SAR Value of smartphones & its effects on health

SAR Value of phone & Its effects on health

When you purchase a new Mobile phone or any electronics device (telephony device) you will notice that a Specific value is written on the box/ on the device itself.
So, what is typically a SAR Value? SAR abbreviated as Specific Absorption  Rate of the device.
It is written in the form of —–  SAR 1g limit: 1.6W/kg  —–  SAR Value: 0.999W/kg (MAX) <<< like this way…
SAR Value of phone

SAR Value of phone (Specific Absorption  Rate) 

SAR value is describe by the two authorities viz. FCC (Federal Communication Commission) of the U.S. Government, IC (Industry Canada of the Canadian Government) & Council of the European Union
The SAR limit set by the FCC/IC is 1.6W/kg averaged over 1g of actual tissue.
The SAR limit recommended by the Council of European Unions is 2.0W/kg averaged over 10g of actual tissue.
 But, Many manufacturer follow the FCC/IC SAR limit

Effect on body (Radiation)

Some recent published reports indicate that cell phone radiation is responsible in some degree for health challenges such as:

  • Leukemia
  • Brain Cancer
  • Skin damage
  • Brain damage
  • Increase blood pressure
  • DNA damage
  • Salivary gland cancer
  • Psychological problems
  • Sleep interference


Whenever buying such electronic device (Smartphone, etc.) please refer the SAR rating of that device, lower the SAR value lower the radiation.
Always buy Branded Electronic device (Such as Samsung, Apple, Xiaomi, etc.).
Low Budget + powerful specs are always good but, one thing you should have remember the SAR Value. Don’t forget to check the SAR value !!!!
Our recommendation 0.999W/kg (MAX)  don’t go above of this, never !!!
