What Car AlcoSense Lite Review

 

AlcoSense Lite may be our entry level product but the design certainly doesn't cut any corners. It may not have all of the technology of the Elite but for the occasional user looking for an indication of their level of intoxication the AlcoSense Lite will more than fit the bill.

Easy to Use

Like it’s bigger brother, the AlcoSense Lite has been designed to be as easy as possible to use. To do a breath test all you need to do is turn the unit on, wait for it to count down to zero and then blow until it beeps while holding the Blow key down. Easy!

Scotland, England or both?

On 5th December 2014 Scotland lowered its drink drive limit from 0.8‰BAC (80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood) to 0.5‰BAC (50mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood), England and Wales stay at 0.8‰BAC. AlcoSense reads across both limits so you can use the Scottish or English version of the product in either territory. The Scottish version displays a ‘Don’t Drive’ alert from 0.3‰BAC upward and the English/Welsh version from 0.6‰BAC upwards.

Easy to Understand Results

AlcoSense™ Lite shows your level of intoxication in ‰ BAC (percent of blood alcohol content) and shows your reading in increments of 0.1 (If you require a more detailed readout or in mg/l please see the AlcoSense Elite). The AlcoSense Lite even alerts you when you are close to or over the drink drive limit. Please see the screen shots below.

Screen shots Alcosense Lite
Alcosense Lite

Sleek Design

Pocket sized, it can discretely be kept anywhere. AlcoSense™ Lite measures only 105mm (height) x 45mm (width) x 25mm (depth). It is powered by 3 x AAA batteries meaning that you can use it anywhere at any time.

Easy Cleaning & Maintenance

The AlcoSense Lite has an ASC feature, manually selected by the user, which is a deep clean of the sensor and should be undertaken periodically to remove containment like residual alcohol and oxidisation from the sensor. If you intend to use your system regularly we would suggest considering the AlcoSense Elite which automatically self cleans after every blow test.

Use it Again & Again

Using the latest sensor technology and innovations AlcoSense™ Lite can be used again and again meaning that it is a secure investment. We recommend waiting at least a minute between blow tests to allow any residual alcohol left in the blow chamber to evaporate, ensuring an accurate reading. If you wish to do multiple tests, one straight after the other, we recommend considering the AlcoSense Elite for its sensor clean and purge feature.

Alcosense Lite Design

Accurate

Every AlcoSense unit is tested for accuracy three times before leaving our factory. As a result our quality control is arguably the best in the industry meaning that you can have 100% faith in our products. AlcoSense Lite has industry leading accuracy of +/-0.2‰BAC which is unique in this price range. If greater accuracy is required please see the AlcoSense Elite.

Why Delay?

Part of the responsible enjoyment of alcohol is to understand its effect on the body and to understand when you are safe to drive, AlcoSense™ helps people do exactly that and takes out the potentially fatal guess work the morning after. Don’t leave it to chance, order yours today.

What Car Best Breathalyser under £40

 

AlcoSense Lite - Winner – Best Breathalyser under £40.

"Excellent performer for such a low price. Follow the instructions carefully and this budget unit can punch above its weight. The AlcoSense Lite was the best of the cheaper models, and not far off the best mid-priced units. The Lite is the pick of the discount devices."

"This was our cheapest device in our test, and can be picked up for around £40. It certainly doesn’t feel cheap though, and in my opinion has the nicest looking display of all of the devices we’ve tested. It’s results were around about on the mark. It performed formidably in the lab testing."

Diesel Car Breathalyser ReviewGroup Test Runner-Up
Winner: AlcoSense Elite

 

In December 2014 Diesel Car Magazine performed a group test of 9 consumer breathalysers, the AlcoSense Elite won the group test with the AlcoSense Lite coming in as runner up.

