Radiation from ECO DECT Phone vs regulare DECT phone

In the clip there is a comparison between a regular DECT phone and an ECO DECT phone. Those two cordless phones types are different in the way they work. ECO DECT phone is designed to save electricity by not transmitting while in standby mode, while regular DECT phones transmit all the time even in standby mode. This fact is making a very big difference in the “radiation” aspect. DECT phones’ base stations radiate all the time while ECO DECT phones’ base stations radiates only during a conversation and several seconds after. While talking on the ECO DECT phone, both the base station and the handset emits radiation, radiation which you and your family are exposed to, there for I don’t recommend using any cordless phone for more than few minutes.
In some of the ECO DECT phones that are sold today, thק ECO mode needs to be setup and is available only if there is one headset configured.


  1. It is interesting to see that some phone emit more when sitting in your pocket than when next to your head. Cell phones are always on, even when you are not on the phone. They emit radiation while pinging cell phone towers. The state of the science is provocative and troubling, and much more research is essential. My husband at Environmental Working Group are still using our cell phones, but we also believe that until scientists know much more about cell phone radiation.

  2. Some phones and equipment emit radiation all the time, some cell phones in some setup modes (like Bluetooth enabled emit radiation all the time. DECT phone base stations emits radiation all the time, and the list is long...

    I am an EHS person and for me no additional studies are needed, I know that radiation is bad for you, I can feel it!
