Great for a few laughs, but that's it – LCD Breathalyzer (Blood Alcohol Level Tester) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Cheap
- Small enough to fit into a pocket
- Backlit display
- Nice packaging
Cons:
- Not very accurate
- Multiple ways to blow into it make it hard to know when you (or your friends)'re doing it right
- You have to turn it on again (and wait 10 seconds) for each measurement
Other:
I wouldn't buy it again, but since I have it, I'll keep it in my car just as a good conversation starter. I'm still puzzled why I was getting a 0.00 reading after two beers and my friends (after the same amount) a 0.10 - 0.20...
Bottomline:
There's a reason real breathalyzers cost 100s of dollars... :-P
