Excellent product - reliable and sensitive. – Audio Visual Electroprobe (Voltage Detector Pen) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Easy to use, pocket sized, and it works! Good sensitivity level at 240v and works down to 110v too. The "power" button means a reduced chance of flat batteries too!
Cons:
None really - it does the job just fine, and providing you test BEFORE using it will provide the intended safety factor when working on "maybe live" installations!
Other:
Useful and portable. Bought another for a colleague and he's just as pleased with it as I am. Seems durable and the battery enclosure is very easy to open, so less likelihood of "user damage".
Bottomline:
Useful and reliable safety item for anyone's toolbox. Always useful when looking for that broken mains connection (and making sure that the power IS off before you dive in to the switchboard!!)
