AlcoHawk Precision Digital Alcohol Breath Tester - What People Are Saying

AlcoHawk Precision Digital Alcohol Breath TesterThe AlcoHawk Precision is one of the big sellers at Amazon.com, according to its list of Bestsellers in Alcohol Tests. It has also attracted some customer reviews. Here is what some people are saying:

* I tested this unit at home both in the morning after no alcohol to prove it showed nothing and then at night after having 2 glasses of wine and it worked great! It is easy to use. I did have to replace the batteries it came with with new ones which is to be expected with any electronic purchase that comes with batteries. They always come with cheap batteries. I would recommend this unit. I bought it to keep at home for when my teenager comes home. In case I need to prove/disprove alcohol usage.

* Tremendously accurate, It's amazing how quickly you reach the legal limit that prohibits you from driving. Basically a few drinks and you are illegal and don't even feel like you've been drinkling. Great product.

* This is a great product - it actually is kind of fun. I thought of getting it because our friend has one that he passes around at parties. It's neat for people to see how high their blood alcohol content is, and if it's about what they expect it to be.

My only complaint is that this product is not meant to be used often. The second time we "played" with it (at home), the readings seemed to be off. I then read in the product information that if you use the product frequently, it may need to be recalibrated every month or so. Recalibration involves mailing it off and paying $20.

Now that we know that, we'll keep it in our pocket and use it when we truly have concerns - not passing it around for everyone to use. But I love that they sell these for the public to use, and it truly is an important safety tool for modern times.

* Nearly two years of ownership and it has been a great purchase. I have no shame dorking up my drinking. Use to ensure legal driving or for ill advised contests. Also determine what at what BAC memory gets spotty (what point is there exceeding that?). Fun to call out big talkers who don't suspect you are packing a lie detector of sorts. Also useful to get people off your back who think you are too drunk to drive.

Pros
Precision to third decimal place. rare at this price at time of my purchase

Very repeatable with consistant deep breath

Small enough to take to bars in jacket pocket or cargo pockets. Light for its size.

Cons
Innaccurate if sips have been taken within 10 minutes or so. True for all breathalyzers. Drunk idiots have tough time getting it through their heads

Warm up/calibration time ~45 sec. Another let down at parties but perhaps key to accuracy

Would be nice if it was more pocket sized

Chirps at you alarm clock style if above .08 "I know I'm drunk, shut up!"
