LAP MS8902H AC Voltage Detector Pen
Two major defects
This is a great little gizmo but suffering from two major defects. If you wear it in your tool belt/pouch as I do it is very easy to accidentaly switch it on because of the badly placed push button on/off switch and not notice until you need to use it and the battery is flat and then we come to the most annoying defect of all - the batteries supplied fit perfectly but any other battery such as Ever Ready, Mallory, Ikea yellow ones, Duracell etc, DO NOT because they are a little fatter and if you push them in, which you can do, you can't get them out again without dismantling the device. I've owned three of them for this reason and like it for what it does but these two major defects are really quite annoying. Looks like they have just bought out a new model which addresses the push button problem but have yet to find out if the battery problem has also been resolved. I NEVER TOUCH A RED OR BROWN WIRE WITHOUT ONE!

voltage detector pen
Great item to have if you do anything with electrics.
better than most detector pens as they only light up if cable etc is live - this thing sings.

Seems like a good product as judged by the fact i've not been electrocuted yet. Very simple to use, very clear when it's on/off or when it detects a live wire or not.
Difficult to judge reliability given i've only had it a week but it's sturdy and won't fall apart if dropped (as it has been a few times already).
