AlcoSense Elite 2 Breathalyzer (Multi Alert Level)

Product Review (submitted on 15 September 2014):
Overall I like this product a lot. It is small, seems well made, and is easy to use and understand once calibrated. I agree with some other reviewers that the setup process is a bit fiddly but provided you follow the instructions it is quite straightforward. On top of that, the fact that the unit can be calibrated and needs to be from time to time gives me more confidence that it will give an accurate reading. Whether that is logical I'm not sure.I bought mine in July 2014 and in the two months I have had it it seems to be quite consistent in the readings it gives relative to the number of drinks I have had. You must of course be careful to wait at least 20 minutes after having a drink for the reading will be meaningless. I have found it interesting to periodically retest myself and watch the reading slowly decline over a number of hours as I metabolise the alcohol.A friend of mine was impressed with it and I ordered a second unit for him (only because I have Amazon prime and got quicker delivery). Unfortunately I did not think to check the readings of the two units against each other which would have been interesting. Sadly he has taken the unit to Thailand with him and wont be back until the spring. Some people get all the luck!Don't buy the expensive replacement blow tubes. Some plastic drinks straws are exactly the same diameter and cost nothing.Overall I would definitely recommend.
