Personal Breathalyzer Keychain with Flashlight

Your local police are not the only group of people allowed to own a breath Alcohol tester. Consumers too, can purchase their own personal breathalyzers. And if you want a portable one with other functions, you can get your personal breathalyzer keychain with flashlight for no more than $10.

The hand-held versions that your local law enforcers use are many times more expensive because they use a different and more advanced technology. Breathalyzers purchased and used by consumers are generally semiconductor-based in terms of their sensory capabilities. This gives them lesser accuracy, and of course, is cheaper than the ones used by the police.

Breathalyzers for consumers are screened and approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration, not the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that approves the breath alcohol analyzers used for law enforcement. The FDA checks for safety of the product and it must at least be proven effective by comparing to one or more legally marketed products. A Personal Breathalyzer Keychain with Flashlight is a handy gadget to have, if you plan to jump in the car after few drinks make sure you check your “BAC” before driving!

Breath Alcohol Analyzer

A breath Alcohol analyzer is commonly used by law enforcers to measure the breath alcohol content (BAC) of a subject. The law enforcer will ask a person of interest to blow into the device to derive a reading. A result of 0.08 and above is generally considered illegal in most states of the U.S.

However, not all states accept breath analyzers as viable evidence for the crime. South Dakota, for example, relies only on blood tests for their accuracy and disregards any form of field sobriety testing as a cause for arrest. On the other hand, the state of Idaho is more lenient in accepting results from preliminary breath testers. These instruments are usually hand-held in form and less accurate than the larger instruments but still produce results with high precision.

There are a number of brands accepted for use of law enforcement. The United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has a Conforming Products List that shows the approved instruments, including Breathalyzer.
