What is SAR?
SAR (specific absorption rate) indicates the amount of radiation absorbed into the head/body when using a Smartphone; the higher the SAR rating, the more radiation is absorbed into the phone user’s body.
UPDATE: Wireless radiation safety innovator, RF Safe has completed a brand new project to provide consumers with an SAR research tool to easily discover the microwave radiation level of nearly any Smartphone device. RF Safe has made it very easy for consumers to check the radiation levels of most Smartphones with comparison features to compare SAR levels of different Smartphones side by side.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
A SAR value measures the maximum energy absorbed by a unit of mass of exposed tissue of a person using a mobile phone over a given time, the power absorbed per unit mass. SAR values are usually expressed in watts per kilogram (W/kg) units in either 1g or 10g of tissue.
In Europe, the European Council Recommendation 519/1999/EC for exposure guidelines has adopted the recommendations made by the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP Guidelines 1998). In the US, the FCC Federal Communications Commission enforces the radio frequency safety guidelines that all phones must meet before being sold in the US. Current reference standards and limits.
