Rated 1 out of 5Â by jacck I have had FOUR fail on me within 3-6 months
The feature set and Klein name are the reasons I bought this tester in the first place, and why I gave it a second, third, and fourth chance when it failed.
When it fails, the LED flashlight continues to work (meaning battery is not the problem) but the continuity and voltage test features don't work. Sometimes wriggling the leads has restored full function for a short time, but ultimately that doesn't help either. I am not rough on my tools, these failed testers have received only normal wear and tear (removing it from its place in my tool belt and placing it back).
Klein denies knowledge of a trend of these failing, despite multiple reviews on the internet describing this type of premature failure. They told me they will "take it in for testing and replace it."
C'mon Klein, we expect more from you. If you can't do adequate Quality Control on your line of test equipment, get out of that business and stick to pliers. Peoples lives are on the line, and you owe something better to the tradespeople who have bought your test products based on your reputation .

Rated 4 out of 5Â by SilverFox Reliable and functional for daily usage
I purchased the unit to replace a 40 year old Square D Wiggy that became increasingly difficult to find replacement leads. The additional low voltage detection, continuity and built in flashlight allowed me to eliminate other tools that I carry and use daily. While no meter is a one size fits all in the field, this voltage tester is very reliable and functional for daily use that will go from checking doorbell transformer voltage to mainline voltage confirmation.
