AlcoSense Pro Fuel Cell Breathalyzer

Product Review (submitted on 17 July 2017):
I delayed my review so I could thoroughly test this breathalyser.Firstly, do not buy cheap breathalysers unless you are just using them for fun, they are worse than not using them at all - the last thing you need is to be lulled into a false sense of security!I had the opportunity to test the Alcosense Pro against other MUCH more expensive evidence equipment and the results were impressive. Within reason, I would trust this unit to give me accurate readings if used correctly - remembering to wait a while after brushing your teeth (oops!) or using mouthwash etc but most things to avoid are common sense.My only gripe is that you have to buy the next model up (at an extra £100) to be able to download the readings to a computer. You can update the software using a supplied USB cable although a required driver is not digitally signed so my computer refuses to install it.Other reviewers have complained that it requires calibration each year but this is not expensive and keeps the thing accurate. I suspect the complainers don't give their cars a service either... ????That said, I am totally satisfied with this breathalyser and would recommend it to anyone. It is a well designed unit, easy to use and solidly made although I thought it prudent to get a carry-case for it. Even better; designed and made in the UK, good to see home grown innovation alive and well. Keep it up people!
