We’ve all seen the reports saying that mobile phones expose us to radiation as we use them. They have been compared to putting your head in a microwave, walking through Chernobyl, putting a radioactive time bomb next to our ears.. You get the drift.
Although the jury might be out on whether or not cell phones cause cancer or other serious issues when we use them normally, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Right? If you are the type of person that doesn’t use your phone while driving (thanks!), who uses hands-free devices to keep your phone away from your head, and who eats broccoli once in a while to clean out the free radicals.. well, the Pong case might be for you.
Pong cases are protective cases for your phone that also reduce the radiation coming through your phone to you. They work not by reducing radiation, which is actually a bad idea since it would also reduce reception, but instead by directing that radiation away from you and towards more likely reception points. So unless you have a built-in cell tower on your body, the Pong case won’t reduce your reception, just reduce your radiation exposure.
I got a Pong case to try on my phone and liked it so much I got one for my wife’s too. They come in sizes to fit most major makes, including all iPhone models, and are fairly inexpensive. I’ve really liked mine. You can find out more about them on Pong’s website here.
