Radiation-reducing cases for iPhones, iPads, smartphones

Svetaswan
Hi - has anyone heard of a "Pong" case?  Pong is a company that manufactures cases that are specifically designed to reduce the user's exposure to the radiation emitted by iPhones, iPads, and a few of the Android phones (some of the phones in Samsung's Galaxy series, for example).  These cases have supposedly been proven by independent parties to be legit; they indeed redirect much of the radiation away from users' heads and bodies.  These cases have a solid reputation for living up to their promise in terms of reducing effective "SAR" levels:

http://www.pongresearch.com/

I just wonder if the radiation-redirecting capacity of these cases would be something that electrosensitives are able to "feel"?  Perhaps I should have tried one out when I had the chance: I briefly had an iPad 2 in my possession.  I bought the iPad Saturday, and returned it Monday - for reasons that you all are familiar with.  Whereas some people here have been able to use an iPad with no problem (or relatively little problem) - for me, the iPad 2 was just a little too bothersome for me to feel comfortable using it over the long term.  Was it as bad as some of the recent Macbook Pros, and so many other laptops on the market?  No - but I still experienced a face stinging/burning sensation as I was using it, vague "skull penetrating" symptoms that I've experienced time and time again - and my right hand (the hand that I used the most to "swipe" the iPad) seemed to pay the price for my usage in the form of unusual "dryness".  

Anyway, I considered buying a Pong case to see if it would make a significant enough of a difference - but ultimately decided not to.  For one thing - the whole thing (iPad2 + Applecare insurance + Pong case) would have been a pricey investment - about $600.  I just wasn't sure that the price would have been worth it for me - considering my lifestyle and what I would have primarily used the iPad for.  But I guess I could have temporarily bought a Pong case anyway - for "research" purposes - then returned everything.  The 14-day return-period I had for the iPad certainly wasn't encouraging, though (what ever happened to the 30-day return policy?).  

Does anyone have any experience with these cases - and/or any thoughts about how effective they would be for electrosensitives?

I've heard of them, but I cannot recall anyone here buying/trying them...
... I think they only support specific phones, and those are the phones
that an ES person would probably never buy in the first place!

Right - the number of phones that these cases "cover" is very limited - even down to a specific carrier.  For example - the Pong cases for the Samsung Galaxy phones seem to be specifically geared to the Samsung Galaxy phones that Verizon sells.  Why won't these cases work for phones bought from Sprint or AT&T (which - according to info I've come across - need Pong cases the MOST)?  I didn't realize that there would be significant structural differences between, say, a Samsung Galaxy S3 sold by Verizon, and a Samsung Galaxy S3 sold by Sprint or AT&T.

But I wonder if these cases could make an intolerable phone tolerable?  One can dream...

I had not heard of these cases but I am interested. even tho I have es, I still own an iphone 3 and an ipad mini.
I really enjoy them and have resonators all over the place :)
I see the cases for mini are 30 day guaranteed.  Pretty good.  I will keep this in mind and as I can't afford it right now, the cost seems reasonable to me.

 I will post if I get one.
thanks for posting this!
