Win an AlcoSense Excel personal breathalyser

Whether it’s driving to work following a party the night before, doing the school run after a bottle of wine with your partner or drinks with friends the previous evening, unintentional drink driving the morning after is easier than you might think.  But now this should be a thing of the past with a personal breathalyser, called the AlcoSense Excel.  

The AlcoSense Excel is the first breathalyser under £100 to use a smaller version (64mm2) of exactly the same sensor used in several UK Police-approved breathalysers (200mm2), bringing a new level of accuracy and reliability for drivers at this price.  

In addition to giving detailed readings to two decimal places in either blood or breath  alcohol concentrations, the AlcoSense Excel will alert you when you are close to or over your set limit. Indeed it will work with any limit worldwide and can be changed between limits simply and easily - ideal if you drive abroad on holiday or between Scotland and England, for example, where different limits apply. 

It is also the first breathalyser at this price to feature a full colour screen and on-screen prompts and tips, making it exceptionally easy to use.

"But it’s not just about being under or over the limitStudies show that if you drive while having only one-eighth of the English drink drive limit in your system (one fifth of the Scottish limit), you are 37% more likely to be involved in a fatal accident than when sober*,” said Hunter Abbott, MD of AlcoSense.  "The only way to tell when you’re safe to drive the morning after the night before is either to abstain completely from drinking alcohol or to use an accurate personal breathalyser. The AlcoSense Excel gives detailed readings all the way up through the range so you can tell exactly when you are clear”.

All breathalysers (including Police devices) require periodic re-calibration.  The AlcoSense Excel is the first breathalyser, at this price, to feature re-calibration alerts and overload protection.  A re-calibration alert tells you after twelve months that re-calibration is required to ensure your product always remains accurate.  In the rare event that alcohol is blown directly into the sensor by accident, overload protection stops the sensor from overloading and maintains the Excel’s accuracy for future readings.  Additional improved accuracy comes in the form of temperature compensation on the device – ideal for the British climate whether it’s below freezing or in the middle of a summer heatwave!

The AlcoSense Excel is priced £99.99 online at alcosense.co.uk and in-store and online at halfords.com.  More info from alcosense.co.uk
