I’m on my phone…a lot.

I answer emails from my phone (Someday I will count all the answerable emails I receive each day. I’m guessing it’s around 30.). I’m on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.  I’m Googling the answers to myriads of questions that come to my 7 year old’s mind.  I’m texting pictures, like these I took yesterday, to The Husband of Little Z’s crazy antics.

Toddler trouble

Given my blog and presence in social media, I’m pretty sure that I can hold my own in competition with today’s Sleep With the Cell Phone Under Their Pillows (a VERY dangerous practice, by the way) generation when it comes to cell phone use.

But, did you know that cell phone use isn’t without serious risks?

Here are a few facts about cell phone radiation:

  • Your head and body can absorb over 50% of your smartphone’s transmitted signal during normal use. RF wireless energy impacts soft tissue, especially in the brain. Your head and body absorb this energy not only when you talk on your smartphone, but also when you carry the device in your pocket.
  • Even though the health effects of RF wireless energy on our bodies are uncertain, the FCC has recently ordered a review of its safety standards. The World Health Organization has classified cell phone radiation as “possibly carcinogenic to humans”.

Are you concerned yet?  I am, and you should be too.

Critics will argue that no study has shown conclusively that cell phone use and RF energy can be tied to cancer.  To this I pose two thoughts:

1) limits were set before 2000, you know, back in the day when people (if they had them) used their cell phones like regular phones–I’d talk for 5-30 minutes and then hang up and put my phone back in my purse, on my dresser, wherever and walk away.  Nowadays people have their cellphones on them all the time.  We’re sending texts, perusing Facebook, tweeting, sharing pictures on Instagram, checking email, and, oh yeah, we still talk on the phone sometimes too. For the average user, our cell phone usage has shot up from minutes a day to hours a day.

2) An increasing number of young children and adolescents regularly use smartphones.  Children may be at an increased risk for several reasons, including the fact that their nervous systems are still developing leaving them more vulnerable.

This is where The Pong Cell Phone Case comes in

Pong Cell Phone Case

Pong makes smartphone and iPad cases custom-designed for each mobile device and works to redirect radiation away from your head and body. The Pong cell phone case has a micro-thin, gold-plated antenna embedded inside that redistributes your wireless service’s signal, pulling it away from the head and body and redirecting it towards the back of the device to decrease wireless energy absorption without decreasing the device’s signal strength.

Pong sent me cases for my husband and I to use on our iPhone 5s’s.  Due to the fact that we have a mischievous toddler in the house we chose to review the Rugged Pong cell phone case.

Here are a few quick facts about the Rugged style Pong cell phone case for the iPhone 5s:

Pong Rugged Cell Phone Case for iPhone 5s

  • Pong transmits stronger outbound signal up to 27% for an iPhone 5s
  • Pong increases Range up to 13% for an iPhone 5s
  • Reduces exposure to wireless energy (SAR) by up to 82% below FCC limit for an iPhone 5s
  • Protection from 4’ drops and drop-tested to U.S. military specifications
  • Built-in Antenna Technology instantly pairs with your iPhone when you snap it on
  • Proven by the same labs that certify devices for the US (FCC), European (CE), Canadian (CA) and Australian (ACA) governments
  • Access to all ports and functions

Take a look at the video below for a closer look at the Rugged Pong cell phone case and to see what I thought of it.

So, until someone proves that extended cell phone use is completely without detrimental side effects I’ll be keeping my Pong cell phone case on my phone. What’s the idiom we always heard our parents say when we were growing up…”Better safe than sorry”.  Yep, that’s the one.  Besides, the Pong cell phone case is minimalistic and looks awesome. It’s a win-win.

Pong Smartphone Cases range in price from $59.99-$69.99.  You can purchase Pong Cell Phone Cases at and  Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores and exclusively sell the Cobalt Blue and Radiant Orchid cases for the iPhone 5/5s.

Speaking of “Win”, one of you lucky people are going to WIN a Pong cell phone case or iPad case of your choice + a $25 gift card!

  4. We get called stupid mothers for wanting to protect our children from the product you are suggesting mothers buy! Please see our video using a very easy to use meter to see the product you want mothers to buy is endangering children because it provides no protection at ALL!
    • So, I watched the video and read the article on your website. From what I could gather in the video both the Pong Case and the RFsafe case provide--or lack--about the same amount of protection when the screen is accessible. Again, from what I saw on the video, it is only when the RFsafe case is closed that it provides that superior protection. It would be nice to know that I'm not going to get butt cancer from carrying my phone in my back pocket with the screen facing me, but generally speaking, my kids and I aren't going to be using the phone close to our bodies with the screen cover closed. When we do use my phone, we like to be able see and touch the screen. I'm all for learning about new products that protect my family and me, but posting comments in the tone of yours above is not going to win you many customers.