"Well priced for the quality. Ease of use is good. Very good accuracy with readout to one decimal place. Verdict is a simple and easy to use pocket breathalyzer"

 


 Sunday Post Breathalyzer Group Test WinnersGroup Test Runner-Up
Winner: AlcoSense Elite

On 7th December 2014 The Sunday Post newspaper performed a group test with 4 consumer breathalyzers pitched head to head against a Lion 500 Police Breathalyzer. The AlcoSense Elite won the group test, with the AlcoSense Lite finishing runner up. At the reference reading of 50mg/100ml of alcohol in blood the AlcoSense Elite exactly matched the Lion 500 Police Breathalyzer and after expetensive testing concluded:

"AlcoSense Lite: Closely matched Police standard unit"

 


 

 

Traffic Safe AlcoSense Lite Review

 

"Breath testing specialists at AlcoSense have a range of breathalyzers that are affordable, portable and easy to use and TrafficSafe took the AlcoSense Lite model to test over a period of six months. It’s been passed around the office, flung into briefcases, kept in glove compartments, forgotten, accidentally set off a couple of times when sat on and subjected to the usual rigours endured by portable electronics but it still looks good, works well and even still has the original batteries in it. Interpreting the readings is also simple. The display shows the %BAC figure and a warning triangle if you’re close to the 0.8% limit and a “don’t drive” symbol if you’re 0.8% or over. At just under £40, the AlcoSense Lite is an inexpensive addition to the contents of your glovebox and highly recommended.

"An affordable and reusable tool for testing your blood-alcohol levels...a useful device, particularly for the morning after the night before.."

"..we think the AlcoSense Digital Breathalyser Lite will indeed give you a good guide as to whether you are risking driving over the allowed limit."

"...having this gadget on hand will certainly give you a quick sense check the morning after should you be in any doubt."

Well worth the peace of mind.

by lurch on 25/07/2016

I purchased this as an indicator for the following morning drive. As I'm fully aware of how long alcohol can stay in your system and the increasing rate of people being caught out whole driving the morning after a few drinks. It is so small it no problem to pack and once set up requires very little doing with it. I have used it on several occasions and found it to be a great indicator of when you should or shouldn't drive. For the price it's well worth the piece of mind knowing your licence and safety are covered. Highly recommended and its less than I would spend on a night out so well worth the money and piece of mind.

A good investment

by Dr. Michael J. Atkins on 12/07/2016

B00QAMKDMC - I believe there have been some fake reviews. As a doctor, it is vital that I do not drink and drive. It is a fact that alcohol may be still in the blood in the morning after drinking the night before. I have had a cheaper machine which finally failed and bought this instead. It has had sound independent reviews and I think this is a good machine - why trust you licence and the safety of others on cheap machines? Follow the instructions, especially about alcohol based mouth washes!

by Amazon Customer on 29/06/2016

Tried it when it arrived and as hadn't been drinking it gave a LO reading as expected. Then in the evening had one wine and one pint lager, waited the appropriate period and reading was 0.4. Following next test was a couple of days later after a very sociable night with friends, the test the following morning was 0.8 and above the Scottish level, repeat checks after waiting and readings came down. It appears to work pretty well. I plan to have calibrated as per the recommendations. Only minus point is could have done with more of the tubes, although ordering more is easily done.A very good product.

2 yr review

by Vincent E. Williams on 14/06/2016

I've had mine for about 2 years now and always use it for "the morning after" check before driving. I've found its best to take three consecutive readings say 5 mins apart as the first reading isn't always consistent with the other two and its best to get a consistent average to make sure. If the first reading is quite a bit different, or you want to make doubly sure then run it through the in-built ASC clean cycle which takes a full 10 mins to complete, then try again, it always gives a consistent reading after doing that. Mine is the UK 0.8 limit version, it wont show trace alcohol below 0.2, it just shows this as LO which is fine for me. It gives a warning and advises not to drive at 0.5, then gives a hard DONT DRIVE at 0.8. Ive not had any problems with it over the 2 years and have confidence in its readings. I don't advise using it in the pub car park straight after a night out as this will probably contaminate the sensor inside with neat alcohol from your mouth and it will definitely need a deep clean afterwards to restore its calibration.

I read the reviews before I bought this and although some were negative most were good. For the first few days I experimented taking the reading at different times of day and after different levels of alcohol and it seemed to work as expected.I had my first night out this week and took a reading the following morning with was Lo so I felt fine getting in my car and driving home.You will never know if it is accurate but it is a guide so I would recommend it. If it shows any level above Lo I don't think I would drive, just in case!

