Excellent voltage detector.

"This is one of the best detectors I have brought.
It is excellent value for money and puts some of the bigger named detectors to shame. Every one should have one of these in their tool box.

"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."

"A while back I bought a similar detector from a well-known nationwide DIY store. It broke after about ten uses, and also made every battery inserted into it dangerously hot.
The Screwfix version is about half the price and is constructed better. If you need a reliable voltage detector pen, you need to buy this one!"

Great detector

"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."

Great Little gadget
30 Jun 2013
By
, Shrewsbury, Shropshi
"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"

"Bought one of these from the counter promo whilst in store recently. I had intended to get a similar device anyway so it all fell into place.
So far pleased with the item, appears to work well and doesn't appear to pick up power from adjacent cables in error which is good.
Supplied with batteries."

"I purchased this to find a fault in my wiring. It didn't work when I got home but Screwfix replaced it without any hassle. The replacement worked first time I used it.
Now it forms a valuable part of my tool kit and I wouldn't be without one. Great value for money for such an instrument."

AC Voltage Detector
6 Jun 2014
By
, North Somerset
"Bought this as a special offer featured on the front of the Screwfix counter. Got it home, switched it on and it didn't work.....until I realised I had to remove the plastic wrapping on the supplied batteries! Then it worked very well and was very sensitive, only needing to be within a couple of inches of a live circuit when the tip flashes and a buzzer sounds. It is of a pen-like form and has a convenient clip to hold it in a pocket. A sturdy and quality product."

That made it good value.
It is rather fat compared with similar other makes but it still does the job."

Handy for Toolbox
22 Apr 2014
By
, Westhill
"I found this to be a handy tool to keep in the toolbox.
Only critisism would be that the on / off button on the end is easily pushed, so you need to keep it somewhere where it wont be accidentally switched on."
