SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) Info

1800Mobiles.com informs its visitors about the limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy adopted by the FCC. These limits are given in terms of the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the human body when using a cell phone. The FCC requires cellular phone manufacturers to ensure that their cellphones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).

Although there is no conclusive evidence nor universal consensus over the effects of cell phones on the human body, the information below are meant for informational use only.
