50v - 1000v. Order the 2203 if you need the extra 10-50v range for low voltage circuits.

Answer: 
the voltage range is the lowest voltage that will be sensed by the tester and the maximum voltage is the highest voltage that it can sense without damaging the sensor. This normally says AC for normal household current or AC/DC if it will sense DC voltage as well.

The Milwaukee web page comparison shows the 2003 has a low voltage 10-50v range that can test transformer driven low voltage circuits like hvac thermostats and HVAC handlers, LV halogen track lights, and doorbells. The web page indicates that HD is stocking the 2003 online only and I wish they were in the store.

March 22, 2015
I have a bunch of knob and tube wires running in the attic. My guess is most are active but a few are not. Is it possible to use this and old it up to each wire, middle of run, to see if it has power? If not what term/title do I search to find something that will work for this purpose?

Answer: 
You can use a voltage sniffer to check the various wires. Be sure and check both sides of the circuit as only one will set off the sniffer.
Knob and Tube is very safe wiring assuming the jacket is not dried out as the wires are a foot or more apart as they run about the building for the most part.

Answer: 
Yes you can use this voltage tester to find which wires are live( carrying current) and which are not. It is handy because it had a light on the tip and that should help you in the attic. Even though they call it non-contact I always hold it against any wires I am testing just to be sure I am testing it correctly. Remember that some of the wires could be attached to a switch and be off because the switch Read More

Very impressive tool. Do they make these testers for 12v dc systems?

In my line of work,i work on all types of 12v equipment. There are at times,when a multimeter is not feasible. Most of the equipment has wire harnesses,that are located in hard to reach places. A test light instrument,requires a puncture of the wiring protective covering,to get a reading. This is okay,for some wiring but some wires i deal with,are too small to puncture. Is there a similar NON- Contact 12v DC Voltage Tester manufactured by any company out there?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tester Another solid product from Milwaukee! Love the power button placement so it doesn't waste battery life! August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good item this is the first voltage tester I've ever bought but I did the job. I always made sure the power was off by plugging a lamp into the wall outlet when changing them. only thing I didn't like is that it made a slight beep sometimes when the power was off but you can tell the difference from when it beeps to let you know there's 120v July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product so far Tester works very well. Some testers will detect current when it gets within a few inches of a hot wire making it hard to identify which wire is hot if there are several wires running next to each other. This tester detects when you touch the end of the device to the wire making it much easier to identify which wire is hot. HD should really start selling this tester at the store and not just online. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Big Time Saver This hot pen saves a lot of time and headache as you can quickly determine whether a wire is hot or not. Tends to err on the side of caution so when it is wrong it says a wire is hot when it in fact is not but this is better than the other way around. Overall a great tool to have for the peace of mind it provides. The light it has also comes in handy a lot as it makes seeing into tight places easy. June 14, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Flimsy, Not Durable Works OK. Led is an advantage. Poor design of rear "on" button which breaks off easily and the tiny micro switch under it will soon follow. May 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by too sensitive good way to get electrocuted picks up live wire voltage on any wire in the electrical box. . I bought the two pack. both died and are no good within a few months. April 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best tester Used many different brands. As an electrician, this is my favorite. Well built and the flashlight on it comes in handy all the time. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best voltage tester i have purchased so far. I like the sound of the tick tracer part. Also the led light and the green light that indicates that is on. I would highly recommend this tester to anyone. March 22, 2016
