Product Description

This pen is designed for electrical testing and detects voltages in outlets, light fixings, circuit breakers, wires etc, without touching metal. It is used to identify if the conductor is live or not. The pen is made of plastic and, therefore, the surface of the pen is non-conductive for safety.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nifty little device 30 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase
Having struggled for years with screwdrivers with embedded (almost invisible) neons, I'm really impressed with this device.

I've had neon-embedded screwdrivers over the years, but I was fed up with trying to shield them from the surrounding light while I peer carefully to see if that dim glow was alight or merely just a reflection. The crunch came when I had to fix the pond pump which had a dodgy connection (I installed it in a rush ten years ago), so I was working near water with 240V wires with a power source that I suspected was broken. As it happens, it wasn't - it was alive, indicating that the problem lay somewhere else, and that the danger was in front of me.

This device is fully insulated, so it's a lot safer to use. And it works by proximity, so that I didn't have to make direct contact with the 240V wire - when the probe gets as close as 3mm, it will light up - brightly. And it's sensitive enough that I can tell which wire is actually conducting the current. All these things are important when working with lethal voltage levels.

A great product, which arrived promptly, and the guys behind it obviously care about the product. Well done.

It shows a live wire by glowing red at the tip, great for the tool box and bought as my 10 year old one broke - Well worth the money paid and as others have stated this item has stopped me touching a live wire I was assured was not and also a circuit that had been wired in reverse - No moving parts so perfect for the job. Essential if you do any work with live wires. I always check before I work on cables, takes 2 seconds!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening! 8 Feb 2012

I have no idea how I have managed without this product up to now. It is simple, compact and cheap enough for anyone doing DIY.
No more jolts or tingles when your "guesswork" is a little off.
I keep this little beauty as close to hand as my Stanley knife, tape measure and pencil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little tool 13 Sep 2011
By john.b
Really useful voltage detector. Having watched a professional electrician use one, I was surprised that they were so cheap and effective. No more getting out my multimeter and taking fronts off sockets.

5.0 out of 5 stars keep safe 12 Feb 2012
By rob
I`m a plumber and come across live pipes & live cables quite often, the tester pen stick makes it so easy to find out if the cables are live & what they feed (by pulling fuses ) for the price it cost its a must have for safety

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy View 11 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase
The great thing about this detector is the illumionation which gives an easy view of voltage presence. The neon in my old screwdriver was hard to spot in bright conditions.
