    I am the coolest person at the party

    Product review: Efficient. It comes with 4 mouth pieces for when you have to test your friends. I wash them in the top rack of the dishwasher and soak them in disinfectant. While the breathalyzer will give you and immediate estimate of your drunkness, you have to wait 20 minutes after eating or drinking anything for a perfectly accurate number. It's fine, you just have to have a 20 minute wind down from the party. I think that everyone who drinks or cares about their friends who drink, should have one on their keychain. Only one downside: remember how the back battery cover of your gameboy somehow always got lost and then one day you stopped caring because "hey, it still works"? Yeah, same thing. I lost the battery cover about a week after I bought it. I put one those little clear rubber bands around it, so my battery wouldn't fall out when every I dropped my keys. My experience: My friends like to have a party every couple of weeks and sometimes it gets a little.... out of control. Not only is this great party fun (pass the breathalyzer), but it has most definitely helped me save a life or two. Everyone party has that one person who swears "No IIII"mmm fiiiiiiiine. I can TOTALLY drive. It's cool," and everyone cringes with fear at the thought, but no matter what anyone says, they just keep trying to leave. It's become a ritual that at the end of the party, everyone gets the test before they leave. Those not at 0.00 get to stay until they are or spend the night on the couch. I won't have anyone endangering themselves or anyone else by drinking and driving. It's interesting though, I wasn't that popular or cool and I guess I'm still not the socialite everyone wishes I were, but because I got this breathalyzer, and forced it on everyone, I am more respected and I definitely get invited to more parties.

    Don't waste your money

    I work in law enforcement and deal with the results of Preliminary Breath Tests (PBTs) constantly. After drinking about 6+ beers with some friends one night, one police officer friend brought out a professional, road tested breathalyzer for use on actual DUI investigations. I blew a .05 on this device, after waiting the prescribed 15-20 minutes after my most recent drink. I blew a .14 on the professional breathalyzer. Usually the professional breathalyzers are off by a factor of 10-20% from the actual BAC result via blood draw. Hence, their inadmissibility in court. However, this device gave such a drastically incorrect reading, and did so consistently, that it could not be trusted. My friends also experienced similar poor results with this. I had just purchased the device and put a new battery in it, so I know it was not that. I would spend the extra $50 bucks and buy the $80-$85 version of their product if you want a reliable breathalyzer. Also, anytime a breathalyzer registers positive for the presence of alcohol, one should not be driving a vehicle. Impairment truly does begin at the first drink, and sadly, examples abound about individuals receiving injuries or killing people after having BAC results that are actually *under* the legal limit. Even if you are in an accident and not at fault, you can get a DUI. In any event: this is a chintzy product. Skip it and pay a few dollars and get something more legitimate.

    Handy Keychain Unit is Easy to Use & Reliable

    in my opinion, this handy little keychain unit is "easy to use" & it reliably measures BAC ~ (as far as I can determine) the first day I got it ~ I tried testing it, both before & after having a glass of wine; I blew a flat 0.00 before the glass of wine &, after the glass of wine, it definitely sensed my BAC (which was something like 0.03, if memory serves). I wanted to "practice" with it first, so I would be prepared, in case an "emergency" situation arose (as, I wouldn't want to be fumbling with it, trying to figure out how to use it, as a cop is approaching my vehicle). I would say, it was an "easy learning curve".....(I recommend practicing with it first). Just follow the instructions & listen for the beeps & you will be met with success! I got the hang of it after only a few trys. All you just have to do is: (1) hold the little silver button down (on the end) & it starts a countdown (from 26), visible on the display; (2) listen for the "beep" & start "blowing" (1 short beep signals for you to start "blowing", 1 long beep signals as you are blowing); &, (3) when the signal stops ~ you stop! (blowing). it's "as Simple as 1, 2, 3".....

    Great Price - Exceeded my expectations.

    Full Disclosure I bought this as a Deal of the Day at 19.99. I have had larger and much more expensive BAC units that are cumbersome and are inaccurate right out of the box. This compact unit is so easy to use and it is accurate. I blow 0.00 and its right and if I have a couple of drinks I can blow multiple times in a short period and the reading is the same. Keep in mind this is a novelty if you blow 0.05 and drive you are taking a huge risk as you could be DWAI in many states and in fact you may not have fully absorbed all of the booze you drank and my be over the limit. Telling the cop or judge your personal unit said you were 0.05 won't keep you out of Jail. How I use it is to help me guage how much my BAC is per drink and actually to have some fun at parties (in my house with no driving) to have people guess their BAC or to guess who has the highest BAC. Similar units from this company I have seen in other stores for over $50 so even at full price of about 30 at BB it is still a good price. I'm thinking of buying one for a friend.

    Zero if i could

    jslim86

    I had 5 drinks. I measured well after i stopped drinking and some of the shots i had were at least 4 hours previous. I had stopped drinking at least an hr and a half before i measured and it said. 08... knowing it was wrong i ignored it. Tried it again a few minutes later and it said .10 keep in mind I'D STOPPED DRINKING about 2 hrs before that point... tried it again a few minutes later and it says .11 so i have zero confidence in this product. I've read reviews here and elsewhere and the bactrack S80 appears to be the best (the reviews on this website date back to 2010 and and it appears to have gotten a lot better then what it was 6 years ago. I would say try that but avoid the key chain unit because it's not accurate at all

    The BACTrack has given me extra peace of mind to know that I or friends won't try the "I think I'm just fine to drive home" tactic. This device is small and can easily be added to a key ring or put into a pocket. $30 is a small and easy price to pay knowing that yourself, family, and friends are safe and legal to drive after drinking alcohol. It also helps keep the ones, you know who have had too much to drink, from getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. It's better to blow into your own breathalyzer than into a police officer's breathalyzer. As the packaging states, wait 20 minutes after food or drink before blowing into the tester. It will give a much higher reading (about .02+) if you blow right after having an alcoholic drink. As with all drinking, be responsible.

    Perfect for College Bound

    Always being the "Helicopter Mom" why would I stop when she is away at college? Ha! That couldn't happen. I had to pick up something at BB when I saw this and thought, "Yes, good idea!" I gave it to my daughter who said, "Mom, I don't even drink." Well this novelty may keep a friend from driving and allow her to take the keys. If nothing else I t will keep it on the forefront of their minds. After we arrived and moved her in, we did a test on me as we left the restaurant and again when we arrived back at the hotel. My BAC went up .01% during the 5 minute drive. We all can learn, right?

    Calibration every 6 months

    So.. didn't do much research and bought this because it seemed like it could be useful and not bad at about $30. Then I get it home and read that it needs to be recalibrated every 6 months which is a $25 fee and involves shipping to California. Wish I didn't even buy it in the first place. Also found out that the more expensive ones have to be recalibrated every year so none of these are products you can use down the line without additional costs and hassles.
