Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month
- Cheap, the same "brand name" item costs ten times more
- Works very well, it's quite sensitive and detects voltage even in many devices if you put it near
- Not 100% reliable (doesn't always detect the presence of the AC voltage in the cases where you expect it to)
- The end is FLAT which means by default it won't fit inside the holes of Euro or Schuko outlets. HOWEVER, (see below)
The good thing about these cheap gadgets is that you don't feel bad damaging them, so I just took a cutter and scraped the plastic off the edges of the tip (there is enough "clearance" at the sides) so now it neatly fits ALL types of sockets :)
Great tool, especially useful if you need to detect presence of electricity when you have many wires together. Note however, it should _NOT_ be used as a replacement for a contact voltage detector as it is not always 100% accurate
