There are so many EMF protection products on the market, that it can be really hard to tell which products to trust, and which ones not to trust – like eLink products. For me, there are a few factors I look for in a quality product that allows me to at least trust it enough to give it a try. First of all, they need to have an actual website, with support and contact information. Next, they need to have at least some science, research, studies, showing how their product effects electromagnetic fields in a way that protects the body. Finally, they need to make a quality product.
Elink’s EMF protection products sold on Amazon fail in all three categories for me, but let me tell you a bit more why, and then I’ll tell you what I would purchase in each product’s place.
Now, I’m not saying that it isn’t possible for these products to work, I just want to outline the red flags in my opinion.
eLink EMF Protection Products Review
Ok, let’s walk through this step by step, and then we’ll talk briefly about each product individually, and I’ll give my recommendations of what you should consider instead.
Alright, to start Elink’s EMF protection products can only be found on Amazon. This isn’t a huge issue in itself, as there are plenty of quality products sold primarily on Amazon. Elink however, has no website whatsoever that gives information about its products, or where/how they are made, or even customer support contact information (Update: it appears Elink recently made a website).
I’m going to be comparing these products throughout to a company called Aulterra for comparison, as both make fairly similar products. To see my full review of Aulterra products just click here.
With Aulterra’s products, at least they have a website that provides a fair amount of information about their products as well as a phone number and live chat where you can ask questions about the product.
No Research or Product Information
If you look at any of eLink’s Amazon listings, you will notice that there is a surprising lack of information. The only information they appear to give describing how the product works is this incoherent few sentences:
“Well, think about this. Without protection, a computer’s CPU would not be able to function due to all the conflicting electromagnetic chaos. Without this protection, computer CPUs would be rendered useless. Computer manufacturers have been using this technology for decades. But it wasn’t until recently that we have begun using this same technology to protect ourselves. “
I have researched and studied EMF radiation for a very long time, and I can tell you that this is absolute garbage meant to confuse the reader and have you simply pass by.
In comparison, Aulterra has a full page of research all of which is completely public, as well as a full copy of the companies patent. They are very transparent about how their products work.
Regardless of the product, and eLink has quite a few, they give the same one-sentence generic answer.
Ok now let’s talk about each product.
eLink EMF Neutralizer – Whole House Plug Protection Device Review
Elink claims that this product will protect you from all electronic devices in the home by utilizing the existing wiring in the home. They also say that it is absorbent, not conductive, and so it won’t use any electricity or emit any kind of light, it just utilizes the wiring in the home to stop all of the EMF radiation.
One of the biggest red flags for me is how this product is made. Let me walk you through my 2 minutes of investigation.
First, I took a look at the Amazon picture of the eLink plug.
Then I zoomed in a bit on the text you can see on top.
As you can maybe make out from that image, the word “Leviton” is written on top. So I did a quick google search for “Leviton Black Plug.” This search immediately leads me to this listing on Home Depot. As you can see from that link, the plug by itself sells for a little under $3.00.
Now, the eLink plug does contain a small amount of gray putty like silicon material, which they would likely claim has some beneficial power that is transmitted into the electrical systems. But if this was true, why wouldn’t they explain this briefly in the Amazon description of the product?
For me, this is a huge red flag and would have me pass on this item by itself.
A comparable version of this product, with a fair amount more research behind it, would be this one from Aulterra (Or you can read my full Aulterra review). Although Aulterra has a nice website and much more research, I’m still not 100% confident their product works.
Honestly you’d be much better off getting a quality EMF meter, (I really like the new TriField TF2 (read my review) as it’s simple to use, lasts forever, is extremely accurate, and measures all three types of EMF radiation), and taking steps to reduce the amount of radiation in your house. Just check out the Knowledge section of EMF Academy for tips on this.
eLink EMF Cell Phone Protection Device
I don’t have much to say about this product, because again, they give the same few sentence generic description they do for their whole house plug about how it works. They do give you this picture you can see to the right, but they do not tell you what ANY of those layers actually are.
In fact, I’m not even certain that there are layers, because I ordered this product, cut into it, and with tweezers tried to separate the layers and I personally found nothing you wouldn’t find in a children’s power rangers sticker.
I don’t want to completely discount that this product could work, because if you read through some of the reviews on the Amazon link for this, there are many people who feel like it is working for them.
Now, in general, I like to trust the way people feel about a product, and if it’s making a positive influence in their lives, I think that is great. For me though, I’m not convinced this product works.
If you want to check out a comparable product from Aulterra, you can see the listing here, but again I would say you’d be better off getting a good EMF meter and taking smart steps to reduce radiation in your home instead of relying on something like this.
Or if you want a cellphone case that actually does block EMF radiation, check out my DefendersShield Review.
eLink EMF Neutralizer – Wireless Tower Protection Device by E-Link Review
This is an interesting product, it is essentially a hollow tube with some sort of sand/rock/mineral mixture inside. Again, they give the same one-sentence generic description about CPU’s and radiation but give no specific information about what is in the product or how it works.
I don’t know of a comparable product I would trust, so I’ll just leave this one as it is. Again, there are some reviews on the Amazon listing where people say that they feel better or are sleeping better, so I don’t want to discount the benefit these people are getting. I just personally have no way to know that this product works, and have a hard time trusting it because of that.
There are SO many EMF protection products on the market, and the trouble is that many of them are nearly impossible to test by conventional or scientific methods.
As an example, you can check out my buyers guide on EMF radiation blankets to see an example of a product that is very easy to test and to trust. The blankets contain a material that literally blocks the radiation, and you can test this with your own meter.
However, products like these from eLink, or products from Aulterra, you have to trust their science (which I’m ok admitting can often be skewed) as well as the way people feel when they use it.
I’m going to do my best to weed out products I think are worth it, and products that probably aren’t, but make sure you rely on your own research and instinct when it comes to EMF protection products.
