These logs are encrypted and can only be accessed by an authorized LG Repair centre should you need to return your device for repair. Exposure to radio frequency energy Radio wave exposure and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) information. This tablet device model LG-V500 has been designed to comply with applicable safety requirements for exposure to radio waves. These requirements are based on scientific guidelines that include safety margins designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health. •The radio wave exposure guidelines employ a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). Tests for SAR are conducted using standardised methods with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all used frequency bands. •While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various LG device models, they are all designed to meet the relevant guidelines for exposure to radio waves. •The SAR limit recommended by the International Commission on NonIonizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is 2 W/kg averaged over 10 g of tissue. 7 •The highest SAR value for this device when worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is 0.720 W/kg. •This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the normal use position against the ear or when positioned at least 0.00 cm away from the body. When a carry case, belt clip or holder is used for body-worn operation, it should not contain metal and should position the product at least 0.00 cm away from your body. In order to transmit data files or messages, this device requires a quality connection to the network. In some cases, transmission of data files or messages may be delayed until such a connection is available. Ensure the above separation distance instructions are followed until the transmission is completed.
