Overview Of The GoDark Products
GoDark has a great selection of products that help give you protection for your electrical devices. Some of their products are Faraday Bags, Wallets and Belts, Key Fob, and they have bundles of several products put together.
GoDark says on their about us page: “Our mission, driven by this belief, is to provide exceptionally durable Faraday bags that reliably support a high duty cycle, are intended for use under real-world conditions, and will not fall apart or stop working with basic wear and tear.”
“Whether your concerns are privacy and location tracking, health concerns, or you just want to protect your electronics from external static or electromagnetic damage such as from an EMP, GoDark Bags has it covered… literally.”
Unpacking the products from my perspective makes it clear the quality and time have been put into the development aspects of each one.
The marketing manual materials are done very well, they are clear and give you a solid great overview of each product.
An Important Need for Privacy In An Electronic World
“Everywhere on the planet, dozens of companies — largely unregulated, little scrutinized — are logging the movements of tens of millions of people with mobile phones and storing the information in gigantic data files.” – Twelve Million Phones, One Dataset, Zero Privacy- New York Times
We are living in a day when electronic transactions and electronic devices can trace your every movement and what you are doing, your preferences and likes.
GoDark is fulfilling a great need to give us privacy and complete anonymity when we need it.
When our devices are shut off some of them are still on: “When you turn your phone off, it can instead enter a low-power state with full receiving and transmitting capability and you would never know it. The screen will turn off. You would not detect heat either, so it would provide the false impression that your phone is turned off and keeps you safe from tracking. Apple’s “Find My” app offers a good example of this.”
One user leaves a comment on the GoDark site: “Privacy is critical at this time in history.” We cannot agree more.
Phones don’t have a 3,4 or 5g signal, they also have GPS, wifi and Bluetooth.
GoDark Faraday Bag for Phones
For normal people, the biggest use case for DarkGo products is probably the Faraday bag for cell phones.
Its use is great for nighttime sleeping to have your phone signals completely stopped to minimize any radiation exposure while you sleep. Another use is to have the bag with you when travelling and not needing the phone during the day so there is no signal on your body.
GoDark Faraday Bags are military-strength Faraday bags that protect your cell phones, tablets, and other electronics from location tracking, hacking, and damage by blocking all incoming and outgoing EMF signals between 200 MHz and 40 GHz, including GPS, Cell Phones, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Each GoDark Bag is made with 2 layers of GoDark RF shielding fabric, which has been independently lab-tested to provide an average of 105 dB of EMF signal attenuation and has passed the MIL-STD-188-125-2 standardized military test for High Altitude EMP shielding.
Blocks EMF (4G, 5G, Wifi, Bluetooth)
Stops Cell Phone Tracking
Shields Digital Devices from EMP
Will this bag keep my phone safe from an EMP? Yes, a GoDark bag will protect your electronic devices’ function and data from EMPs. The GoDark bag uses two layers of military-grade RF shielding fabric. Without an actual EMP to test with it is impossible to guarantee, however, based on this test we believe GoDark Faraday Bags offer strong protection from an EMP.
It’s a great option to store a backup phone in case of an EMP (Electronic Magnetic Pulse) event.
GoDark Slim Wallet (RFID Protection)
Another great product is GoDark’s RFID wallet which protects your debit and credit cards from theft.
The smooth outer wrap fits comfortably in the palm of your hand while the metal core actively shields your cards from RFID wireless theft and keeps your sensitive data from prying eyes.
The dimensions for the wallet are 4.0 x 2.6 x 0.5 in (10.16 x 6.6 x 1.27 cm).
It holds up to 1-6 cards and has a nice clip if needed. Especially during travel trips that might be a go-to option for some people.
GoDark Faraday Dry Bag (10 L)
This is one of the products of GoDark that I am the most excited about for several reasons.
Imagine a durable product, that keeps your items dry from moisture and also keeps them safe from EMP dangers. This tri-fold protection makes this bag the ultimate prepper’s necessity for storing items in your go-bag or in longer-term storage.
Personally, I am using this drybag to put in phones, radios, and other small electronic devices and batteries to keep as part of a go-bag in an emergency situation.
These bags are waterproof with an IPX7 rating for reliable protection against water damage.
A person who bought the bag said: “Didn’t expect the material to be so solid, you can expect this bag to last forever. Excellent design with a rather cool look, love it.”
The Dry bags have 2 layers of RF shielding material. There is a very nice soft material sewed into the inside of the bag to keep devices from being scratched or damaged.
The layer outside the bag is very durable with a PU-coated and TPU laminated 600D Polyurethane material with fully welded seams which are puncture resistant.
The GoDark team even recommends you do a water test on your bag to ensure zero defects in their instruction manual.
Love the confidence and quality in the product.
