Cellphones and EMF Answers

cell phone radiation

An important issue in cell phone usage is the SAR or specific absorption rate of RF energy into the body.  This is measured in watts per kilogram.  The lower the w/kg, the safer the cell phone because the less the user is exposed to thermal levels of microwave radiation.

Some cell phones and their w/kg are listed below:

  • LG G3  .992/kg
  • iphone 6  1.59w/kg
  • Nex6  1.56w/kg

Cell Phones with high SAR ratings:

  • T Mobile my Touch 3G
  • Motorola MOTO VU 204 (one of the worst cell phones for radiation)
  • BlackBerry Bold 9000  AT&T

Cell phones with some of the lowest (safest) w/kg:

  • Samsung SGH-a877 Impression  AT&T
  • Motorola RAZR V8  Cellular One
  • T-Mobile Sidekick  T Mobile
  • LG Xeron GR500  AT&T
