Why cheap out with non UL rated electronic safety device from a questionable seller when you can get a name brand and rated one for under $10 sold and shipped by Amazon?

Sperry $7.49 https://www.amazon.com/Sperry-Instruments-GFI6302-Receptacle-Professional/dp/B000RUL2UU [amazon.com]

Klein $9.63 https://www.amazon.com/Klein-Tool...B01AKX8L0M

Doesn't seem questionable to me. Seller has sold over 9,000 products with a 99% approval. And this product gets an "A" from fakespot: https://www.fakespot.com/product/...earth-test

Old Methods:
Plug in radio and flip breakers. Use screw in outlet for light sockets.
Have some one monitor a light plugged into outlet. And yell "off" when it goes off. Double check with an additional "on" then "off".

Use something like this:
​ Sperry Instruments CS550A Circuit Breaker Finder $16

I would stay away from anything Tacklife makes. I got a voltage tester and another unit from Amazon and posted my somewhat negative reviews. Spend the extra money and get nme brand such as Sperry, Fluke, etc.

That's good - thanks for the laugh and the device.
