Fluke 1AC-II Voltage Detector Pen
You get what you pay for
This volt stick is the most expensive one you can buy at screwfix but you get what you pay for with this sort of stuff, its reliable robust and easy to use, would recommend you spend a little bit extra and go for the top quality

useful and accurate litte tool
I bought this to identify a supply cable in a tight bunch of cables all with sheathing (lighting circuits, domestic job). It works fine through sheathing and it would flash/bip only when you on the side of the cable with the brown (line) wire. Since than I used it many times in similar situations, never failed me. One of the tools that I have often with me. Bit expensive but overall happy with the purchase

Saved my bacon
Great bit of kit, a must when working where there are any cables, turned off electrics at one house but cable was still live, glad I had this to check cable with.

Bought this to work out old wiring in a new house we've bought. Saved me hours upon hours, would definitely recommend having one in the toolbox.
