Rated 2 out of 5Â by Porcupine Not as useful as expected
I bought this pen with the intention of using it to map out live wires behind a wall prior to stripping the plaster off. I was amazed at the price, saw good reviews and bought it. I then found out that it isn't able to detect wires behind walls. Nothing happens. It only registers AC voltage when the probe at the tip of the pen in put inside a 3 pin socket, which isn't useful to me at all. I re-read the product description to check that I hadn't made any assumptions, but sure enough, the description implies that it can detect voltage and doesn't specify that it can only do so at extremely close range (i.e when put inside a socket). Useful if that's what you need it for, but if - like me - you are hoping to locate live wires, then avoid this product as it will not aid you.
