We provide calibration for all breathalyzers at a fee of $100 and takes approximately 1 week from the date we receive the item. Optional calibration certificate is available for $50. If you would like to have your Lifeloc breathalyzer calibrated please send us an email at contact@sgbreathalyzers.com. We recommend calibration every 6 months for regular use and 1 year for occasional use. It is important that the breathalyzers are used according to the guidelines within the manual, the next section of the FAQ talks about the guidelines of proper use.

In general, a fuel cell breathalyzer lasts 500-1000 or 1 year while a semiconductor breathlyzer lasts 300-500 or 6 months before a calibration is needed. If you own a DA5000, DA7000, AL7000 or a AL6000, they have a replaceable sensor feature and the replaceable sensors can be purchased here.

Guidelines to prolong the life of a breathalyzer:
– Cigarette smoke particles may destroy the sensor. Wait 20 minutes after smoking before using the breathalyzer.

– Food particles and saliva have the same effect as cigarette smoke particles on the sensor.

– Always use fresh batteries. Whenever possible, use a car adapter for the AL7000.

-Breath normally before blowing into the breathalyzer. Many people tend to take a deep breath prior to blowing into the breathalyzer. This will dilute the alcohol concentration. – Breath in slowly through your nose, not your mouth.

– Inhale until about 70% and hold your breath for 2 seconds.

– Exhale gradually to make sure you have enough air to last for 5 seconds. Many people blow hard into the breathalyzer and run out of breath after 2 seconds, this leads to inaccuracy as most breathalyzers require a sampling time of 4 seconds.
