It is not easy to find independent reviews of this product. The Gearlog gadget guide, testing seven breathalyzers, used the FC10 as the standard against which to measure them. It wrote:

The big Kahuna: the Lifeloc FC10 digital breathalyzer, which is used by law enforcement. If you've ever been pulled over for drunk driving, you're probably familiar with the FC10. It's very easy to use: you just turn it on, look for the "wait" to disappear from the LCD screen (which is only about 10 secs), and blow. It gives you a response in under 10 seconds, and in about 20 seconds, it's ready for use again. It can detect blood alcohol levels between 0.000 to 0.600 (which we hope no one ever has to see the latter number, because that's like death). It uses 4-AA batteries. We used the FC10 as the standard to go by.
