The AlcoMate Revo is a pint-sized breathalyzer that quickly and accurately measures your blood alcohol content at the push of a button followed by a quick blow into the included mouthpiece. This device is as easy to use as it gets. Simply push the power button, wait for the instruction and blow into the mouthpiece. The device sounds a beep while you blow before making a click noise once the test is complete.

The Revo isn't the only compact breathalyzer out there, but what marks it out from the competition is the fact that it doesn't need to be calibrated every few months as is the case with other products. Rather, it comes with easily replaceable sensor cartridges, meaning you can have peace of mind knowing you always have an accurate breathalyzer on the ready for when you might need it.

This breathalyzer is unerringly accurate; for example if I were to down four pints of beer today and check my blood alcohol content before repeating the same exercise tomorrow while keeping all other variables the same, you can bet the Revo will provide the exact same reading.

Ultimately, the AlcoMate Revo does exactly what it sets out to do -- it's a quick, portable and easy-to-use breathalyzer with no needless bells and whistles. The fact that it doesn't need to be calibrated ensures you always have it on hand -- what good with a breathalyzer be if this wasn't the case?