Reassuring safeguard.

This is so easy to use & reassuring the morning after drinking. Wish I'd got one ages ago, rather than feeling edgy on occasions, just in case ! Not sure how accurate it would be soon after having a drink, due to reside in mouth/breath because I have checked it at other times out of interest, so I know the readings change a lot but certainly a confidence boost the next day, as long as you are OK of course.

A real eyeopener

by A. Bennett on 10/02/2016

I’d been fancying one of these after seeing an advert in a magazine. Finally went ahead and got one and its turned out to be a real eye opener. You really have no idea when you should be driving the night after a few drinks. I always saw the estimates as to how long alcohol takes to leave the system and thought they were massively exaggerated. How wrong was I! Tested it after a night round a friend’s house, I wasn’t legally able to drive until well into the early afternoon!I know now that I’ll have been over the limit the next day on several other occasions, I always tried not to drive the next day anyway and would never have driven first thing but this really shows you how long you should wait before getting behind the wheel. This gadget is probably a lifesaver.Very impressed with it overall, would strongly recommend them to anybody who’s ever wondered whether they should drive and have done it anyway.

Doesn't come with batteries. I bought it in the morning so I could test myself before driving to school for my exam retakes, and was extremely disappointed when I arrived at the establishment and consequently couldn't breathalyse myself. I am not happy, nor is Christie. Additionally, nowhere on the website to apply for the Stirling Moss (my formula one hero) meet and greet. Displeased doesn't even cover it.

AlcoSense Says:
We're sorry you didn't realise it didn't come with batteries. It is stated on the box contents and the website that 3 x AAA batteries are required and not included in the package. With regard to the competition link we are in the process of updating the site and the competition link is temporarily down.

by allan smith on 16/01/2016

This was a great buy - made a huge difference to the driving choices I made over Christmas and new year. It seems totally reliable and I felt much safer as a result. The lowere limit in Scotland now makes a device like this almost a must if you are drinking the night before. I bought additional tubes which meant the family also got use of the device. At approx £40 it represents great value when you consider what is at stake.

Brilliant product.

by Amazon Customer on 15/01/2016

Brilliant product...after all the hype & scaremongering about drink driving limits (in Scotland) l bought this more as a learning guide about how your alcohol count is the 'morning after' l DO NOT condone drink driving whatsoever but after work on a Friday l like to have 3 or 4 pints of beer with my work colleagues & this product helped me keep enjoying my few beers as with a good meal & a good nights sleep after these beers my sample was 'LO' which means 0.2% or less & in Scotland the limit is 0.5%...

Perfect if in doubt gadget

by Gray on 14/01/2016

Perfect if in doubt gadget, bought this for the festive period, I was fine and felt at ease the morning after, a family member however decided to walk the morning after because he knew he was over the limit, if it stops one person from drink driving then its more than worth it.Highly recommended for those who wonder if they are over the limit, especially the morning after.

For the drivers who like the odd scoop or 3

by V.Roberts on 13/01/2016

A very handy piece of kit for the morning after a heavy night. Unpacked it, fitted own batteries and tested it that morning. Simple to use and results were conclusive within seconds. I could drive after a moderate night out but the Mrs was still over the limit even after 10 hours. Beer 'v' wine I reckon, or rather the alcohol units in the French wine lake she tried to consume! Useful to keep handy and helps in understanding if you're over-the-limit or just suffering an extended hangover.

Good piece of kit

by M. W. Lee on 13/01/2016

Bought this one to replace my first breath tester (£6.95 cheapo ) whose screen was really difficult to read and whichdidn't have much longer to live. I would recommend my new one for ease of use and sturdiness and I've checked the result against my old one and they concur - I think considering the potential consequences this is good insurance - used mainly for the morning after.

by racey1979 on 12/01/2016

Bought one of these due to a friend being banned as he was caught over the limit the day after a night out. It has really been an eye opener for me, if I went on a night out, I was horrified to find I was still illegal by mid afternoon the next day. I now simply do not drive the next day to be on the safe side if I've been on a heavy night out. As for the unit itself I am really impressed, it's well made, easy to use and the results are very consistent. It appears to be accurate too, I tested it by drinking two pints of lager and waiting 30 mins. The unit showed I was borderline illegal which I would imagine is about right. The use of a breathalyser is fine as long as it's done in the right way. You should not use it as a way of testing yourself whilst out drinking to see if you can drive. If you go out drinking, you shouldn't drive, full stop. This is more for the next day if you have been out to make sure you stay on the right side of the law. I guarantee the results will surprise you.

