceptive Marketing Practices Behind Light vs Regular Cigarettes!

Most people are still concerned with SAR ratings not realizing that SAR tests tell us very little about the true dangers of cell phone radiation exposure and SAR Tests lack the ability to establish safe thresholds of RF exposure.

The SAR test done on the Pong case sounds impressive but means NOTHING!

ElectricSense’s Lloyd Burrell ask the question in a blog titled, “Cell Phone Radiation Protection – Do Pong Cases Work?”

Lloyd openly admits that it is not possible to measure a pong case reducing radiation with his RF meter, and informs readers he could not see with his own eyes how it worked.  Because….. and get ready for the smoke now – “Unfortunately testing the pong case requires special equipment.”, –Really?

While RF meters used by ordinary men are useless for testing the pong case reducing cell phone radiation.  SAR is all we can go on….

Wired Magazine observed that the Pong case reduced S.A.R. levels by some 64.7 percent.

Ok, so how substantial is the 65 percent reduction in SAR witnessed by wired Magazine?

Take this example, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N900V made for Verizon has an FCC measured SAR of only 0.35 W/kg (watts per kilogram). while an Apple iPhone 5 exposes a user’s head to a whooping 1.19 W/kg.  That’s a 340% difference  from highest to lowest on these high-end smartphone devices.

Given that example (iPhone users), simply by changing to a Samsung cell phone can reduce SAR levels by 340%, or several hundred times lower than Wired Mag confirmed possible with the pong case showing only a 65% reduction.

Does that mean you are safe from radiation now that you use a Samsung cell phone?  No, because, just as with the pong case, you are still exposed to microwave radiation. SAR is meaningless to support claims that the Pong Case can provide protection from cell phone radiation.



Consumers should utilize an air tube headset as a safer alternative to wired headsets or in-ear Bluetooth headsets, use the speaker feature and keep phones away from your body unless there is RF radiation shielding between the wireless device and cell phone users body.

When carrying a phone on your body it’s highly recommended to use either an RF Safe flip cover radiation shielded phone case or pocket shield to deflect excessive radiation.
