How to find the right personal breathalyzer for your family
Driving while under the influence of alcohol is a major cause of road accidents. For one, a DUI on your record is costly and you can lose your career and income. Multiple offenses will result in having your driver's license revoked--which is sure to impact your work and social lives. The other option would be to buy a personal breathalyzer and use it to find out if taking a cab back home would be the wiser option.
Personal breathalyzers are compact, and convenient to use. But the accuracy of the test may vary, depending on the technology used. There are two main breathalyzers types:
Fuel Cell: Fuel cell sensor are more accurate and provide more consistent BAC results even with consecutive tests. They are also alcohol specific and have a much longer lifespan than semiconductor breathalyzers. However, they are more costly to produce.
