Well worth it. Extreme value and reliability
Have had it for over a year. And it has saved me from driving quite a few times when I felt sober enough. I also work in mining and have to blow zero every day. My little breatho has saved my job more than once too.

The best breathalyser I've owned yet.
This is next level making even my S80 look like a toy in comparison, I've never seen such repeatable accuracy, these are awesome, so much so after extensive testing at home I've bought an optional 5yr calibration plan to keep it spot on, I couldn't recommend these more highly to anyone who is actually serious about BAC% testing
