Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for the money Bought this as I had lost or lent my other one to do a quick job Nice little piece of kit that does the job, it even included batteries. Any one dealing with electrical should have one of these

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Effective Exactly what I've need for years. Simple to follow instructions and so far works very well for such a small purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Badly designed switch For me, having a switch that toggles the detector on or off with a very light action is a major weakness. If I leave it in my toolbox, the switch will probably get jostled on, so the next time I want to use it, the batteries will be flat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dead or ALIVE? Just like having your own Sonic Screwdriver... After having fun being the DR, I have found on a real-world test that the Sonic screwdriver doesn't cut the mustard. After finding a dead cable LIVE and a live cable DEAD. It seems that this device is either over sensitive and sees everything as being ALIVE, including Wood, Plaster and my Leg! Do a test on a known LIVE cable and its ffine, it identifies its LIVE. But, on a job well it lacks accuracy, and it seems that any angle or position you put the pen in can cause the LIVE detection to detect that the DEAD is LIVING.... Its sort of a ZOMBIE detector... I wouldn't trust this device, so I am now looking for a more accurate device to confirm if my DEAD Cable that is ALIVE from time to time with this Pen Tester is really DEAD or intermittently ALIVE! OVERALL, for the money its a good quick test, but wouldn't stick my reputation on this if I was a professional electrician! Fortunately I am just a DIYer, so its just OK... As said makes a GREAT Sonic Screwdriver...

My dishwasher has no power getting to it. I've checked the plug and the socket and they are ok. I'm assuming I can use this to check the thermostats and the power unit?

Does it only detect voltage

Does it also identify pipes and studding ?.
Asked by: rocket3david
Hello rocket3david, This will not be able to detect pipes and studding. You may be looking more for a digital detector. Thank you for using Q and A.

Hi, Before I start drilling I want to make sure I'm not about to drill through a wire, will this detect if there's a wire in the wall please? Many thanks, Ben.

Beeping

When detecting live cables, the detector beeps continuously. On dead cables, it does not beep at all. This is all good so far... However, on some dead cables, it beeps intermittently. What does this mean?
Asked by: BaGo
I've tried to find the answer to this and nothing in the manual or the web. I could be wrong so best to check with an expert but I believe it may be detecting earth continuity.
