Good thing. – Pen Style Non Contact AC Voltage Detector (90V~1000V/2*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Cheap - Small enough - Bright light
Cons:
- Tight battery cover (but made from thin plastic). You need patience and accuracy to open it. - If the cable is thick (more than about 5 mm) it may not to show voltage from all sides of the cable. And you must move it around the cable for testing. (Not good if the cable fixed and you have not well access to it from all sides!) - The very large distance of detection fro some plugs. (Sometimes it overrides nearby socket.)
Other:
It's worth the money. In my opinion, it's good for amateur, not for professional (Or for the reserve to professional).
Bottomline:
Good thing for it's price.
