The radiation level, also called the SAR value (specific absorption rate), is the unit of measurement for the quantity of electromagnetic energy that is absorbed by the body when using a cordless device (mobile, tablet, cordless phone, etc.). The maximum allowed radiation value in Europe is 2 Watt/kg.
You can find the SAR value for a particular device in our mobile phone catalogue. There are 5 categories:
Note: the actual SAR value is usually lower than the maximum value indicated, as your mobile does not use more energy than is necessary to establish a connection with the network. To date, no link has been shown to exist between mobile devices and possible effects on health.
As a precautionary measure you can limit your children's exposure to electromagnetic waves by having them use an earpiece when making phone calls and opting for a phone with a low radiation value (e.g. one from category A or B), or by making calls only when coverage is good (e.g. when you are in the proximity of a transmission mast).
