The Difference between the Faraday Bags and the Faraday Cages.
Among the many products out there that claim to provide EMP protection, the faraday bags, and the Faraday cages are the best and most popular. As long as they are made with the same specification and quality levels, the offer the same level of the EMP protection. There is however general controversies when it comes to which one of them is better, and here are some of the differences that they have and an opinion on which is better.
We start with the Faraday cage which is a closed structure that is used to help with the protection against most types of cyber-attacks and radio interference. The cages are sometimes used for the whole building or room, and also to protect people from things like lightning because all the electrical currents are conducted by the exterior. This faraday cage principle has been used widely today in so many electrical devices and things like the cables and the microwave, and the idea is to keep the electromagnetic energy of the electrical currents where they should be. Their cost is one of their cons, and this is for both buying and also the shipping because they are also bulky.
Being bulky also makes carrying them around a problem because they are heavy, and will probably take up a lot of space inside the bag. With the many sellers out there, getting a poor quality is very easy and you will actually never know it until it is too late. The faraday bags are more advanced and modern than the Faraday cages although they use the same principle. This means that they will protect your sensitive electronic devices from the string EMP attacks, alongside other things like the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi frequency, cell signals.
They are med of many layers and materials, which makes them thick and the electronic devices inside are insulated from everything including the light and the water. As compared to the Faraday cages, they are way less expensive. They are also way flexible and light, which makes them, great for when you want to carry your devices as they can also be bent and expanded to fit more. In short, the faraday bags are everything that the Faraday cages are, only more advanced and modern, economical and portable making them a better choice. You should never confuse these with the Mylar or the ESD bags because they are not the same and also not as effective.
