It strips well over advertised range. Can’t cut over advertised range.
I ran the stripper through some wire I had around the house - 24 gauge solid copper: stripped cleanly - 22-2 stranded speaker wire: able to strip cleanly cleanly. I accidentally found it could do a clean strip of both conductor at the same time. - Real challenge: 22-2 shielded twisted pair. Stripper, tore off the shielding foil, but preserved the twisted pair and stranded ground wire. - 12 gauge solid copper: strips cleanly, but the cutter can’t cut it as promised. Cutter managed to penetrate the insulation and about 1/3 of the wire diameter. - 10-2 stranded thick insulation outdoor low voltage lighting wire. As expected, it wouldn't fit into the cutter, but the stripper still works well. The Smart Lock is only useful for storage. Difficult to operate with one hand. The auto-adjust feature works well. No detectable conductor nicks in the wires I tried. Slider allows you to set your strip length from 8-12mm. It’s also removable if you need longer lengths. To simulate what happens when I’m wiring a ceiling fixture, I dropped the strippers 10 times from a height of 7 ft. Five times with the strippers open and 5 times with the lock engaged. No damage done. Strippers still worked as well as before. The locked strippers unlocked during every drop. I really appreciate the safety warning on the back of the package. It says to read all instructions before using. Not that they are needed, but the instructions that are there are very limited. These strippers are lightweight, comfortable to use and work well in tight spaces. This would be my go-to tool for wiring if only it could cut 12 gauge solid copper as advertised. The strippers are good for light-duty stripping, but forget about these if you need to do house wiring.

Fair small gauge strippers
Overall, these wire strippers are just too weak to handle the majority of wire. First glance, the strippers seem decently sturdy. They are all plastic. The only metal on the tool are the springs and metal cutting heads. If used on 18 gauge and smaller wires, it works a majority of the time, but not all. When you start getting towards 16 gauge and longer, these strippers become completely useless. I first started testing the strippers out on 10 gauge solid copper wire. The strippers kept sliding over the jacket, so I figured maybe this wire had a little stronger jacket then normal. So then I moved to 12 gauge. Then I moved to 14. Same scenario every time. While trying to use the strippers, the knife kept sliding over the jacket. When trying to apply more pressure, the blade would continue to slide over the jacket. The handles flexed from the pressure on the tool. The wire cutting tool is built in to the handle. When cutting the larger capacity of the wire, the handles would flex and bind, and would get to the point where they felt like they would snap in my hands. The package and tool clearly states that it strips up to 10 gauge, even through 16 was pushing it on the tool. These are decent light-duty strippers and cutters. But if you go anywhere in the larger half of the claimed 10-24 gauge range, they are completely useless, and almost dangerous it seems. I felt like the handle was going to snap in my hands and I would have shrapnel in my palm. If you only need strippers for less than 18 gauge, small electronic projects, you are fine. But these strippers are absolute garbage for their stated ratings and purpose.

Neat Little Stripper
My old fashioned wire strippers with several fixed cutting sizes were getting a bit dull after years of use and the idea owning a pair that would gauge the wire thickness automatically appealed to me. This tool will cut wire up to 12 AWG and strip insulation from wire of 10 to 24 AWG. The tool is easy and comfortable to hold and there is a button at the back which locks the tool in a compact manner for easy storage. At the business end there is an adjustable stop in the mouth of the tool and this enables insulation to be stripped between 3/8” and 1/2” (8 to 12 mm). In operation the tool is easy to use, just place the wire into the jaws and squeeze the trigger, the insulation is efficiently cut and removed. The tool is made of black plastic and the lock button and stripping stop are bright blue and easily visible. I tried the stripper on several common household wire types that I use from fine speaker wire to heavy duty kettle lead to domestic mains electrical circuit wire and the stripper worked easily on all types and sizes including solid and stranded wire. Impressively, the tool comes with a ten year warranty as well. For what I use a wire stripper for this tool cannot be faulted.

It's a great tool for the price, however about half the time, the insulation stripped from the wire gets stuck in the upper portion of the mechanism. I had to keep a tweezers on hand to remove the tiny plastic pieces before I could strip my next wire. When you have to do a LOT of them in a row, constantly focusing on this is a bit of a hassle, but otherwise, it works well.
