"Purchased this just before Christmas 2014, not had any major issues with this item yet.
It is able to detect voltage without having to be physically touching the wire(s) your testing, it can detect the voltage from a few centimetres away.
It looks rather robust, but this item got dropped on from the top of a set of ladders and since then every time I touch the detector end it will beep and flash (it never did this before being dropped) although it still works perfectly fine in detecting voltage..
Nice price, seems to be able to take a knock or two, works a treat!"
"Called in for a switched socket, and saw this on the counter, don't normally use these but thought i'd try one. Found it to be really handy on first getting to a job for a quick check of supply. Used a lot since."
"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."
