Blackberry radiation levels

by rkl16 / October 1, 2009 1:21 PM PDT

Can anyone tell my why the Blackberry Storms SAR rating is so low compared to other Blackberry's. Wouldn't it seem that if they make one device with really low radiation levels that they would make them all that way? Afterall the Storm does all the same things every other BB does, so again why the extremely low SAR rating.

As someone who uses 6000 minutes/month and concerned about the radiation levels of phones, I'm trying to get a better understanding/explanation of SAR ratings. Any light anyone can shed on this would be a great help. Thanks.

They still do not care.

The cell phone manufacturers still do not think the radiation is dangerous. That is why they do not think that it is important to keep the same level of SARs on all the phones.It is only important that it is within the regulated limits.
You will have to look at the alternatives-cell phone radiation protection. There are lots of products on the market. But most of them are not properly tested as far as I could see. With your 6000 minutes per month you better start looking. I personaly use Cell Phone Bioprotector (www.personalbioprotector.com) Out of all products I checked, it was the only one tested properly.
Good luck

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
