AL6000 Breathalyzer UK Review

The AL6000 Breathalyzer has now been available in the UK for almost 10 years. As it is one of the most popular digital breathalyzers in the UK we decided to review it first.

What we like about the AL6000

  • Great design, smart professional looking digital breathalyzer
  • Ergonomic design, fits in your hand comfortably
  • Reliable & robust in every day use
  • Comes supplied with batteries
  • Suppled with 5 professional breathalyzer mouthpieces which can be re-used, if it has just been purchased for personal use.
  • The latest models of Al6000 give the buyer the ability to change the sensor every 300 tests, fitting a new pre-calibrated sensor, set by the manufacturer for accuracy.
  • Easy to change sensor-simply pull out old one, push new one in (no screwdriver or technical expertise required)
  • The AL6000 breathalyzer does not have to be sent away for service.
  • Replacement batteries easily available-takes 2AA batteries
  • Replacement sensors for AL6000 are inexpensive & widely available for around £17-20 pounds
  • The Al6000 breathalyzer is able to give accuracy of +/_ 0.1%BAC at 1.0%BAC, this means that a test result of 0.10%BAC should not vary by more than 0.09% to 1.1%BAC in a close series of sucessive tests.
  • The semiconductor sensor is tough and resists clogging and corrosion as well as any of the other breathalyzers of a similar price.
  • With careful use you should expect around 300 accurate tests from each sensor, but this is dependent on careful useage and storage and to a degree, the levels of alcohol measured.
  • Replacement mouthpieces widely available and inexpensive.
  • The AL6000 breathalyzer offers excellent value for money at around £58

Things to take into consideration if purchasing an AL6000 breathalyzer or a replacement sensor

  • Smokers should expect shorter sensor life as tar and CO do not mix well with alcohol sensors.
  • Be sure to ventilate the breathalyzer well after use as condensation can cause the sensor to rust and fail if it is packed away immediately after use.
  • When purchasing al Al6000 breathalyzer it is important to buy a unit with the correct display option, as this cannot be changed later and is fixed at manufacture. Modern models have the decimel place spray painted on the front screen of the LCD display which is read if the display is to be read in %BAC (percentage blood alcohol concentration)
  • At this point it may be helpful to point out that the majority of modern breathalyzers display blood alcohol level readings, confusing when you are blowing breath through them, but as nearly all legislation is now quoted in BAC, the units are set to do the conversion calculation for you. Ignor the decimel place and just read from the first positive digit and the breathalyzer displays BAC in mg/100ml, so for example you can interpret the same result as .080%BAC and/or 080=80mg/100ml BAC
  • The AL6000 breathalyzer has 2 modes of testing Nor = normal and Fst = fast  the fast mode is what it says and the breath sample and accuracy are reduced for a fast test.
  • In reality most users of AL6000 breathalyzers nearly always test in normal mode as this significantly increases the accuracy of the result.
  • Normal mode takes a 5 second deep breath lung sample and will indicate with a Flo display if the breath sample is not maintained for the full sample time.
  • When buying a new sensor for an Al6000 be sure to match the colour circuit board to the one your breathalyzer has as they are not interchangeable. Most have red circuit boards, but older models are green and they cannot be mixed. If the wrong sensor is inserted the breathalyser will not work and the sensor is not usable once it has been connected to the breathalyser.
  • New sensors will have a test count of 6-12 tests needed for their calibration.
  • One last point the unit used to have NF certification, but this was not renewed by the manufacturer Sentech and had lapsed. Now with the new French breathalyser law the manufacturer has re-applied for the French NF certificate which should be issued for the breathalyser before the July 2012 French law starts, so this breathalyzer is a good bet for anyone looking for a digital breathalyzer to take to Europe.

Our Opinion : All in all the AL6000 breathalyser offers excellent value for money and is a great buy for anyone considering buying a digital breathalyzer.

European Drink Driving Limts | French Breathalyzer Limits

The drink driving limits across europe vary from country to country with most being lower than here in the UK. British drivers travelling abroad should be aware of this as the UK limit at 0.08% BAC ( 80mg /100ml or 0.8 g/l ) is significantly higher than most of our European neighbours, and it would be very easy to find yourself unknowingly breaking the law when abroad.

Our closest neighbours France, Belgium & Ireland have levels of 0.05% BAC.  Ireland’s limits changed from 0.08% BAC to 0.05% BAC last Autumn 2011, as research from other European countries has shown significant reduction in road trafiic accidents in which alcohol was a factor following a reduced limit. Ireland has also introduced a zero tolerance for learner drivers. Recently France has become much more pro-active, and has introduced a law requireing drivers to carry self breathalyzer kits which will come into effect on 1st July 2012.

Some countries, Estonia, Hungary, Slovakia, in fact operate a zero tolerance to drink driving for all drivers. The levels are constantly being changed across Europe, and the trend is downward. If you are driving abroad it is important to check the current levels for the county that you are visiting at the time you are visiting, and to exercise extreme caution as the penalties also vary from country to country.

The safest thing is to abstain completely from drinking alcohol when driving, however many drivers are unaware that they may still be over the limit the morning after consuming alcohol, and this is more likely to be the case in countries where the limts are lower.

In some countries novice drivers (less than 2-3 years since they passed their driving test) are set lower limits than more experienced drivers.
Most breathalyzer kits and digital breathalysers sold in UK display in % BAC

So this means that:
0.2 g/l is same as 0.02 %BAC
0.5 g/l is same as 0.05 %BAC
0.8 g/l is same as 0.08 %BAC

The limts are changing constantly so check the details for the country that you are visiting at the time you are visiting.

Breathalyzer Limits UK | What are the current UK Drink Driving Legal Limits ?

  This is a common question and one that can cause a lot of confusion as different models of breathalyzer can display different units of measure. Valuebreathalysers commonly receive questions regarding this, and today was no exception.

Alcohol Breathalyzer Limits UK

Here are the current UK alcohol breathalyzer limits for drivers on a normal driving license, that you may often see quoted-they all refer to the same amount of alcohol in the blood stream it is just the unit of measure that is different. The different ways that this is displayed can cause confusion.

The most common measurement is the BAC or blood alcohol concentration. Some models of breathalyzer display in BRAC or breath alcohol concentration but this is far less common now.

Blood Alcohol Concentrations (BAC) – 80 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres, 80mg/ml, 080 on mg/100ml display or 0.08 %BAC, 0.8 Promille

Breath Alcohol Concentrations (BrAC) – 35 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath

If you are purchasing a breathalyzer it is important to know the unit of measure that that the breathalyzer diplays in so that you interpret the readings correctly.

To find out more about UK breathalyzer limits and limits for other EU countries including France visit

The UK’s limits are much higher than most other EU countries and there are many who believe that they should be brought down to a lower level for example 0.05%, which is the limit in most EU countries. for a driver on a normal driving license. Some countries operate even lower limts of 0.02 % BAC or even 0. I think it will only be a matter of time before the UK follows suit, and come into line with most of Europe with a 0.05% limit. Most drivers are impaired by even small amounts of alcohol in their blood stream and the effect does vary considerably from driver to driver. Generally the higher the levels of alcohol , the greater the impairment.
