Handy – Audio Visual Electroprobe (Voltage Detector Pen) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Great price Comes with batteries
Cons:
none come to mind, I still use my multimeter mainly anyway.
Other:
I bought one because it's good to double check anyway. This does the job well, has never been wrong. Actually, I have used this to good effect, sometimes your meter can't get a potential, while the voltage pen can detect some voltage present that's leaking to neutral/earth where you multimeter may not pick it up.
Bottomline:
Everyone working on mains power should have one of these. This particular one has been reliable, and it's priced well enough you won't be bothered if you lose it.
