Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Lif3 Smartchip?

In very simple terms the Lif3 Smartchip is an ultra-thin sticker that attaches to the back of your smartphone, which includes both microwave-absorbing material and radio frequency coupler technology. The former absorbs radiation from the antenna of your smartphone, while the latter disperses that radiation through the back of the phone and away from your head or body. The result is that your radiation exposure is reduced by up to 95%*. The Lif3 Smartchip may not look like much, but this ground-breaking little superstar works to reduce exposure to your brain and other important bits, with virtually no impact on your phone’s transmission signal.

How can I be sure the Lif3 Smartchip actually works?

The Lif3 Smartchip is the only mobile radiation reduction product in Australia that’s scientifically proven to reduce your exposure to smartphone electromagnetic fields (by up to 95%*, might we add). Not only that, Lif3 models have been independently tested by the NATA accredited EMC Technologies laboratory located in Melbourne, so you’ll know how effective the product for your particular phone is. For more information head over to our Evidence page.

What does the Lif3 Smartchip safeguard me against?

Electromagnetic radiation, or EMR, is emitted from many of the devices we use today to transmit information. Mobile phones and tablets use the range of 450–2100 MHz. These radiation frequencies can potentially affect our immune and nervous systems and cause a reduction in sperm count and quality, amongst other things.

Your exposure to this radiation can be minimised by putting distance between you and your phone, but this isn’t always practical. Applying a Lif3 Smartchip to the back of your phone diverts a substantial amount of this radiation away from your head and body. Read the Research for more about the risks.

What is the exposure reduction for Android Smartchip?

The Android Smartchip has been tested on the Samsung S4 & S5 reducing the SAR by up to 93.2%. Whilst this reduction level may vary between Android Smartphone models, the Lif3 Android Smartchip will keep you safer than the safety limit. We are continuing to expand testing on more models. Whilst the Android Smartchip is designed to suit most Android Smartphones, correct placement of the Smartchip is essential. Unfortunately the design of some models of phones do not allow the Smartchip to be placed in the most effective location (i.e. rear speaker positioning and sliding phone designs). If you are unsure, please check with us.

Does the Lif3 Smartchip affect signal transmission?

Unlike other products on the market, Lif3 Smartchips are independently tested for their effectiveness and found to have virtually no impact on your signal transmission.

Does the Lif3 Smartchip fit any device?

Every mobile phone device is designed with different specifications, so we’ve developed different Lif3 Smartchips for the most popular phone models to minimise your radiation exposure with virtually no impact on the transmission signal. You’ll need to select the right Smartchip for your particular device, which can be seen over on our Product Range page.

Why are there specific Smartchips for other Smartphones but a generic for the Android?

The individual Smartchips are designed for the most popular phone models in circulation. Whilst we don’t have a Smartchip available for every Android Smartphone model, we are continuing to work on improving our testing methods and models.

Is the Lif3 Smartchip available for iPads or Tablets?

The Lif3 Smartchip is not yet available for iPads or Tablets, however we anticipate having a suitable Smartchip for iPads and Tablets available in our range later this year.

Is the Lif3 Smartchip easy to apply, and how do I fit it to my device?

The Lif3 Smartchip is super simple to apply. The hi-tech sticker simply sticks onto the back of your device, and at only 0.35mm thin most protective cases fit easily over it. You’ll receive instructions for the correct placement along with your Smartchip.

Will my device case and accessories still fit?

The Lif3 Smartchip is incredibly thin at just 0.35mm in thickness. Most phone and device cases will fit over this, so you can change your style as often as you change your socks. Stick the Smartchip on, put your case over the top and get on with life knowing you’re reducing your radiation exposure.

How long does the Lif3 Smartchip work for?

Lif3 Smartchips are designed to work for the lifetime of your phone. Providing you take reasonable care of your phone, you can expect several years of effective use.

What happens when I change phones?

As each Lif3 Smartchip is designed for the device’s unique specifications, you’ll need to upgrade your Lif3 Smartchip when you upgrade your phone. If you pass your old phone onto someone in your family you can leave the Lif3 Smartchip on, knowing that their exposure to mobile phone radiation is minimised.

How do I care for my Lif3 Smartchip?

Basically you should treat your Lif3 Smartchip as you would your phone or device – after all, it is attached to it! We recommend treating it like any electronic device and not exposing the Smartchip to moisture or leaving it in the sun, as this could damage its technology.

Sounds great. Where do I find my Lif3 Smartchip?
