Police Grade Keychain Breathalyzer Amazon Deal Could Help You Know When To Say When

The holiday season is quickly approaching which means many people will be indulging more than usual. If a tall glass of something strong is in your future, you may want to invest in a breathalyzer. The BACtrack C6 Keychain Breathalyzer is currently on sale on Amazon for $64.

The BACtrack C6 works like your run-of-the-mill breathalyzer, but is only 2 ounces (57 grams) and 22.2 inches (5.59 centimeters) in length. It maintains that it is the “smallest police-grade alcohol tester ever created”. The device uses a “BluFire Fuel Cell Sensor” to determine a user’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC). The user can receive their results on the device’s OLED screen or the BACtrack app via Bluetooth. The BACtrack C6 will also estimate when a user’s BAC will be back to 0.00%. If you need to get somewhere before your alcohol levels are down, you can call an Uber directly from the BACtrack app, which is a nice touch.

The biggest question, of course, is whether the device is accurate. The BACtrack C6 claims to use the same “police-grade technology” that is used by hospitals and law enforcement. Most of the reviewers seemed to be pleased with the accuracy of the device-- 74% of reviewers gave the product 5 stars. A handful of reviewers argued that the device gave different readings between 20-30 second intervals, but this could potentially be attributed to a number of factors. The biggest downside to the BACtrack C6 is that it is not rechargeable and requires a AAA battery.

Many other Amazon deals will also be available this holiday season. Amazon has not yet released information about its Black Friday deals, but there are currently a number of deeply discounted products available. For example, the Fire HD 10 tablet with Alexa Hands-Free is $99 ($50 off) and the second generation Echo Show is $179.99 ($50 off). Amazon also recently offered free shipping with no minimum purchase to anyone in the United States.

Even though the BACtrack C6 Keychain Breathalyzer is a neat device, which you can purchase direct from Amazon right here, please never drink and drive. It is illegal to drive a vehicle in the United States if your BAC is 0.08% or higher. Stay safe!
