Worth the money – Pen Style Non Contact AC Voltage Detector (90V~1000V/2*AAA) Reviews

posted by firethorn on 03/30/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Product is very sensitive (with few limitations - see Cons).
Cons:
Minor Grievances only: -Battery slot is a bit tacky to open. -Like most cheap things, you may need to get an angle on it. It would sometimes not light up without my reangling the device.
Other:
If you are just checking to see if there is current through the lines, and not trying to find the lines, this product is well worth the money.
Bottomline:
This product is well worth the money and if I ever find myself needing another one, I'll be heading right back here. (Just don't rely on it for life threatening situations)
