Nice Gadget but questionable accuracy – LCD Breathalyzer (Blood Alcohol Level Tester) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
The unit is smaller then expected and came in professional packaging with a good manual. It is very easy to use and the overall build quality is good.
Cons:
I am a bit concerned about the accuracy, although so far I only had one chance to test it, but after four 12 ounce beers over 2 hours it claimed a BAC of 0.01, which seems a bit low even for me (I am a pretty big guy and handle my alcohol well)
Other:
Its still a neat toy and with any resedual alcohol in you month you can easily produce a 0.05 or higher BAC.
Bottomline:
It's 10 bucks, what did I expect? Its a fun toy and I will take it to the bar this weekend - we'll see how it holds up.
