SAR level

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any accurate SAR levels for this phone, either US (head and body) or EU (head)? Ideally both.

Finding it very difficult to get a true/accurate answer.

Thanks in advance,

From the Huawei manual. The SAR values differ due to the differences between US and EU SAR testing

Certification Information (SAR)

This device meets guidelines for exposure to radio waves.

Your device is a low-power radio transmitter and receiver. As

recommended by international guidelines, the device is designed not

to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves. These guidelines

were developed by the independent scientific organization

International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection

(ICNIRP) and include safety measures designed to ensure safety for

all users, regardless of age and health.

The Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is the unit of measurement for

the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when

using a device. The SAR value is determined at the highest certified

power level in laboratory conditions, but the actual SAR level of the

device when being operated can be well below the value. This is

because the device is designed to use the minimum power required

to reach the network.

The SAR limit adopted by USA and Canada is 1.6 watts/kilogram

(W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The Highest SAR value

reported to the FCC and IC for this device type when tested for use

at the ear is 0.233 W/kg, when properly worn on body is 0.988 W/kg,

and when using Wi-Fi hotspot function is 0.988 W/Kg.

The SAR limit also adopted by Europe is 2.0 W/kg averaged over 10

grams of tissue. The highest SAR value for this device type when

tested at the ear is 0.691 W/kg, and when properly worn on the body

is 0.871 W/kg.

thank you Flibblesan, you're a star. I can not understand why it's proved so hard to find the info., both vodafone and huawei offered no help at all.

Thank you again.

Re SAR levels, the debate is very out about what is "dangerous". Also sometimes the accuracy of the quoted maximums is also debated. If these levels are accurate then it's one of the lower ones out there-look at SE, Nokia and most HTC phones.

However, these things do matter to some people and I know colleagues I've been plugging this marvel to have asked more than once about them.