GENUINE CUSTOMER REVIEW - ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED WITH PRODUCT

Was fed up wondering if my son was okay to drive the day after drinking bought this for his christmas stocking. It was dispatched in plenty time but unfortunately it was not delivered in time for Christmas by the Royal Mail which was disappointing as I was assured it would arrive on 24th December. However I have to say I am delighted with the product which appears more accurate than other models and would recommend it to anyone thinking of purchasing it.

From my own little experiments it does indeed appear to fairly accurately indicate the level of alcohol in your blood.

That morning after Feeling

by Dave Thomson on 13/12/2015

If you have ever woken up after a really good night out and wondered should I drive. Chances are the answer should be no but you will never know for sure without the use of your AlcoSense. Now with this highly accurate scientific instrument you can have your answer in less than a minute. Clearly stated the read out will tell you whether you should drive or not and if you can't read then the display changes to red to warn you not to drive. The handy size means that easily stowed away for use. I highly recommend this product. Great support service also

The Fabulous AlcoSence Breathalyzer

by Margaret on 12/12/2015

"We bought this breathalyser from Boots. My husband is a taxi driver and uses it on any mornings he has had a drink the night before. When it indicates his breath is low he has the confidence to go to work without the fear of being over the limit. It has been a great help to assist him on his decision on wither to drive or not, without guessing if he still has the "" morning after over the limit breath"". The Breathalyser did break down and I called AlcoSense who emailed me a returns form. We returned it and they replaced it with no quibble or fuss. Fantastic service. All of this adds up to the 5 star rating we have given the AlcoSense Breathalyser."

Seams to work as advertised. But.....

by Alligin on 11/12/2015

"When testing with 2x 440ml of 4.8 lager the unit puts me very close to the English drink drive limit. After waiting 30 mins etc. Accurate reading. :-) Once you get over the limit the unit just displays ""Hi"" fair enough. The thing I'm not too sure about is the reading the next morning. The ""average"" person can remove 1 unit of alcohol per hour. If I drink to excess to test the AlcoSence (recording each unit of alcohol I drink...printed on the can) Using 1 unit per hr ""I can assume"" I'm on the limit to drive by ""X"" time. In my tests Ive found in using the AlcoSence that I'm 0.20 BAC. When using 1 unit per hr removal I should be 0.80 BAC. That's not to say AlcoSence is wrong. Maybe my body removes the alcohol faster than the ""average"" person. I don't know? The only true test is a police breathalyser. I don't want to find out which is correct!"

Great Morning After Device

by Rory on 01/12/2015

I bought this before we went on a road trip through the Western Balkans in September/October as I wanted to make sure I was fit for driving after sampling the delightful wines the night before. Works very well, I have a BAC calculator app on my iPhone and when I tested it with several glasses of wine the results were very similar. Strongly recommended as a morning after device, especially as the festive season approaches.I bought the 0.05% version for use in Scotland which is the same as the countries we travelled through. I'd recommend this version for 0.08% countries like England as it gives you extra safety - now knowing what it feels like with a BAC of 0.05% I wouldn't drive!

The device is reasonably quick and easy to use, and assuming that its as accurate as it claims to be, provides a means of checking that you are not still over the next morning. There is a self calibration process that will give re-assurance that the device is working ok too. The company that sell it also provide a calibration service and can re-calibrate the display if the legal limit is changed as it was in scotland recently. Anyone buying the device should be aware that there are scottish and english versions as the law is different now.

by M. Baugh on 20/11/2015

I have used this as a morning after check, so far so good. You need to read the instructions before use, set-up takes about 10 minsIt’s very interesting to use the tester on people coming back to the house the morning after the night before to pick up their cars. Even at 3pm some friends were still registering a fair amount of alcohol in their breath. It must be an indication of how good the party was.Note, you need to wait 5 mins before a successive test is done, it doesn’t mention that in the adverts.

