Safe-Way Single Use Alcohol Detector
Safe-Way Single Use Breathalyzer uses a chemical reaction that will activate crystals inside the tester to only change color when a certain amount of alcohol is blown through the tester. Safe-Way breathalyzers are one of the most popular choices of breathalyzers for schools, office functions, trade show promotion, and the military. They promote safety by providing the tools necessary to test individuals for alcohol quickly. Users just blow through the tube, wait 1-2 minutes, and if there is a color change, then the threshold amount alcohol is present. Safe-Way can test for .02% for zero-tolerance situations, .04%, .05%, and .08% for legal limit testing.
Buying a breathalyzer for home use or on the road is becoming a valuable resource in giving yourself the best chance to monitor your intoxication level and the level of those around you. Consumer level breathalyzers have come a long way, and many of them employ many of the same features you see on professional level breathalyzers. What you want to avoid is novelty grade breathalyzers that wrap around a keychain or don't give a digital readout of your BAC%. Here are our recommendations for personal use breathalyzers.
