Another manufacturer is Dragër-also used by Police forces.
Both are obviously,very accurate,but the latter has a longer time between re-calibration.
I believe that both companies sell to the public,so check out their sites.
I have no knowledge of cheap devices advertised on the Internet.
Cheers. I'm very lazy when it comes to calibration so the LION unit would probably be overkill. I don't go out drinking that much anymore

Will check the Drag unit you mention - ta for the pointer.