The AlcoSense breathalyser is a great product. Small, lightweight, easy to carry and easy to use. There have been occasions when I've had a drink in the evening and would naturally assume I was ok to drive by the next morning. But alcohol can take longer to clear your system than you think and the AlcoSense has shown that I'm not clear of alcohol even though I felt ok. I've seen other breathalysers which are must more expensive and are no more accurate or reliable. The AlcoSense is accurate and great value for money. This is just what you need for the morning after and could just save your licence - better to be safe than sorry.

Fabulous education tool

by Mr David Bradley on 29/07/2015

The breathalyser is a must for every household. I use it as an education tool on lessons as I am a driving instructor. It is very easy to use and the blow straws make it easy for many separate users.

Surprising results!

by David Goatham on 29/07/2015

Had a more basic model and changed to this. Both displayed generally low results even when having exceeded the usual guidelines by about 75%.about an hour on...tried on others and the the same. This is the usual 'sensible drinking' not on an empty stomach etc, but say dinner with drinks. Have made it say high, but usually by using it too soon after consumption. Never had a morning after result that was anything but Lo! Must try harder!

I wouldn't be without it, it's peace of mind with a back up second to none.

by Mr Hugh Jones on 27/07/2015

I wouldn't consider drinking and driving, ever, but, the morning after, well that's another thing. I'm self employed so loosing my licence would wind up my business immediately. In fact, I've just tested myself after a day out with my mates, yesterday and I won't be behind that wheel anytime soon,the strange thing is, I feel great , no after effects from drinking all day yesterday, but the alcosense reading is way off the scale, just goes to show that the alcohol stays in your system for an awfull long time, no matter how well you feel. It cost me about ?60 small price to pay for peace of mind and a clean licence.

Do not do breakfast in McDonalds anymore if I am off at weekends.

by Peter Scott on 26/07/2015

I used to get up on Saturday or Sunday mornings and wanting a McDonalds breakfast, which is only available until 10.30. I always felt ok and would jump in the car and get there around 10.15. I decided to look into my routine as I do not get every weekend off, it maybe I am working Saturday or Sunday. I saw an advert about AlcoSense so thought I would do a test. I ordered a meter and thought I would be ok. I had my usual Friday drink and felt ok on Saturday as normal. Checked the level and was Hi. I then waited an hour did it again, Hi. I went shopping at 3pm when it was Lo. I know I could have gone when it was below the limit but I wanted to see how long any residual alcohol was in my system. I was shocked. I used the device when I was off work and not driving to find how much I can safely consume and be below the legal level the day after. It has redefined my drinking. Only it can vary if you do it outdoors as opposed to indoors, i only use an alcohol free mouthwash now as that can kick it off. Smoking affects it but it does state that on the instructions. Best bit of kit I have bought as it gives me great guidance on what I can and cannot drink and be fit to drive. I would recommend to everyone to use this device

Not great - but useful

by Jase on 05/04/2015

Purchased this device as a 'morning after' safety checker. I went for this product as it received the 'what car' magazine award for best breathalyzer. The device itself feels cheap and plasticy. It comes with a few clear tubes that you use to blow in. My only annoyance at this device is that it works on the USA measurement system of BAC rather than Milligrams of alcohol in millitires of breath, so can be confusing to read. However the US drink drive limit is actually lower than the UK drink drive limit so it's an additional fail safe! You blow into the machine after it does an 8 second count down. The machine will then tell you if you are over the drink drive limit or under. If you are under the device will show LO if it can detect alcohol but you are safe to drive. If you are not safe to drive a little icon will appear advising you not to drive. More often than not though the machine shows error and you have to perform the self test again and repeat the process.Would i buy again... no. However it is a useful failsafe if you value your licence the morning after a big night out

Worth persevering, product eventually better than the overall service provided.

by R Drake on 12/02/2015

I first purchased the product at Halfords as a Christmas present for an occasional drinker who drives for a living. It didn't work, we could not even get the set-up process to complete without the device advising of a problem. Went to Halfords, no in-store product knowledge. However I then copied Alcosense who responded promptly and said it might be a faulty unit and asked me to send it to them. A week or so later they sent me a replacement and that one worked immediately and we are now satisfied with the product.

