Bluetooth Wholesale The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) have come up with a magic number for cell phones and smartphones: 1.6 watts per kilogram. This number represents the maximum amount of radiation that they will allow phones to emit. The amount of radio frequency radiation the body absorbs from a device is known as the Specific Absorption rate, or SAR. All phones are assigned SAR ratings to give consumers an idea of about how much radiation the handset emits. Even with these safety guidelines, however, the World Health Organization put out a warning in 2011 that these so-called “safe” phones could still be related to brain cancer.
According to CNET.com, which has been tracking SAR levels for a few years now, the phone that emits the highest amount of radiation is the Blackberry Curve 9310, which has an SAR rating of 1.58. Close behind the Curve is the Motorola Droid Razr and the Droid Razr Maxx at 1.56. At the bottom of the top 10 list is the ZTE Score with an SAR rating of 1.45. These numbers aren’t foolproof,
