Revealed: 2024’s Best Value Digital Breathalyser for Personal Use

The AL6000 has been heralded as 2024’s best value digital breathalyser as a gift or for personal use.

In good news for consumers, the price of breathalysers has reduced considerably over the past few years, making these valuable personal devices much more affordable for personal use or as a heartfelt gift to keep a loved one safe.

With many breathalysers on the market offering impressive value for money, the AL6000 is still thought of as the top choice in this niche market.  Consistently outselling its competitors, the AL6000 used to have a retail price between £100 and £120 but prices have reduced considerably over the past few years, making the AL6000 more affordable now than ever before.

A robust and reliable breathalyser, the AL6000 is as popular for corporate use as it is for personal use.  Doing away with the need to send the breathalyser off for recalibration every year, the AL6000 is fitted with a semiconducting sensor that can be purchased online and easily changed out for optimal accuracy every 12 months or after 200 uses.

A quick alcohol screening solution, the AL6000 has become popular for business and clinic use, for example by clubs and pubs who wish to screen customers before entrance to ensure they are not already under the influence of alcohol.  With mouthpieces able to be purchased in bulk, a new mouthpiece can be used for each person and then disposed of, ensuring the health and safety of everyone.

Additional Information on Breathalysers

Breathalysers have become an indispensable tool for both personal use and professional applications. As awareness around responsible alcohol consumption increases, quality breathalysers like the AL6000 provide an affordable and convenient way to measure blood alcohol content.

The AL6000 stands out for its ease of use, accuracy, and long battery life. It utilizes advanced semiconductor sensor technology to precisely analyze breath alcohol levels without the need for frequent recalibration. This makes it simple to maintain compared to traditional fuel cell-based devices.

Using the Device

Operating the AL6000 is straightforward. Simply turn it on, wait for it to initialize, insert a new mouthpiece, and blow steadily for 5 seconds. The large LCD display clearly shows BAC readings from 0.00% to 0.40%.

After a test, the single-use mouthpiece can be discarded to maintain hygiene. Replacement mouthpieces are inexpensive when purchased in bulk.


  • Portable and lightweight design
  • Fast warm up and response times
  • No recalibration needed for 12 months
  • Comes with batteries and storage case
  • Easy to replace semiconductor sensor


Independent testing has shown the AL6000 to have an accuracy of ±0.01% BAC at readings under 0.100%. Precision may vary slightly above this level, but still meets and exceeds comparable consumer breathalysers.

Results have proven repeatable and consistent across the device’s measurement range. For most personal uses, this level of performance is more than sufficient.

Use Cases

The AL6000 suits a wide variety of applications:

  • Personal use before driving
  • Workplace safety screening
  • Checking before handling dangerous equipment
  • Monitoring alcohol intake at events
  • Bar and club entry testing
  • College and university alcohol awareness programs

With market forces bringing the price down to its lowest ever, mouthpieces able to be purchased in bulk, the semiconducting sensor available online, and allowing for easy changeout at home, there is little wonder that the AL6000 is widely considered 2019’s best value digital breathalyser for personal use.
