DefenderShield was formed in 2011 by a former telecommunications engineer and executive for Bell Labs, AT&T, and others. The company uses science-based shielding materials to defend against 99.9 percent of EMF emissions. Products include a variety of items, including cell phone cases, laptop and iPad cases, wearables, and more.
DefenderShield provides learning materials about EMFs on the company website, and has a medical and scientific advisory board with doctors, psychologists, biochemists, and field experts.
The company has a wide selection of products including blankets, phone cases, and laptop shields — all designed to protect customers from EMFs. For those concerned with the health risks of daily electronics usage, there are products to protect in almost all situations. No matter what your lifestyle, there is a product that can work for a variety of customer needs. The company also offers product bundles on their site.
With that said, other companies, like EMF Harmony, offer different solutions like protection jewelry or adhesive stickers for both phone and laptop, which may be more lightweight and better suited for some customers.
Having been founded by an engineer, DefenderShield has a depth of technical understanding, reflected in how the product is developed. According to the company website, the DefenderShield technology blocks up to 99.9 percent of EMF radiation in the 5G network, from 0-10GHz. This is unique compared to other companies in the same sector.
DefenderShield products can be found on the company website as well as on Amazon. This broadens the purchasing and shipping options for customers, and provides a range of ways to browse and purchase products. In addition, the majority of customer comments, especially for those on the Amazon marketplace, are positive.
One of the main complaints from customers is that while the company’s cell phone cases offer EMF protection, they also unfortunately hinder the ability to use the camera or other functions. Obviously this is counter-intuitive; but some customers may prefer less functionality and more protection, depending on their views on technology and needs for security.
DefenderShield offers several products, and it seems that customers would need multiple products to protect themselves, which adds up quickly. For customers who want a full suite of protective elements, identifying which areas of the home and environment are most problematic would be key to avoiding excess cost.
While the company has a credible advisory board and has completed scientific studies, there is still no conclusive evidence or proof that EMFs cause health or psychological issues. For customers who are more skeptical, this may be a barrier to reaching this market.
