Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Exposure to radio frequency
energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) information
This mobile phone model GX300
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 users, regardless
of age and health.
• The radio wave exposure
guidelines employ a unit of
measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate,
or SAR. Tests for SAR are
conducted using standardised
methods with the phone
transmitting at its highest
certified power level in all used
frequency bands.
24
• While there may be differences
between the SAR levels of
various LG phone models, they
are all designed to meet the
relevant guidelines for exposure
to radio waves.
• The SAR limit recommended by
the International Commission
on Non-Ionizing Radiation
Protection (ICNIRP) is 2W/kg
averaged over 10g of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this
model phone tested by DASY4
for use close to the ear is 1.43
W/kg(10g) and when worn on
the body is 1.54 W/kg(10g).
• SAR data information for
residents in countries/regions
that have adopted the SAR limit
recommended by the Institute
of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE), which is 1.6 W/
kg averaged over 1g of tissue.
