Identify the Make and Model of your Phone
The first thing to do before you get started is to find out the name of the manufacturer of your handset and the specific model of the device in question.
Each mobile device is different, and the variances in design will mean that the internal antenna is not always in the same location from handset to handset. Many of these items come with a visual guide so you will be able to see roughly where you need to position it when fitting the radiation reducer.
Perfect the Position
Even with the positioning guide, you will need to take a manual approach to finding the best spot on the rear of your phone for the radiation reducer. If your handset is not covered in the guide, you can still make the most of this add-on by performing the following actions.
First, make sure your phone’s Wi-Fi connectivity is deactivated. You can usually turn this off by heading to the settings menu or through the actions centre, which is accessed by swiping from the top or bottom of your display depending on the mobile OS running on your device.
Next, make sure that you have decent 3G or 4G mobile coverage in your area, and use your web browser to start playing a video clip from YouTube or another streaming site of your choice. This is so your mobile’s antenna will start working overtime to ensure that radiation is being generated.
With the video playing, flip your phone over onto its face and place it on a flat surface. Take the radiation reducer and move it around on the rear of the phone until the embedded LED light starts to illuminate intensely.
Finding the radiation “hotspot” will let you know precisely where to position your phone and eliminates any of the guesswork, ensuring that you get it right the first time.
Stick it down
The self-adhesive layer on the radiation reducer should remain covered while you are working out the right position, but once you have found it, you can peel back the coating and stick it directly onto the rear surface of your phone.
It is a good idea to make sure that the surface of the phone to which the reducer will be stuck is free from any messy fingerprints and other dirt so that adhesion occurs as effectively as possible. Giving the phone a gentle rub with a soft cloth or item of clothing will achieve this.
Once the radiation reducer is stuck to your phone, it will begin working immediately, allowing you to make the most of its protective properties from day one.
