not accurateMar 31, 2012
By Bob This thing is quite a battery hog (AAA size). Had an alocohol sensor unit that cost more and seemed to be more accurate than this one for a decade before it quit working. This one registered a 0.01 after a beer a few nights back- seems to work so far. Don't drink that much nowadays but I want to know just where I stand... One can get into serious trouble if he hurts/kills someone while driving impaired.
Will update this after I compare it to the BACtrack S80 fuel cell model that I recently ordered arrives.
Update: Drank two beers 24 oz. total. Here are the results as my body eliminated the alcohol. Three digit numbers on the left are the pricy fuel cell model results.
6:56pm .029 vs. .06 BAC 7:12pm .022 vs. .04 7:21pm .020 vs. .03 7:38pm .016 vs. .03 8:36pm .000 vs. .00
The two digit numbers on the right are this inexpensive keychain model. The three digit numbers on the left are the BACtrack S80 $136. model. My stomach was completely empty when I did the above comparison. My old alcohol sensor unit seemed to be more accurate than this one. A fuel cell model is the way to go if you really need accuracy and not a vague idea... This is little more than a keychain trinket/party toy as far as I am concerned.
Blew into a fuel cell looking model years back when a cop thought I was drunk. He was puzzled for I was well below 0.08 but had alocohol on my breath... Am glad I have an accurate fuel cell breathlizer now. Cheap insurance considering the potential ramifications of being over 0.08% BAC. Figure on the high probability of a blood test for any and all drugs if you look/smell/act impaired. The courts have upheld the use of blood tests at the discretion of the cops.

Not accurateApr 03, 2012
By Pablo Escobar I blew .00 with this product but blew .016 with a breathalyzer at a police station. If you need accuracy get a breathalyzer that uses fuel cell technology to detect alcohol. It's what the police departments use. No sense in using this if you want to know if your under the legal limit or if you shouldn't be drinking and need to blow for probation.

Works greatJan 08, 2012
By mommaof3 With my daughter's 21st birthday coming up, I wanted to get her a breathalyzer. I bought this one based on all of the positive reviews and have not been disappointed. The keychain size is perfect for fitting into her purse which means it's always with her. It appears to be very accurate. Tip: Mints will increase your BAC level by .01 so use the device before you pop a mint in your mouth.

Very accurate!Mar 03, 2013
By Ayleesa I love this breathalyzer. My friend is a cop and we tested this with the breathalyzer he uses for work. Both got the same results. The battery life isn't the greatest but it's not horrible. Just keep some extra batteries in your glovebox and you're set

This is a great little breathalyzer that actually works!Nov 22, 2011
By Dawn This is a great little breathalyzer that actually works! Finally a company has produced a keychain breathalyzer that is accurate and easy to use. I have tried some keychain units in the past and there were useless. This one will actually display the digits for your readout instead of some flashing lights. It's also small to keep in your pocket if you don't want everyone seeing a breathalyzer on your keyring. Will be getting more for some holiday gifts for friends.
