The AL6000 Breathalyzer
has now been available for almost 10 years. As it is one of the most popular digital breathalyzers in the UK we decided to review it. This review was written and published on the blog http://drugs-and-alcohol.co.uk.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
