Pong Anti-Radiation Cellphone Case: Proven to Protect Users From Something That May or May Not be Harmful

by Lambert Varias

I’m finding it hard to take Pong Research seriously because, well, “Pong Research”. I didn’t think I’d ever see those two words combine to stand for something serious. Yet here it is, so let’s get on with it. While it has not (yet) been proven that cellphone radiation has harmful effects to our body, Pong Research has, um – sorry I had to suppress a few rebellious giggles.  Okay – breathes deeply –  let’s go: Pong Research has developed anti-radiation cases for the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and Blackberry Curve.

The Pong anti-radiation cases are mostly made of silicone, but the thing that really separates them from other cellphone cases is the “Pong gold PCB module” embedded in the case. As stated in a Wired article, the module has been proven to reduce the radiation from an iPhone into a users’ head to “a third of what it would be without the case.” Here’s a diagram of an ear farting the radiation being diverted/reflected/whisked away by the case:

The Pong case reduces the radiation going to into a users’ head with practically no signal loss; in fact Pong Research even says, “you may find that your communication efficiency actually improves with the use of the Pong case.” You can order the iPhone 3G/3GS-compatible Pong case for $60 (USD) at the Pong Research online store; the Blackberry Curve case (only compatible with models 8300, 8310, 8320 and 8330), also available at the store, sells for $50.

What do you guys think? Willing to drop $70 for something that might very well be unnecessary? And how about that “Pong Research” name eh? What’s up with that?

    now why would I want to block something that may very well prevent alzheimer’s, according to recent studies

  2. Cindy says:

    There is a great deal of research to support long term use can increase risks. So, are you willing to spend $70 to protect your family? For more insights check out

    this is another phony anti-radiation product.If you case really worked it would interfere with the signal and you could not make or receive a call.go to with over 170 studies on cell phone dangers underworld news

    • Howyk says:

      This comment coming from a person that has been selling Waveshield garbage for years that doesn’t do a damn thing to reduce radiations. As a matter of fact Kalnitsky is required by law to post the disclaimer on his website that says the majority of radiation comes from places on the phone other than the earpiece and that his Waveshield has no effect on reducing this radiation.

    I wonder about the price point…they’re marketing to high-end phone smartphone users so I guess it’s to be expected.

    This post says cell phone radiation ‘may or may not be harmful. The debate really is over for anyone paying attention. Even the world Health Organization has admitted that there’s a problem.

    how this product work???? the radiation not come from the buck hi come from the front….

    air tube is the way to protract yourself from radiation
    anti radiation headset !!!!!!!

  6. Kevin says:

    Studies conducted by numerous scientific teams in several nations have raised troubling questions about possible associations between heavy cell phone use and serious health dangers. Then I researched ways to avoid the danger from cell phone radiation . I found cases from Pong Research, I read that this technology reduces exposure to radiation while optimizing the mobile reception. I was skeptical about it, anyway, I decided to try it, because Pong is the only technology proven in FCC-certified laboratories to reduce the exposure to mobile device radiation by up to 95% below the FCC limit without compromising the device’s ability to communicate.
