We get it, you like to have a good time. So do we, but we also want to make sure you get home in one piece (we’re protective like that). That’s why we’ve found three different ways for you to check your BAC before you leave the bar to get into you car. One is self-contained and two work with your phone, but each is a great tool for keeping you and your friends from turning a night of fun into a nightmare.

DrinkMate Breathalyzer – 20% off

Built for discretion at less than 2 inches long, this breathalyzer hooks right onto your keyring without filling up your pocket. Just breathe into the end for a few seconds, and the connected smartphone app will tell you your BAC within +/- 0.01%, maxing out at 0.20% (good luck even picking up your phone at that point). The custom semiconductor-based sensor is powered by the lightning port on your iPhone, so there’s no batteries or other extras required.

Pick up a DrinkMate Breathalyzer for $31.99.
