The Lif3 Smartchip models we develop undergo stringent independent testing to provide the optimal reduction in mobile phone radiation possible with virtually no loss of signal.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is used to measure the energy which is absorbed by human tissue when exposed to a radio frequency electromagnetic field. By Australian regulations, mobile phones must emit a SAR of less than 2 W/kg. The US standard is lower at 1.6 W/kg.
Measuring SAR from mobile phones and tablets is a complex and expensive process. There’s only one NATA accredited lab in Australia equipped to test SAR from wireless devices, and that’s EMC Technologies in Melbourne. We commission full independent reports from EMC Technologies for individual Lif3 Smartchip models. That’s why Lif3 (and Lif3 alone) can provide a reliable indication of how much your Smartchip will reduce your radiation exposure by, which can be up to 95%* for some models. Why is this such a great thing? Read The Research about the risks and effects of electromagnetic radiation.
The SAR limit was developed back in 1996 before our smartphones became our constant companions, and calculated for a 90kg man. There’s no separate safety limit for children, whose brains absorb up to twice the radiation that adults do. The SAR limit also doesn’t take into account any cumulative effects of microwave radiation from our phones.
SAR measures the effect of radio frequency fields on human tissue, so a typical EMR meter won’t do the job. Instead the test involves a humanlike ‘phantom’ shape, filled with a viscous fluid to simulate brain and body tissue. A carefully calibrated probe is inserted into this liquid at specific points to measure the Specific Absorption Rate received from the standard device, then again when the Lif3 product has been applied to the phone.
As you can see from the test results above, SAR can be significantly reduced with one exceptional little Lif3 Smartchip.
