Public-use, compact models widen breathalyzer selections

The latest products are coin- or paper bill-operated and installed in restaurants and bars. Portable units support Bluetooth and come with Android- or iOS-based software.


  • Public-use models: Makers are rolling out money-operated products that can be installed in commercial establishments. Traditional variants accept coins, although newer units have slots for paper bills. Designed for mounting on the wall or floor or set on the tabletop, these feature 7 or 12in LCDs that play video advertisements as well.
  • Compact designs: Suppliers are introducing pen-shaped portable fuel cell types measuring only 139x30x21mm. For the semiconductor variety, there are mini versions without operation buttons. These come with an LCD and are installed on iPhones.
  • Bluetooth units on the rise: More China-made breathalyzers support transmission of data via Bluetooth. These come installed with Android- or iOS-based software and can be operated by smartphones or tablet PCs. Results can be stored on these devices, sent via SMS or posted on social networking sites.
  • Value added: A number of units double as an ignition interlock device. Installed on the dashboard, this prevents the engine from being turned on if the user exceeds the acceptable blood alcohol concentration levels.
