|Innovative and discreet, this FDA approved personal breathalyzer key chain keeps you easily informed of your blood alcohol level so you and your friends stay safe and responsible...even after that terrific birthday bash! Small enough to fit in your pocket, this personal breathalyzer also includes a timer to keep track of your parking meter and a powerful LED flashlight for those dark parking garages and alleys.
How it works: Sanitary and nearly fool-proof, simply blow into the top sensor for three seconds and test results are immediately shown via the colored LED indicator system. The Personal Breath Alcohol Tester will give you a close reading of your blood alcohol level, using a color-coding system to tell you whether or not you should give up the keys. A green LED means your blood alcohol level is below 0.02% - Safe. Yellow means 0.02% - 0.05% - Warning. Red and Yellow - above 0.05% - Danger!
Making for a safer night out, the gadget is easy to carry on your key chain, and includes count-down and count-up timers, as well as an LED flashlight torch function.

Nice little gadget to keep you safe.
Very useful product, Could save a lot of lives.
Works well; not right for me5/1/2012
I was seeking a timer with a VERY LOUD annunciator, and this was not the case with this product. It was properly described and worked just fine; but it was not exactly what I needed. Easy to use; worked well. Just not right for my application.
It looks like a good buy to me, we will see if the person I bought it for likes it as well...
Does not work8/22/2011
This item did not work out of the box....Waste of money. Cheap labor.

Too cheap to work right--and it did not. Bought two units hoping one would be good. Nope. One definitely defective--no torch light, no ready light. The other appears to function but the sensor suggests high BAC when it must be zero.
Hey, this thing works!4/18/2011
I think people claiming that this breathalyzer does nothing just didn't read the instructions. If you follow them carefully, it does work. Although, I have to have about 6 drinks before I blow yellow, so it may be inaccurate. I am a heavy guy though. It is cheap, and the instructions are hard to follow (even for setting the clock and stopwatch). Biggest disadvantage is this: Will it settle the 'who can drive?' argument? Not if you and your buddies are really drinking because several people may be between 0.05 and 0.08, which is still legal. It's good if you want to be careful. Anyone who blows red just can't drive. As a note, I think instructions for the breathalyzer are *hold* main button. *wait* for light to turn green (it does) *continue holding* for ten seconds. *blow* Open mouth. *wait a few seconds* Light will go to yellow or red if AC content is high.
Just because it is inexpensive does not mean it is12/29/2010
I do not recommend them. Difficult to use. Only gives you a range and nothing above .05%. They are priced cheaply but I do not think I would even use a free one.
Not worth the money12/26/2010
This item is not worth the money--did not work at all.
Don't Waste Your Money!12/15/2010
This is an absolutely useless piece of crap that's not even worth the wrapper it comes with. Nothing works: not the so called breathalyzer, not the timer, not even the "torch" which I assume is the dim little amber LED light that is hardly even visible! It is so cheaply made that even China would consider it below their lowest manufacturing standard! It is unconscionable to charge 5 cents for this piece of junk, let alone the $10 some of the sellers are charging. But if you want to return it, watch out for the shipping fee and the "restocking fee"!
you get what you pay for - don't rely on it12/8/2010
I got this hoping to use it as a guide for whether I need to call a cab. It is fairly compact, but the goodness stops there. You need to find 2 AAA batteries and get it working. The flashlight is dull. The start-up is unclear: is it ready? Oh, and by the way, I apparently have a BAC at (all) times. Rarely did I blow a green at any time of the day. In fact, sometimes just the air had a (b)ac when trying to calibrate. If that is not enought to make you not want it, the keychain mechanism broke the same day I got it. Go China!
Great way to get a baseline11/29/2010
It works to let you know when you're getting close, but it will only tell you if you're inside a wide range of drunkiness. Example: it will show the red light if it records you as at or above 0.05% (probably for liability reasons). For this reason, my friends and I have taken to using it as a tool to confirm one of us is *near* the limit, which has been enough to put an end to the "I'm finnne ta dribe mannn" argument on more than one occasion. As far as operation goes, it seems to be accurate on the first blow. But because this thing "smells"(collects) your breath, it's necessary to let it's "nose"(sensor) reset by airing it out for a couple minutes after your wasted friend snatches it from you and passes several hundred CFM of beer-filled air through the little toy. We've found it's possible to speed up the process of getting it back to the baseline green light by having a sober person blow through it. Overall, it's nice to have around and you can't beat the price!
I don't think it works10/1/2010
Well I tried all possible combinations .... without a result, yellow and red lights are always on... do not even think I got tooo drunk to test this thing (well I kinda did) ... its not accurate. wait for few more months a better product will be on the market. Its going back.
