As your awareness of EMFs grows, it’s best to have the single-best weapon you can find.
It’s not shielding fabrics, pendants, or salt lamps. It’s absolutely an EMF meter.
An EMF meter can give you a picture of EMF levels in your immediate location, and observe in real-time the effect of the Inverse Square Law of Physics — which states that any exposure from any type of EMF will diminish by 75% when you double the distance from the source.
EMFs are present everywhere, but they are not present everywhere in equal intensity. You may find lower EMF levels in an urban basement than a modern, rural kitchen. With an EMF meter you can actually know what’s around and assaulting your body.
Not all EMF meters are created equal, however. Let’s explore the best two options for most people, and see how they compare.
Cornet ED88T Plus
The most versatile and the most affordable, this meter is an amazing little gadget — and, I think, the best option on the market for most people trying to educate themselves about EMF.
You can spend thousands of dollars on EMF meters. Or many, many hundreds.
The Cornet measures all three “types” of EMF field: wireless (radio-frequency/microwaves), magnetic, and electric fields. It will display one field at a time; to access other types of EMF, you simply toggle between modes.
There is a learning curve as you become familiar with reading the numbers, but it isn’t terribly complicated. A colored light bulb indicates how high the readings are, and there’s an optional “Super Safe Mode” that will give you even more sensitive readings. However, on this mode, you’ll likely never find a safe spot in a modern city.
Give yourself about a week to get used to using this meter, and before long you’ll be a skilled veteran in the world of EMFs.
You’ll need to point the meter directly at the source to receive the most accurate reading. If you don’t know the source, hold the meter in one place and rotate around the room or area. The highest reading can suggest the source of the radiation.
- Three modes (RF, Magnetic, Electric)
- Excellent accuracy for the price
- Acoustic feature (you can hear the frequency’s pulses and intensity)
- Must point meter toward source of electric field (not a big deal at all)
- Must wave meter around when measuring magnetic fields and look for highest reading (only a small deal)
Simply incredible bang for the buck, compared to other options. You’ll have to spend much, much more to beat this machine.
TriField EMF Meter Model TF2
The TriField is the gold standard for entry-level multi-meters.
The “Tri” represents the capability to measure the three types of EMF: RF (wireless), magnetic, and electric.
The knock on the TriField is that it is — while great — not quite as accurate as other options (like the Cornet). That doesn’t mean it can’t give you a fantastic “general idea” of what’s going on in your immediate environment, though.
No cheaper, multi-meter is perfect — you have to spend loads of money (hundreds and thousands) to get highly accurate readings. The Cornet isn’t perfect, either — but for similar money, the Cornet does offer a slightly clearer picture of what’s going on around you.
- Three modes (RF, magnetic, electric)
- Does the job
- Acoustic mode (you can hear the frequency’s pulses and intensity)
- Slightly less sensitive than the Cornet
