    Answer This Question

    A:  Well First of all it takes two batteries to operate it. My question is, in the description it says no battery required. I guess that's true if you don't want to use it.

        Q:Can it detect voltage from wires behind drywall?
        by|Aug 23, 2022
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Not really, the tip typically has to be within 1/2” - 1/4” of the hot wire to sense electricity. The tip is shaped so it can safely be inserted into the hot side of a receptacle to detect power, but will typically start beeping when the tip is on the face of the plug on the hot side.  I would not depend on it to detect power behind the sheet rock.

          A:  Mark, This tool can be used to detect voltage present behind drywall, you will need to increase the sensitivity of the tool, but also keep in mind, that in electrically noisy environments, this may produce bad readings and accuracy may vary. If you need to trace wiring through drywall to locate a break in a wire, you will need more advanced equipment.

            Q:There are 2 lights 1 reads contact and the other reads non contact what are the difference between the both

            1 Answer
            Answer This Question

            A:  Dear Customer, The Contact LED will illuminate if there is voltage present with the tip when the device is set to the O position for extra low sensitivity, physical contact must be made to a live wire for the device to indicate if voltage is present. the Non-Contact function is used when set to either L or H and will indicate presence of voltage without physical contact being made to the wire.

              Junk - Broke in the same way as others
              Battery spring terminal broke off after only a few uses. Others on here seem to have had the same exact issue, pointing to a bad design/design flaw. Because I didn't have a receipt and I purchased it well over a year ago, Home Depot sent me a $10 gift card to compensate. I'll use that towards buying a KLEIN tester instead.

                Cheap. It broke after using only a few times in light use.

                  Battery terminal broke off almost right away
                  Battery terminal that is located deep inside the tester broke off almost right away. It looked like it was supposed to be just snapped back in place. I needed this tool working at that moment and tried to fix it. When opening up I broke circuit board but find out that battery terminal meant to be soldered in place. You can have better explanation from pictures

                    Horrible
                    I've had this for two days and whenever I turn it on it starts beeping non-stop. I mean literally anywhere.

                      Broke after 3 uses.
                      I was not happy with this from the beginning because it seemed cheaply made and I did not care for the alert. When the unit started getting finicky about coming on, I checked the batteries and found that one of the battery terminals was broken off. Not happy.

                        Top keeps coming off...otherwise a great tester
                        Would be a 4 or 5 star tester if not for the top coming off all the time. Exchanged 3x and all 3 the top comes off after about 2 weeks of use. The sensitivity adjuster is excellent and the update to the design is great but that one flaw is annoying.

                          Anyone who works with electricity should have a tester! This one has adjustable sensitivity and sound to indicate proximity and is small and light weight! Really good price on a quality unit!

                          Didn’t last very long
                          When I went to change the battery the spring broken immediately. Seems to be a very common problem. Going to get a Klein one instead

                            It is very useful, accurate and highly accurate. I really like that it turns itself off after a few seconds.
