must have item!

" Fantastic value and performance.
Tells you firstly if the plug socket is wired correctly and secondly it identifies the problem if it is not!
I would never fit another plug socket without this great piece of kit to hand! "

" Picked up from store and got it home used it soon as to find out if it worked. Well it was great so easy to use plug in and go. Would say why I haven't got one before now. Good for the DIY person doing easy jobs. Would recommend this item. "

" Doesn't say, but this also has an audible indicator as well. Good alternative to more expensive testers.
Bad points: Doesn't show Neutral Earth Reverse
Good points: Well made and good audio and visual indicators. "

Socket Tester
1 Jan 2015
By hgfdasdfghjkl
, Lichfield
" This tester is good for basic testing with good LED displays and audible indicators - steady or pulsing which I like - however not until I opened the package did I know that the warning states Will not identify Neutral / Earth reverse. (Enlarge the image above to see)
This renders it an expensive "Live Socket" tester only it should not be relied upon for safety testing.
That said it is an inexpensive and fast device.
Only bought it yesterday so reliability cannot be known - this is a daft survey question for newly purchased products "

not to be trusted.
12 Jan 2015
By freak
, andover
" I'm a sparky a customer bought this and called me out to his house as he had problems with his sockets with vague explanations. Turned out he bought this unit and it showed a fault of reverse polarity. I turned up and used my kewtech equivalent and it showed no earth. Upon further investigation I found the main earth disconnected. I would advise any buyingbthis unit to be aware that it is not a definitive tester only an indicator of power present and should not be trusted. "
