What I saw says to by the cheaper meters not the expensive ones. The expensive ones have fuel cell sensors that ignore the acetone. Make sure it has a semiconductor sensor. Thats the limit of my one evening on a couple of You Tube videos expertise.

The other 'cheap breathalyser' came in today.

Unfortunately, I am not in ketosis at the moment because I lost a staring contest with a bag of potato chips. He was All Dressed up and waiting to pick a fight with me. I didn't stand a chance.

Anyway, check out the pics below. I took a swig of crown royal so that they would have something to report.

PS I'm going to start counting every gram of carbs on my phone app, and I'll see if I can be in ketosis in the next few days. Maybe I'll start a thread on how to do this. I have a few ideas about it that I don't see mentioned very often.

@NSDad126
Yes, start a thread about your ketosis journey. Should be good reading and helpful for others, as well.

I believe his cousin lives at my house.

just a quick update

i got a readong of 0.02 on both meters tonight.

the meter with red backlight ( just reference the pics) is consistently providing readings of 0.02

the meter with the blue backlight. gave me 1 reading of 0.02 with multiple readings of zero before and after the 0.02 reading.

at this point i haven't recognized any secret to getting a reading. i've been testing at the end of my breath like the video but i'm not getting repeatable results.

I should receive mine this week. It'll be interesting to see what it reads - if I'm in ketosis, that is.

Be interesting to see how it compares to your Ketonix, VeeJay. I'm only getting 3 yellow blinks right now on mine.
