Alcosense Single Use NF Breathalyser Twin Pack is rated out of 5 by 91.Rated 2 out of 5 by Expat50 from I hope I never use it Compulsory to carry one in the car in France. Bought for no other reason. Will chuck it out when it reaches its use-by date.Date published: 2018-05-15Rated 1 out of 5 by RealPembo from It's set to non-UK limit I didn't find this as helpful as I hoped and that quite simply because it only detects if you're above the French limits for drinking and driving, which are considerably lower than the UK limits. I wanted it because I wanted to confirm when the alcohol in system had reduced sufficiently to mean I was ok to drive -and so not stay my journey until then. Although there are rules of thumb, they are very imprecise and unreliable, so I wanted to gain some certainty. Because of the lower limit tested for (UK is 0.8, France is 0.5), I suspect that I ended up waiting quite a lot longer than I needed to. Because it's a straight pass or fail, there's no way of being sure, which mostly defeats the object. Ok, I accept that it's erring on the side of safety, which I'd obviously better than the opposite, but I really think it would be good if Halfords offered one that reflects the UK limits given that these are being sold in UK stores. Also, as these are one-use and only two in a pack, if you still haven't passed by the time you use the serving, there's no way of knowing when you do in fact fall below three limit. They work out quite recurrence on that basis. I have since purchased an electronic unit that I can re-use as much as I wish, and which gives a digital read our of the actual level measured, which means it's suitable for any country printing you look up what the limit in that country is. So I'm able to keep free-testing untill I know I am bellow the 0.8. If I do wish a margin for error/safety, I can choose that myself rather than have that forced on me because the tester is aimed at a different country. The electronic until was only only just over twice the price of this, so already given me pay back as against the cost of these in just a couple of weeks, plus, with interchangeable mouthpieces, it can be used by multiple people. I would definitely advise not buying these if you can possibly help it unless you just need something too urgently to get an alternative, and accept that it will at least err on the side of caution.Date published: 2018-04-07Rated 4 out of 5 by G407 from Not suitable for new drivers These measure to 0.05% but new drivers (less than 3 years) now have to be within 0.02% in France.

They are only ones that comply with french NF standards other than a digital one which cost well over £100Date published: 2017-04-11Rated 5 out of 5 by Florida2017 from Just to show! This product is easy to use and brought to prove a point to my daughter who said she would be ok to drive at 4pm when she had been out until 4am. Guess mum was right after all. Needless to say I dropped her off!Date published: 2017-04-08
