Read the recent reviews, this one is pretty unreliable.

Read the one star reviews on this one. Someone tested it on a known hot socket and it didn't detect it. Also, light didn't work for some, only the sound. Back to the drawing board.

I have a Klein one, so I'll call that the middle tier to your breakdown. More than $8 but not very expensive since I bought it in a set. I love it, it's great and I've used it dozens of times...

Klein had a recall on some of their testers that exhibited this problem, may want to check if yours is included. NCVT1 recall: NCVT5 recall:...

I had the same experience, which i was surprised by. While I love fluke tools I kept my klein one over the fluke.

My $2 tester works just fine. Its like a Toyota vs a Maybach, after all they do the same job.

I'm late commenting on this post, but good call. I have a Fluke multimeter which is a beast and I love it. I bought this on Prime Day 'cause I couldn't pass up a deal, but returned it immediately. I...

Yeah I'll have to pass then. I simply want to know if there's live current nearby that will kill me if I touch it. Helps me figure out if I hit the right breaker before doing electrical work. I have...

You all worrying about a little zap ... my grandfather used to carry around a mini screwdriver that had a small bulb in it. You'd stick it in the socket and it would light up if there was voltage. ...

Get a outlet tester. I prefer the smaller ones. The tester you have your pocket or electric go bag, is lot better than the one you left home. The Southwire "40022S GFCI Receptacle Tester", Klein...

No, this Fluke does not work like that. I have had testers that worked that way, they would signal even when they were a few inches away from a voltage source. That is fine if all you want to do is...

I was trained by a Master Electrician. One of the first lessons: On/Off/On. Test something known to be live to ensure the meter is working, then verify the wiring you're working on is off, then...

Any should trigger without touching the wire. You should even be able to stick it near a socket and it should go off.

Probably a switched outlet and they broke the wrong one. You break the hot, not the neutral. If you touch the hot and then a ground, you'd get shocked. Could be the ground is energized somehow...

Exactly. I have an old beat up Greenlee tester that works fine, and a newer Craftsman that recently died. I replaced it with a Fluke that was on sale. Whether using the old Greenlee or the new Fluke,...

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the probe size on the Fluke. It is too large to fit in modern plug sockets. The Ideal one does. I've got both.

I picked one of these up on Prime Day, and I've already put it to use half a dozen times (rewired some fluorescent light fixtures to bypass the ballast and replace them with LED tubes, replaced a...

It's weird, I bought the cheapest voltage tester at Lowes, a Kobalt one, and I could get positives without actually touching the wire. It was very useful. I lost it and bought a more expensive...

What is the problem of the outlet when the detector detects but the outlet doesn't actually provide any power?
