Consumer Information on SAR

(Specific Absorption Rate)

This model device meets the government’s requirements for exposure to radio

waves. Your wireless device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed

and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to Radio

Frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the

U.S. Government. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish

permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines are based

on standards that were developed by independent scientific organizations through

periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The standards include a

substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of

age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement

known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6

W/kg. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions specified by

the FCC with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested

frequency bands. Although SAR is determined at the highest certified power level,

the actual SAR level of the device while operating can be well below the maximum

value. Because the device is designed to operate at multiple power levels to use

only the power required to reach the network, in general, the closer you are to a

wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output.
Before a device model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested

and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the limit established by the

government-adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in

positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) as required by the

FCC for each model.
The highest SAR values are:

Head: 0.70 W/kg

Body (Body-worn/Hotspot): 1.19 W/kg

(Body measurements differ among device models, depending upon available

accessories and FCC requirements).
While there may be differences between SAR levels of various devices and at

various positions, they all meet the government requirement for safe exposure.
