Random auto shutoff

If I turn the tester on and hold it in my hand then it'll stay on for a little while. Not sure how long exactly. But if I start testing romex in my house it'll show power on a couple test areas and then just turn off in less than 30 seconds. I have tried different batteries with the same results. Is this a problem with the tester or are the energizer industrial batteries not as good or what could be the problem
Asked by: Byoung
No, it does not turn off automatically. You need to turn it on and then off using the little black button.

How sensitive is this tester? Do you have to actually touch the insulation for it to register. I'm hoping it is, so that if there is a bundle of wires in an electrical box, I can find the live ones easily.
Asked by: BrianK9
I noticed that it has to actually touch a wire or be about a quarter inch or closer to a contact with AC.

How dangerous is this to use and can a person without electric knowledge use it?

Asked by: dibs
As far as electrical tools go, this is about as safe as they come. But you should be aware that the point of this tool is to detect live wires, switches or outlets. So that means you would be using it on live wires, outlets, circuit breakers, etc. It is tool to help you work more safely. It is not foolproof and you must have an awareness of its limitations. There are a lot of great homeowner reference books out there. and lots of info on the internet too. Do a little reading before you tackle your project. I would recommend having a knowledgeable person with you as you start to think about working on some simple projects.

How do you use this?

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?
Asked by: Arlene
First turn on the probe. There is a button along the side . Second. take the probe an put the pen like end next to a cord that's plugged into an outlet. It should flash red and make noise if its got power. If its flashes red and there is no sound hit the power button again. Third. You can use this probe to see if anything has electricity a switch, circuit breaker, outlet it an excellent safety device.

Absolutely flawless, hands down one of the best purchases I've made in a long time.  I can't speak highly enough about this product, which is solidly built and perfectly designed.  It has become a staple of my homeowners tool kit.  I've used it at my house, several friends houses, and my wife's business during electrical renovations across a wide variety of DIY projects.  This unit has helped me run wiring, map circuits, rewire rooms, install sockets and plugs and switches.  It's a constant companion and I love it.  It works peerlessly sounding both an audible and visual alarm when current is detected.  It's so easy to decipher, my wife has used it to help me map the wiring in my new house since the diagram on the panel was completely inaccurate.

My wife and I bought an old house and there were any number of electrical issues that arose almost immediately. Where does this wire go? What switch does this turn on? Is there any power connected to this fixture? You name it. This little device saved me hundreds of dollars in not having to hire an electrician to answer some basic questions. It's non-invasive, simple to use and more than cost effective. I have other electrical testers for outlets and such, but if you need to follow a wire or just come across one that you don't know if it's live or not, this will save you time and maybe your life.

This is useful for making a quick final check of an electrical box to be more sure that there are no hot wires before starting work. Be sure to bring it close to every terminal of every device in the box. Check again if you take off any wire nuts. It is also useful for determining which wire is the line wire if you are replacing standard switches with smart switches.

Sorry to tell everyone but this is a piece of junk and having the name Klein on it is a joke. I have purchased other testers like this one made by other companies and experienced the same issue. They all say they can withstand being dropped. Well let me tell everyone that is a lie. The first time you drop it on the floor you can bet it's not going to work anymore. I have purchased all 3 different ones made with Klein's name on it and everyone of them broke the first time they hit the floor. It does not matter what name brand is on the Non-Contact Voltage Tester you buy they're all made in China and built like a piece of garbage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong This was my third similar volt tester. First time with the Klein brand. The other green one I had did not last a year. The Klein tester was a few bucks more than the others. I love it and am glad I was not being cheap. The nicest thing is the tester has a audible warning device. Turn it on and it beeps. Turn it off and it beeps twice. Hit a hot wire and you get a steady tone. I have been bit by a hot wire before because the battery had run out in the old tester. This is no longer an issue. As long as you get the beep when turning it on, you can count on being safe.

Could not get the light to come on. Pulled out the Klein Tools NCVT-1. I checked the switch, OK. I tested the 12/2 cable from switch to metal receptacle box, OK. i removed the receptacle box cover, test (3) black wires independently. (2) were OK, (1) FAILED. Turned off power, removed the wire cap. (1) wire was broken under the wire cap, Did the repair, replaced the wire cap, turned on the power. All three black wires were hot, Light still would not come on, planned on returning the unit the next day. That evening the light amazingly came on after dark. The Klein Tools NCVT-1 takes away any uncertainty when doing any electrical work. Get one can save your day! d.s. San Antonio

I recently purchased (3) occupancy sensors and have installed them in our apartment so that the lights will turn on and off automatically, which I think is very nice. So the one tool that I needed was this non contact voltage tester, and this identifies the hot wire so that You can properly wire your sensor. This is a very nice tool and one that is good to have at home.
