Cheap bit of safety, it's always smart to be doubly sure with electric, and this works just fine, simple to use, can't go far wrong. Small and compact, and can be taken anywhere

I got this essential piece of kit from Electricfix (Screwfix) . It gives you piece of mind on electrical work, of course you must test this detector on a known power source to prove it.

Great to use for quick identification of live conductors. But can give false positives. Always better to get a proper approved GS38 tester. But for your pocket tester or tool bag it will work well for a quick ID

Use it as a quick check to identify cables before using a multimeter. Can give false readings of live cables but this is better than the other way round. Used it to trace a break in a cable to save chopping out.

A useful bit of kit but not to be 100% relied upon. For narrowing a group of live cables down to the dead one I want to cut its quite accurate. Circuits should also be checked with the correct voltage proving unit.

I know we aren’t supposed to use or rely on these as a safe isolation proving unit but as a quick check unit for non contact it works. Then if you are doing proper safe isolation procedure you can bring out the proper tester before carrying out the task at hand.

As a heating engineer one of the first test we are meant to do is check the casing to a boiler isn't live, this non contact test pen has saved my life on a few occasions. The pen has two modes, visual only or visual and beep. Quality build and long battery life make it the best test pen. As with anything the best it's not the cheapest, but you can't put a price on your life.

Lad who works with me has just purchased one of these as he seems to just go for the better named brands instead of looking asking for advice or reading other reviews. Although a very well known brand, for what it is its pricey, alternative options are available at a more affordable price. Nice item and does as it should just priced due to the brand name instead of being more competitive.

Must have for any tool box. Always carry one on me but never trust a volt stick without testing. Good value for money

Defiantly a must for any trade, has saved my bacon a number of times, can get a few false readings from static but I'd rather that than get a shock!

Carry this in my pocket all day. Fluke is the only brand I trust with non contact testers. On my third one because I keep misplacing them, but would no buy a cheaper one.

Every time my one gets pinched (people tend to like anything that lights up!) I have no problem paying the amount of money again to purchase another. Although they're not 100% reliable, they are very good for the better to be safe than sorry moments. Pay for themselves in not having to replace cutters

Had a few of these over the years, always best to go with a trusted well known brand as they are more robust and last!! I've had a few cheap n cheerful ones which I've ended up usually launching into the air at some point! The good ones have lasted I've just lost them or left them somewhere ! These are ok for a notification of power present but always test it first with a voltage/continuity tester before sticking ya fingers in !!

I have a few of these and always keep one in my pocket. Good for quick diagnostics to see if something has power going to it. I have been caught out a few times with it giving false readings if the batteries are low or if it is moved too quick so I always test properly if I am stripping anything down.

Never all that keen on using a safety device called fluke, just seems like tempting fate ;). Otherwise, works well for a good while then starts being erratic so I buy a new one about every year. I like them.

Used it religiously for six months or so and then it would start turning itself on or off of its own accord in my trouser pocket. (The long ones on work trouser legs not the wallet/keys ones). I've changed batteries when required and it made no difference. I found that sometimes it wouldn't pick up when i knew a cable was live and vice versa it would give false readings on dead cables. Try rubbing one on your sleeve and see it give a reading off the static. I've gone back to using a multimeter and a voltage tester as I know I can rely on those.( Both made by Fluke) I love Fluke but I don't think these instruments as a whole should be relied upon to verify safety, I also don't think that the Fluke one is any more worthwhile than a cheapo screwfix etc. one.

I've had about 5 of these over the past 5 years and they are an awesome bit of kit, very handy for simple things like checking to see if a Pump has a supply or not. I have had 5, not because they are breaking but because I keep losing them. They do sometimes show a false voltage but it's better that way than the other.

Best volt stick out there, I've tried a few in my time. It's reliable due to the flashing indication that it's turned on and a double confirmation of Voltage detection via a solid light and beep. These devices are not suitable for a proper safe isolation prior to working on a circuit but handy when needed.

Question:

The best one I’ve been able to find. I have had some that vibrate and make noise aswell as light up and they seem to all break a lot more quickly. I wouldn’t change to another brand.

Asked on 1st December 2017 by Ickenham Heating Limited

Answer:

The Klein one is the only one I’ve found more reliable than this. It also operates at 0-50v as well.