Over the Limit?

by Sheila Lange on 20/01/2015

Purchased this item as my husband is a driving instructor and on occasions has felt the need to refuse taking pupils on their lessons if he can smell alcohol on their breath the morning after they've been out drinking! Obviously, this has caused problems as they have been understandably "put out" at his refusal to take them on their lesson. He now breathalises any "offending" pupils to show them just how much they are still "over the limit" the following day! It's been an eye-opener to many of them. Plus, we have a 21 year old who he also breathalises if she's had a heavy night and intends driving the following day! It's certainly made HER think twice about her alcohol intake! Obviously, the results must only be taken as a guide, but an "over the limit" reading certainly puts things into perspective.

AMAZING PRODUCT AND GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE

by JobyJak on 28/06/2014

They sold out of this one so sent me the more expensive elite version instead free of charge. The elite version is amazing, so accurate. Initially its a bit fiddly, you need to get a cotton bud put it in a bit of wine and water, and then dab it on the sensor. All this does is "wake up" the sensor. You only have to do it once. Make sure you follow the instructions well. Once that is done, the product works like a dream, I have used it loads of time and everytime it has been spot on. The battery is still lasting and I bought it at Christmas.Its a big eye opener to how alcohol stays in your body. A must have for anybody who drives the day after drinking and is always wondering if they are still over the limit.

Having never been stopped by the police and breathalysed I can't really comment on it's accuracy.

Be Sensible

by Mr J White on 27/03/2014

Bought this gadget at Xmas to give me piece of mind that I wasn't over the limit the morning.The unit requires an initial set up procedure so it is not a device that you can start to use straight out of the box.The instructions are clear on how to set it up and once it's ready it is very easy to use.My wife drove me home from the pub one night and we decided to test it out, I had 4 pints and the Breathalyser burst into action glowing red and telling me I was over the limit, the wife tested it straight after having only 1 drink and her reading came up low.This little unit is perfect for making an informed decision, I actually felt like I was fit to drive but having the device to correct my ill conceived opinion may have just saved my licence.It is small enough to fit in your glovebox or the wife's handbag. If you are like me and are tempted to have a glass of wine with your meal when out with friends and family, be sensible and use the AlcoSense.

good buy

by jennie tunley on 27/03/2014

I bought this for my son at Christmas time to emphasise to him how long alcohol stays in his system and therefore not to drive the next day. I have to say myself and my husband have also used it on many occasions too. Its a good indicator for safety and very easy to use. I would happily recommend others to purchase it too.

Very handy

by Morton Anderson on 27/03/2014

I think this is an excellent product. After a little bit of set up, all explained in the manual, it could not be more easy to use. I've tested it extensively with friends and family and I think it's very accurate. A must for anyone who needs to keep their driving licence to work. I happily recommend this product

by Paul Ryan on 26/03/2014

A brilliant piece of equipment! Great value for money!I bought the breathalyzer for my fiancée as a stocking filler a few days before Xmas. It arrived in enough time, and to be honest, she was over the moon with it! It has proven to be extremely useful for those occasions that she has needed to drive the next day after a get together with friends or family.To top it all off, I got a few brownie points too!I would definitely recommend it. It is great value for money, and worth having for peace of mind!

Bought two of these, one for me and one for my dad. Actually ordered cheaper version but was upgraded to this version free of charge as they had none of the cheaper version in stiock - which was great.Fairly easy to use and seems to give reliable results. With this version you can breathalyse your whole extended family at breakfast the next morning after a party - very interesting!

