Review: Pong Radiation Reduction Case for iPhone 3G/3GS
The first scientifically proven radiation reduction case for the iPhone 3G/3GS. With the amount that the iPhone takes over our lives, we all know that our precious device emits small amounts of radiation. With the Pong case, that radiation is no longer a concern.
The Pong Radiation case is the first scientifically proven radiation reduction case for the iPhone 3G/3GS. The embedded “Pong Module” protects you while still delivering a nice and form-fitting case.
The Pong case provides two types of protection. First, the case protects your iPhone 3G/3GS by covering the back, sides, and corners with a thick silicone. Not only does the silicone material absorb shocks if dropped but the case will protect your device from any damage that could occur on a day-to-day basis.
The case provides cutouts for the silent switch, headphone jack, camera, dock connector, and speaker/mic. You also have access to the sleep/wake button and volume rocker even though both buttons are covered by the case. As just a case, the Pong works great because it feels nice to hold, it is easy to hold, and it is actually surprisingly stylish for a silicone.
The second form of protection the Pong provides is for your health! The Pong case has an embedded “Pong Gold PCB Module” that actually redirects the radiation emitted by your iPhone 3G/3GS away from your head/body.
Radiation is a form of energy that the iPhone antenna emits in order to send and receive signals to/from the wireless network. Due to the proximity of the iPhone to our heads/bodies, that radiation is being directed toward us. The Pong case redirects this radiation up along the case and away from you, where is dissipates and causes no harm.
The special silicone formula that makes up the Pong case actually guarantees that the iPhone maintains full signal strength and that battery life is not compromised. Pong’s internal tests have shown that battery life and signal strength increase when an iPhone is being used with the Pong case!
To see how the case works, check out the description from Pong below:
How it works
- Antenna – the Source of Radiation
Without Pong, your cell phone antenna emits radiation in all directions, both to the outside and toward your head.
- Transfer of Energy
The Pong technology module, optimally aligned with the phone’s internal antenna, attracts the radiative energy. The Pong Effect occurs as a pure energy transfer with no distortion due to the properties of the module material and microwave-tuned antenna design.
- Chimney Effect
The unique “ladder” configuration of the Pong module moves the signal and its hazardous radiation through the Pong case like a chimney, and away from the user.
- Full Signal Strength
The Pong module redirects cell phone radiation while maintaining full signal strength. You may find that your communication efficiency actually improves with the use of the Pong case.
The first thing that comes to me is that the Pong case is way over priced for just a silicone iPhone case. But the Pong is not just another silicone iPhone case.
This is a case that combines the style, comfort, and protection that a silicone case provides with the health benefit of reducing the amount of radiation that your body absorbs as a result of using the iPhone 3G/3GS. This case could be classified as more of a medical device than an iPhone case.
While the price may be a tad high, the case is a premium product, but even with all things considered, does the iPhone really radiate that bad? In any case, iPhone 3G/3GS owners that are looking for an iPhone protection solution that also happens to reduce the health risks of radiation may not need to look much farther than the Pong case.
The Pong case is scored a 4 out of 5.
The Pong Case is available in two different colors from the the PongÂ online store for $59.95.
