What Car AlcoSense Lite Review


AlcoSense Lite may be our entry level product but the design certainly doesn’t cut any corners. It may not have all of the technology of the Elite but for the occasional user looking for an indication of their level of intoxication the AlcoSense Lite will more than fit the bill.

Easy to Use

Like it’s bigger brother, the AlcoSense Lite has been designed to be as easy as possible to use. To do a breath test all you need to do is turn the unit on, wait for it to count down to zero and then blow until it beeps while holding the Blow key down. Easy!

Scotland, England or both?

On 5th December 2014 Scotland lowered its drink drive limit from 0.8‰BAC (80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood) to 0.5‰BAC (50mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood), England and Wales stay at 0.8‰BAC. AlcoSense reads across both limits so you can use the Scottish or English version of the product in either territory. The Scottish version displays a ‘Don’t Drive’ alert from 0.3‰BAC upward and the English/Welsh version from 0.6‰BAC upwards.

Easy to Understand Results

AlcoSense™ Lite shows your level of intoxication in ‰ BAC (percent of blood alcohol content) and shows your reading in increments of 0.1 (If you require a more detailed readout or in mg/l please see the AlcoSense Elite). The AlcoSense Lite even alerts you when you are close to or over the drink drive limit. Please see the screen shots below.

Sleek Design

Pocket sized, it can discretely be kept anywhere. AlcoSense™ Lite measures only 105mm (height) x 45mm (width) x 25mm (depth). It is powered by 3 x AAA batteries meaning that you can use it anywhere at any time.

Easy Cleaning & Maintenance

The AlcoSense Lite has an ASC feature, manually selected by the user, which is a deep clean of the sensor and should be undertaken periodically to remove containment like residual alcohol and oxidisation from the sensor. If you intend to use your system regularly we would suggest considering the AlcoSense Elite which automatically self cleans after every blow test.

Use it Again & Again

Using the latest sensor technology and innovations AlcoSense™ Lite can be used again and again meaning that it is a secure investment. We recommend waiting at least a minute between blow tests to allow any residual alcohol left in the blow chamber to evaporate, ensuring an accurate reading. If you wish to do multiple tests, one straight after the other, we recommend considering the AlcoSense Elite for its sensor clean and purge feature.

Alcosense Lite Design


Every AlcoSense unit is tested for accuracy three times before leaving our factory. As a result our quality control is arguably the best in the industry meaning that you can have 100% faith in our products. AlcoSense Lite has industry leading accuracy of +/-0.2‰BAC which is unique in this price range. If greater accuracy is required please see the AlcoSense Elite.

Why Delay?

Part of the responsible enjoyment of alcohol is to understand its effect on the body and to understand when you are safe to drive, AlcoSense™ helps people do exactly that and takes out the potentially fatal guess work the morning after. Don’t leave it to chance, order yours today.
