The AlcoDigital AL6000 breathalyzer is our long standing bestseller in our range of personal digital breathalysers.
The AL6000 features a unique replaceable semi-conductor sensor, which you can replace yourself – just like a battery. Just order the swap & go replaceable sensor from us and replace the sensor every 12 months or 200 tests (whichever comes first). Other breathalysers require a regular calibration at our workshop but with a swap & go breathalyser, no calibration = no days without your breathalyzer. At under £70, the AL6000 is the cheapest breathalyser in our Swap & Go range and provides excellent value for money.
The AL6000 reads in milligrams per litre (mg/L) of breath and provides measurements up to 2.00mg/L. The English and Welsh drink drive limit is 0.35mg/L and the Scottish drink drive limit is 0.22 mg/L.
Because of its ergonomically designed body and soft rubber grip, it is easy to hold and use. We also include a soft storage pouch for protection when carrying the breathalyser.
UK based 12 month warranty.
Easy to use
It’s very easy to provide a breath sample. Turn the breathalyser on by holding the on/off button momentarily; the breathalyzer will count down while it warms the sensor to the correct working point.
While the breathalyser is counting down, apply the narrow end of the mouthpiece into the opening on the breathalyser. Then simply blow into the breathalyser with a continuous flow, the breathalyser will sound a long beep while you do so. When you hear 2 small beeps then you have provided enough breath and the breathalyser will show your results on the screen.
You can use this result to determine whether or not you are over the legal drink drive limit or not, however the only safe level to drive at is ZERO.
Swap & Go Semi Conductor Sensor
Alcohol in your breath produces an electrical charge on the sensor which is converted into the mg/L reading on the breathalyser screen. The AL6000 uses a semi-conductor sensor that does this, a sensor that is easily replaced by yourself. Replacing the sensor every 12 months or 200 tests will give you the confidence to know that the breathalyser accuracy is equally as good year after year. This is similar to getting a calibration but without having to send the breathalyser in to us.
To get the most accurate reading, you must wait at least 20 minutes after consuming any alcohol, food or smoking to conduct a breathalyser test. This will also help with the longevity of the unit.

The AL6000 breathalyzer comes with 5 mouthpieces. Without a mouthpiece you won’t always be able to provide a steady flow into the breathalyzer; mouthpieces help direct the breath content over the sensor to produce a more accurate and consistent result. The AL6000 also has an exhaust where any excess breath supplied can escape to help with the accuracy of the reading from your breath sample.
LED and Audible Warnings
The AL6000 range is unique in that it also provides an LED and audible warning. Below the screen where your reading is produced is a warning light that will show green, amber or red depending on your test result.
