The BACtrack pocket breathalyzer helps prevent drunken disasters

Know your limits in the most accurate way possible.

Everyone likes to blow off steam with a good night out every now and then. But even after mild partying with friends, you might be over the limit and not even know it when it comes time to head home.

It’s always a better bet to call a friend or hit up Uber, but knowing your blood alcohol level can be helpful in preventing over-imbibing before it even sneaks up on you. The BACtrack Trace Pro breathalyzer puts a law enforcement-grade sensor in your pocket.

Simply put, the device takes guesswork out of the equation, since judgment calls and alcohol don’t mix so well.

The breathalyzer measures just over four inches long, and weighs three ounces. The sensor inside is the same as used by police, hospitals, and clinics. After breathing into the device’s mouthpiece, you get a rapid estimate of your BAC (blood alcohol content) on the built-in LCD display. The one-touch operation is ideal when your hand-eye coordination is far from perfect.

The breathalyzer lasts for about 1,500 tests on two AA batteries. You get six mouthpieces to keep buddies safer too. The BACtrack also saves your last ten readings.

Usually priced at $130, you can currently pick up the BACtrack Trace Pro for $79.99. The deal includes free shipping to the U.S. and Canada, and takes 38 percent off MSRP. Order now to ensure your nights on the town are safer.
