As other have stated both the function and design are flawed.
The power button is poorly designed, it was constantly turning on in my tool bag.
Functionally, it consistently failed to identify the correct breaker, would give no reading at all or alert to multiple breakers. When following the instructions you have to set the unit up to "learn the panel" but if you are trying to label a panel by yourself the unit will time out and turn off in the amount of time it takes you to move the transmitter and get back to the panel, meaning you have to re "learn" the panel each time.
I returned mine and went back to the old fashion way of labeling panels, turn everything in the house on, turn off a breaker and go find what is off.

Power button is poorly designed. Dont even think about putting this in your tool bag/box with the batteries still in it. The thing turns on with the slightest feather touch. Very annoying! Wasn't sensitive enough to clearly identify a single breaker either.

Decent performance and price, but has a dumb flaw. As the instruction state, you turn the receiver unit on by touching the button, then off by holding the button down for 3 seconds. The button protrudes from the side, so any inadvertent touch turns it on. So no storing the receiver where it can get jostled, or your battery goes dead. I'm going to throw mine out and replace it with a unit that has a better design.

Piece of junk. It identified a outlet in my garage on 2 different circuits breakers. I plugged in a lamp and shut off both of them and the lamp never went out. I followed the instructions to the letter. Taking back to the store.

Every homeowner should have one in their tool pouch.

I read the manual and followed the instructions and the finder would either identify the wrong breaker or not pick up anything at all. I will have to get a higher priced unit that is effective enough to identify any circuits.
