How to measure the electromagnetic radiation emitted by phones... to determine if your phone exceeds the high SAR radiation levels

France has excluded the iPhone 12 due to the emission of very strong radiation waves, as the specific energy absorption rate (SAR) in this Apple phone is 5.74 W/kg, while allowing a maximum of 4 W/kg. For now, buying the phone is still possible, although the OCU has demanded that it be removed from the market. It's important to know how much radiation your cell phone emits, so we'll first explain the concept of Specific Absorption Rate (SAR).

The method of measuring the electromagnetic radiation caused by phones 

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is a measurement of the rate at which the human body absorbs electromagnetic radiation energy, measured in watts per kilogram. The measurements are approximate, but SAR must be significantly higher to be harmful to health, and the radiation should be non-harmful and much less hazardous than detrimental radiation.


See if your phone exceeds the SAR high radiation limit

All mobile phones and electronic devices emit a certain amount of SAR. You can find out the SAR level emitted by your mobile phone, as well as your television or screen, by visiting the BfS (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz) website, which is available in English despite its German name.


How to measure the SAR of your phone:

First, go to the SAR Suche link. Once you're on the page, you can continue in German or select English with a single click on the word "English" in the upper right corner.

Regardless of the language you choose, simply enter your device model in the search bar labeled "SAR Search." You can input the full model or just the brand name, and you will receive a list of SAR levels for different models. You can also do this for other electronic devices.

The table below will be displayed, containing mobile phone models and measurements related to the specific absorption rate (SAR). This rate is measured in two ways. The first one (SAR Wert (am Ohr)) refers to the specific absorption rate (SAR) when the mobile phone is placed next to the ear. The second one (SAR Wert (am Körper)) refers to SAR when the mobile phone is placed next to the body, specifically at a distance of 5 mm.

What is the healthy SAR level that does not affect humans?

Usually, the specific absorption rate (SAR) does not exceed 1.5 watts per kilogram. It's important to note that the value of 5.74 watts per kilogram found in the iPhone 12 exceeds this rate by a significant margin. In reality, those who emit the highest levels of emissions are not even close to this number. However, if you are using an iPhone 12 or have used one, there is no need to worry, as the values need to significantly exceed these two numbers to have any negative impact.