Perfect for all the family

by Moneypenny on 19/03/2014

We bought this mainly for my son when he got his licence back from a drink driving offence and it was to use for the morning after as he would never entertain driving again if having a drink on an evening anyway. So far, he uses it every time he has had a drink the night before and also, as a family, we have all used it to make sure we are clear from driving and not over the limit. We have found the breathalyzer accurate and interesting as sometimes, it has been after lunchtime before being able to drive and without this machine, we may have driven as I am sure happens so often with others. Get one, its well worth the money, the risk and putting danger to anyone elses life as well. Its compact, no bigger than a mobile phone and costs no more than a meal out and a bottle of wine for two.

essential if you have kids who drive

by ken on 28/01/2014

This is easy to use and gives a clear indication if you should not drive. A quick check if you have had alcohol the night before has surprised the whole family about how long it takes to be safe again. There are other less expensive products on the market but it is worth spending some extra money to get a recommended product which you can rely on.

This firm gave many of its customers, including me, a free upgrade as they could not fulfil all of the orders placed at Christmas. This puts them at the top of their game in my opinion, and is the standard others should aspire to. Well done Nick Morgan and all at Gadgets4Travel for the best customer service I've experienced in years.As for the product, the upgrade is a fantastic bonus for me on what was already the best product of its kind on the market-bar none.

Good value and nicely made

by D James on 02/12/2013

I purchased an AlcoSense Lite for a relation who just passed their driving test and have an Elite myself. The Lite is very well made and has a reassuring feel to it. When tested together against the AlcoSense Elite the Lite read the same readings from both of us and where I would expect them to read for what we drank. Both easy to use once setup. I would recommend reading the instructions as you wouldn't expect things like being out of breath when doing the test can affect the result. Great product and highly recommended. Apparently AlcoSense is a BRITISH company - I'm glad to see we're still good at something!Comparing the two models the Elite gives more detailed reading to two decimal places rather than one. The Elite also has a blow pressure sensor which means it should give you slightly more accurate readings. Having played with both models they are both good and easy to use but the Elite gives a little more peace of mind having the blow pressure sensor.

Useful gadget

by sian848 on 28/11/2013

All the "drinkers" in our family have tested this out the morning after, and it's sometimes quite surprising how high the reading can be... we got this before last Christmas, when our youngest had just got his full licence, and have been encouraging him to use it before getting in the car the day after a night out. Must check the re-calibration information that is included, however.

Reliable, easy to use

by Ian J on 18/11/2013

This breathalyser is easy to use and I have found it accurate when I have tested it in circumstances when I know I would have been over the limit and against one off breath test devices. My only reason for not giving 5 stars is that the accompanying instructions tell you to do a cumbersome sensor clean - I contacted Alcosense and they agreed that all you need to do is take the batteries out and the sensor clean is done automatically

Worth every penny, gives great peace of mind.

by sue s on 18/11/2013

I have to leave for work extremely early and usually use it in the morning if I have had a couple of drinks the night before to give me peace of mind when I drive off. We live in Spain & in my area the police are frequently stopping early drivers, the limit is lower than in the UK so I factor that in and have found it very useful.

This is a great device for checking your alcohol level, and an eye opener as to how little you can drink to set off the alarm. My husband's work has an extremely low tolerance for alcohol and regularly carries out random checks. This gadget is reliable enough to indicate what his level is in the morning. The AlcoSense Lite is educational too.

I work with the police and checked this against one of theirs.

A MUST HAVE!

by Ben on 12/11/2013

Firstly, I have to say I was very impressed with the service provided by GADGETS4TRAVEL. The delivery time was prompt, and the after sales contact was a different class. In terms of the product itself, it really is a must have for people who think "a couple should be ok to drive" , "its 10 am the morning after and so I should be fine". This device provides important answers to these issues, accurately and reliably. It is no coincidence that it won the WHATCAR? award for best breathaliser under £40.00.The product set-up couldn't be easier, its all put together in the packaging. You just insert the tube and turn it on, and it can give you a reading within seconds.Thank you again - and I hope to deal further with GADGETS4TRAVEL in the future.

by Sally on 07/01/2013

my husband got pulled over at 9.15am the other Sunday to do a breath test. He had already done one indoors which read 0.30,0.80 being over the limit. I expected the Police test to show a low alcohol reading but it came back clear. So, while it is not accurate it is the right way! It was also quite an eye opener when we tested ourselves after a night of drinking.The highest reading we have had was 1.50, nearly twice the legal limited to drive but worringly that was one morning and my husband didn't blow clear till 11.30am! Great gadget, everyone should have one.
