"as soon as i recieved this item and refitted the batteries that are supplied and put it to use it worked faultlessly ,to me its the best tool for the job ,far ,far better than some products on the market HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and great value for money darylw"
"great little tester. nice to hold handy to fit in pocket but not the loudest. there is also a bright green light that comes on when the tester is on. this sometimes overpowers the little red light at the side of it. wouldnt be great in noisy/bright enviroments."
"Cheap, works well and very useful!! It lights up green when it is switched on and then flashes red and makes a noise when detecting an AC voltage. Very useful for when dealing with electrics round the house."
"Apart from its serious safety value this is a great addition to anyones toolbox because if you are as geeky as me you will go round the house touching light switches and sockets to see the detector flash its lights and buzz its buzzer.
This is a great and safe way to detect live circuits without touching bare metal contacts, Simply place the probe on the suspected live wire or near it and the pen will tell you whether it is live or not. Super value"
"Yes it can find live electrical cable. As other have said the green light could be a bit dimmer and the red warning light a bit brighter especially when used outdoors. Not easy to see the red but the little buzzer helps."
"It detects live wires without the need for bare connections and it discriminates between live and neutral.
When switched on it has a bright green light to which a red light is added when a live conductor is detected. I find the green light rather too bright which is the only reason for four stars instead of five."
"Worked well indicating on most cables found the heatproof immersion supply tricky but did work. Very good value, cant comment on reliability as it is less than a week old, also depends how long the batteries hold out. Overall though recommended."
