The following are the EMF meters that I personally use and recommend. They all serve a specific purpose in measuring the four types of EMF, are of good quality and are the best price I have found on the web.
Note: To take the mystery out of choosing which meters to purchase, I recommend my favorite combinations of testing devices on this Meter Package Page. They will help you measure all four types of EMF pollution. Additionally, when you purchase both a RF meter and a Magnetic/Electric Field meter below, you get a 15% discount on the combination. This is only through SLT.co when you use the code EMFA-10 at checkout.
|The Cornet ED88T is one of the best EMF measurement devices for your money. It measures microwave radiation (RF) and low frequency magnetic and electric fields and has a sound component, which is very useful. This meter is easy to travel with and allows you see if an environment has a high amount of EMF pollution.
It can be found here for $169.
|This Gigahertz Solutions HF35C is an excellent consumer RF meter. It has a sound component for each type of microwave radiation pollution (cell towers, Wi-Fi, “smart” meters, etc.) and is sensitive to 0.1 uW/m^2. Because it has a directional antenna, it helps you easily find the contributing sources of RF exposure. A video showing how this meter operates can be seen below.
This RF meter can be found here for $312, which is an excellent value. Use coupon code EMFA-10.
|The Acoustimeter AM-10 is another good consumer level RF meter. It covers a wide-range of RF frequencies and has a LCD / LED display, along with a sound component, which makes this an easy meter to use. However, it is not directional and not as sensitive as the HF35C seen above, so finding certain RF sources can be more difficult with this meter.
The Acoustimeter AM-10 can be found here for $338. Use coupon code EMFA-10 for a 10% discount at checkout.
Here is a video that shows how this meter works.
I also really like the Acousticom 2, which is smaller and less expensive, but has the same sensitive RF detection ability (through the sound function) as the Accoustimeter AM-10. It is an excellent wide-range RF meter for $162 with your 10% discount.
|This Stetzer meter measures certain frequencies of EMI / dirty electricity pollution that is on your electrical wiring. This component of EMF pollution has grown the past few years because of CFL & LED lighting, dimmer switches and solar inverters. See the video below.||The Body Voltage Meter is an indirect way of measuring 60 Hz electric fields by determining how they are interacting with your body. Turning off circuit breakers and using MC cable wiring will reduce these electric fields.|
The Gigahertz Solutions ME3830B Electric / Magnetic Field Meter is an easier way to measure the AC electric fields in your home ($199). This meter measures the electric field within the surrounding environment caused by voltage in unshielded electrical wiring. EMF professionals suggest that safe readings for most people are between 0.3 and 1.5 V/m. Electro-sensitive people should try to get below 0.3 V/m in their sleeping and work environments (usually by turning off the appropriate circuit breakers). Unfortunately, the ME3830B meter is only sensitive to 1.0 V/m. You can upgrade to the Gigahertz Solutions ME3851A electric/magnetic field meter to get to the sensitivity of 0.1 V/m. This meter can also be grounded, which adds to its accuracy. It is slightly more expensive at $356 (use coupon code EMFA-10 at checkout for a 10% discount), but is a much better meter than the ME3830B.
The Alpha Labs UHS2 Magnetic Field Meter is my favorite gauss meter. It is truly accurate as it measures in 3-axis and automatically calculates the readings. Most Gauss meters (including the ME 3851A directly above) only measure in one axis, so the user could be missing fields entirely. You can purchase this meter here for $279 with coupon code EMFA-10.
I also recommend the Line Noise EMI Meter. This meter is also made by Alpha Labs and measures the dirty electricity on your home wiring – like the Stetzer Meter above. This meter measures a broader range of frequencies though (2 KHz to 10 MHz). This meter is my preferred device for the measurement of dirty electricity in your home and can be purchased here for $117. Use the coupon code EMFA-10 for a 10% discount at checkout.
