alara reduces your exposure to cellphone radiation, without reducing your cell phone signal. alara cases contain a precision engineered, micro-thin, multi-patented antenna that automatically pairs with the antenna in your wireless device. This results in less wireless energy directed towards your head and body, without degrading the signal.
There are many products on the market that claim to reduce your exposure to cell phone radiation by either shielding or blocking the radiation. This may actually cause your phone to work harder and emit more RF Energy. alara uses a different technology. alara’s patented antenna technology pairs with the phones antenna which results in radiation being sent away from your head and body while maintaining the phone’s signal.
We changed our name and Pong is now alara. But it still contains the same unique antenna technology that reduces your exposure to cell phone radiation. As we continue to work hard to minimize your exposure to cell phone radiation, we wanted to update the product name to better reflect our mission. alara stands for “as low as reasonably achievable”. By protecting you and your phone, alara gives you peace of mind.
alara has been optimized for U.S. carrier networks.
To ensure optimal radiation reduction, alara is designed to function with the carrier specific frequency bands your phone operates on.
alara is engineered to reduce your exposure to cell phone radiation without degrading your cell phone signal.
No, alara does not affect your battery life.
alara undergoes rigorous laboratory testing. Radiation exposure is measured with a state-of-the-art SAR test system. Cellphone signal is measured with a wireless test chamber similar to those used by carriers to test cell phones on their network.
Yes. Alara cases offer protection from everyday use. Alara cases have been tested to meet or exceed the U.S. Military Standard Drop Test of up to six feet.
alara has been optimized for US, Canada, and Mexico carrier networks.
With alara, your phone transmits less potentially harmful cellphone radiation towards your head or body.
alara is not a shield, it does not block cell phone radiation. alara contains an antenna engineered to pair with your cellphone's antenna to reduce your exposure to cell phone radiation while maintaining signal. A shield, which typically goes on the front of your phone blocks cell phone radiation, but also degrades your cell phone signal.
SAR stands for Specific Absorption Rate and is a metric for the rate at which cellphone radiation is absorbed by the human body.
In the United States, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) sets the limit for public exposure to wireless energy at a SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram, averaged over 1 gram of body tissue.
A phone's SAR level must not exceed 1.6 watts per kilogram to be sold in the United States and receive certification from the FCC.
alara does not increase the maximum signal your phone emits. Furthermore, the farther you are away from a phone, the intensity of wireless energy and your risk from exposure decreases exponentially. For example, at a distance of 10 inches away from the phone's antenna, the intensity of the wireless energy is less than one hundredth (1/100th) of the intensity at one inch away. So just as with a regular cellphone, the intensity of radiation that others may experience is extremely low relative to that of the primary user.
Alara significantly reduces Head and Body SAR, but in accordance with device manufacturer warnings, we recommend not keeping your cell phone on or near your body, including in your pocket, even with alara.
All alara cases consist of a form-fitting, lightweight polycarbonate shell, which offers outstanding strength and durability. It also has a “rubber” (TPE) rim to provide additional protection.
The built-in antenna is made of copper and is applied directly onto the polycarbonate shell via a precise Laser Activated Plating technique.
No. Every alara case contains custom-engineered built-in antenna technology that only works with the unique antenna structure of a particular model phone and its corresponding network.
Yes. Our cases are designed so that if you lay your phone on a flat surface, the edges of the case will keep the front glass of the phone from touching it.
The antenna in each of our cases is coated to prevent corrosion. A little water won't hurt. In case of accidental dunking, simply turn the case upside down, and allow the water to drain out and air dry.
alara applies a unique paint finish to each case that provides a high quality look and feel and is easy to clean.
Using a damp cloth, and wipe the case off. Easy!
We do not recommend leaving alara cases in direct sunlight or near heat over an extended period of time.
The case is designed to work with the manufacturer's accessories supplied with your device. Every effort is made to accommodate common accessories, but all third party accessories may not be compatible.
Yes. The alara case is compatible with Apple Pay.
Yes. The alara case is compatible with wireless charging.
