LAP MS6860D Socket Tester
Does what it should
Reasonable price matched with ease of use makes this a no brainer.

not to be trusted.
I'm a sparky a customer bought this and called me out to his house as he had problems with his sockets with vague explanations. Turned out he bought this unit and it showed a fault of reverse polarity. I turned up and used my kewtech equivalent and it showed no earth. Upon further investigation I found the main earth disconnected. I would advise any buyingbthis unit to be aware that it is not a definitive tester only an indicator of power present and should not be trusted.

How did I manage without it ?
This tool is so simple to use, just plug into wall socket for instant reading and peace of mind.

This tester is good for basic testing with good LED displays and audible indicators - steady or pulsing which I like - however not until I opened the package did I know that the warning states Will not identify Neutral / Earth reverse. (Enlarge the image above to see)
This renders it an expensive "Live Socket" tester only it should not be relied upon for safety testing.
That said it is an inexpensive and fast device.
Only bought it yesterday so reliability cannot be known - this is a daft survey question for newly purchased products
