Pros: none
Cons: accuracy
" I brought this to ensure i was safe to drive the morning after. Its hard to tell its accuracy and tbh i do not trust it. I felt pretty over the limit the next day and blew into this. It came back as 'low' safe to drive, i knew i was over and would not have risked driving. Going to court with this as a defense wouldnt help! "

" I bought this pocket breathalyser for my 18 year old son, primarily to use the 'morning after' to ensure safest driving. It's very easy to use, and give a clear straightforward reading.
Not expensive, and I would definitely recommend.
