The L.O.V.E. Pod

SAR, is short for “Specific Absorption Rate” 

SAR tests for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy that can damage human tissue.

To prevent damage, many countries around the world have introduced standards that limit the amount of RF exposure allowed from transmitters of all types.

L.O.V.E. Pods have been tested to emit 25% less RF energy than the industry standards, and regulatory limits discussed below.  We call it a “Baby Pod”, because its RF level is safe enough to be around babies without harm.

RF exposure is evaluated using a “phantom” that simulates the electrical characteristics of the human head or body. The RF energy penetrating the “phantom” is monitored by precisely positioned probes that measure Specific Absorption Rate in watts per kilogram of tissue.

In the United States, the FCC regulates SAR under 47 CFR Part 2, section 2.1093. Products intended for general use must meet a SAR limit of 1.6 mW/g averaged over one gram of tissue in any part of the head or body, and 4 mW/g averaged over 10 grams for hands, wrists, feet and ankles.

In the European Union, RF exposure limits have been established by Council Recommendation 1999/519/EC. Harmonized standards cover the most common products such as cell phones and RFID devices. The limits and methods of RF exposure evaluation in the EU are similar but not identical to those in the US.

There has certainly been some debate about whether or not 5G radiofrequency (RF) fields that are above 6 GHz, are harmful to people.   

While we won’t debate the matter, we can read the WARNING signs posted on even small 5G cell towers.

Going with the “better safe than sorry” approach, the L.O.V.E. Baby Pods do not use 5G, it is a bit slower, but potentially safer.

The electromagnetic radiation used by all mobile phone technologies has led some people to worry about increased health risks, including developing certain types of cancer.

While we leave it to you, to decide for yourself if there is anything potentially harmful about 5G, the Baby Pods will continue to use just 4G +, Satellite, Mesh, and the FirstNet Emergency Band which is on 4G.
