Answer: 
There is a very well constructed button that allows you to toggle it on and off very easily. I usually let it cut off automatically as you hear an audible alert when it auto shuts off.

Answer: 
This is the NCVT-1, it ranges from 50 to 1000 Volt AC. The NCVT-2 has a range from 50 to 1000 Volts AC and handles 12 - 48 AC Volts. The NCVT 3 has a flashlight. These will not work on DC Voltage.

It turns on just fine (green light) but when tested on a couple of things with known voltage, it did not turn red. What am I doing wrong?

Answer: 
It works by reading the field produced by current. All you have to is first touch it to a cord you know has power- this will let you know tester is working.
Then touch cord (or wire) you want to very is live.

Answer: 
The Klein Tools NCVT-1 will detect 50 to 1000 Volts AC. If you believe you are using the tester properly in this range, you may need to return it for a replacement. Please see the Warnings section in the instruction manual for conditions in which the tester will not or may not detect voltage.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 132 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Voltage Reader This meter was very easy to use and it will be in my toolbox for ever. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by needed the tool and this functions as expected simple to use , only purchase one week ago, we will see how long it lasts July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well, much better than the Craftsman product This tool is well constructed. The end (sensor) fits well into a wall outlet and the auto shut off feature is convenient and helpful in saving batteries. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pretty cool lil tool real easy to use. push button on/off and it does it's thing. only one issue i actually modified on it which is the plastic pocket clip. it's a b--tch to get it to clip on my tool bags so i filed the plastic nob molded onto the clip just a little bit and it slides on, hangs on and comes off like i want it to. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality I had a Fluke model and it was unreliable. I purchased this Klein model instead and it detected voltage 100% of the time. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good, solid non-contact tester Works great with bare wires and plugged into a socket. Sometimes doesn't register normally insulated wires without moving it around a bit. It is well built but doesn't seem ruggedly built - you'd not throw this in the bottom of your tool box. It has an auto off but I would like to be able to shut it off myself. For an inexpensive tester it is a good value. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Voltage Tester A very easy to use tool. Very whenused power wires June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A must have tool in every toolbox This non-contact voltage tester is very easy to use, highly accurate and durable. I bought it to replace a less expensive model and the difference is amazing. Definitely worth spending the extra money. I mostly use it to make sure the power is off before changing outlets and switches. I also use it to test power cords when something doesn't work. I've saved thousands of dollars by diagnosing that a device isn't working because the power supply or power cord is faulty and simply replaced it rather than buying a whole new product or making an expensive service appointment. I highly recommend using this device and specifically the Klein brand. April 5, 2016
