GURNEE, Ill., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- How many drinks can you consume before you reach the legal limit? The wrong decision could cost you jail time, loss of work or even your life.
One of the fastest growing industries in health and empowerment is the personal breathalyzer. Sales have steadily increased over the years. According to Wintergreen Research, sales of breathalyzers hit $284.6 million in 2011, and they forecast that number will climb to $3.2 billion by 2018 as prices fall and accuracy improves1. But do they work?
Ranging in price from $3 to $300, the right model can deliver a high level of accuracy. However, the wrong model is useless and a waste of money and time.
Introducing "Cash for Clunkers!" No, we aren't talking cars; we're talking personal breathalyzers. The holidays were filled with displays of inexpensive breathalyzers for consumers to purchase for loved ones. Many of these inexpensive models are not cleared by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and were most likely calibrated months ago in a foreign country, and already they are probably not working. In other words --- it's a "clunker."
Quest Products, Inc. has launched "Cash for Clunkers," an opportunity for customers to trade in their used breathalyzer and upgrade to the latest technology. Quest Products, Inc. will accept any and all breathalyzer models from any manufacturer and retailer whether the unit is working or not. Simply contact customer service and they will buy it back from you by offering a trade-in allowance of $20 towards the purchase of a new, working AlcoHAWK® Breathalyzer.
