Non contact AC voltage detector – Pen Style Non Contact Alarm AC Voltage Detector with LED illumination (90V~1000V/2*AAA) Reviews

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

Pros:
Contactless detecting of AC voltage but also reacts on static voltages! And the reason why I did bought it: it detects High Voltage Electric fields. Depending on te distance of the source you can 'measure' if a field id strong or weak. Probably also useable when testing Antennas, but I've not tested yet.
Cons:
Non that I know...
Other:
Well it would be nice when some kind of level of filed strenght would be visible and that the audible sound could be switched off.
Bottomline:
Great stuff! and not expensive! I saw the pen be used in a HV Youtube movie where the E Field was detected at a Tesla Coil.
