Pong Research announces big protection for Apple’s Mini iPad

Pong Research Corporation has released a new case for the Apple iPad Mini that aims to significantly reduces exposure to potentially harmful wireless radiation. The Pong iPad Mini case is currently the only protective case on the market that diffuses radiation away from the body while also improving signal strength.

“The iPad Mini may be smaller than the standard iPad, but like any wireless devices, the iPad Mini emits electromagnetic radiation when communicating with cell towers or Wi-Fi routers.” said Todd DeYoung, CEO, Pong Research. “Adding any typical third-party case can potentially trigger the device’s human proximity sensor even when the iPad Mini is not close to the user’s body, and can result in significantly reduced signal strength. Only Pong’s iPad Mini case protects the user from wireless radiation and enables the iPad Mini to perform as Apple has designed it to.”

In order to comply with the FCC’s wireless radiation exposure safety limits, Apple engineered the iPad Mini to include a human body sensor that limits the device’s cellular antenna power whenever it gets close to the human body. This sensor cannot discern a human body from any other solid object, so adding a typical third-party case triggers the sensor even if the user is holding the device away from the body at arm’s length. This results in reduced mobile signal strength and slower upload speeds.

Like all Pong Research smartphone and iPad cases, the Pong iPad Mini case incorporates a micro-thin antenna that electromagnetically couples with the device’s internal antennas. It does not shield against or absorb the wireless radiation; rather it redirects and redistributes the radiation away from the user.

The Pong iPad Mini case:

  • Reduces your exposure to mobile radiation by up to 91 percent below the international safety limit
  • Reduces exposure to Wi-Fi radiation by up to 82 percent
  • Boosts 4G signal strength by up to 13.2X compared to any other case.
  • Extends LTE range by up to 3.6X compared to any other case.
  • Accelerates upload speeds by up to 5X compared to any other case.
  • Enhances Wi-Fi reception by up to 2.2X
  • Extends Wi-Fi range by up to 1.5X

Proven Technology

Pong rigorously tests its cases in its two internal test labs. All products are tested for SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) and TRP (Total Radiated Power) on all frequencies on which the mobile device operates worldwide. Two independent labs, CETECOM and RF Exposure Labs, both accredited as Telecommunications Certification Bodies with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and able to issue FCC equipment authorisation approvals, verify Pong’s internal testing results. CETECOM and RF Exposure Labs regularly perform SAR measurements according to U.S., Canadian, European, and Australian standards for mobile devices.
