Flakey
First thing I noticed -- no switch. It sits on my desk and randomly beeps for 3-4 seconds. It sensed where I knew there was AC. But I wouldn't trust using it if it was critical that I know when it was safe to work on a circuit. Thus it is useless.

Voltage Detector

Voltage Detector totally trash. I could never get this product to work. It was DOA, I am too lazy to return it to the store. For a Craftman product I expected better quality.

Better than I expected

I purchased this unit bundled with a Craftsman multimeter, fully expecting it to be a throwaway item. Turns out it came in more handy than the multimeter for detecting live wires, outlets and switches when it came to figuring out if the correct breaker was turned off before doing work. I eventually lost it and bought another one I missed it so much.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Gets the job done

This is an easy way to make sure that you don't kill yourself when doing electrical work. For a small amount of money, you can test wires before sticking your hand in a box. This is something that everybody should own.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

easy to use

check live wires without connecting a meter. I used it to trace a wire thru a thin wall.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Hubby misplaced his tester and needed one asap!

Works perfectly! Doesn't have an on/off switch but overall a good product.

Nice product.

This is handy for quickly telling if a line or outlet has power in it. I use mine regularly, but it seems to act up sometimes and it starts beeping while in my tool belt when it is not close to any source of power. If it keeps acting up I will just take it back for another one before the warranty expires.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Light doesn't work as indicator is exposed to AC current. Dangerous!

AC detector did not work as described. Drove 35 mins to Sears for this item. Opened package, inserted new batteries and tested this product. Detector gave low volume beeping but failed to provide blinking light. Paper insert advises consumer to call 1-888-326-1006 for assistance instead of returning meter to store. Called number, described problem and was instructed to return item to store!! Two 35 min trips to Sears will cost me more than meter is worth. What a waste of time on my part and waste of customer service resources for Sears.
