      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.

      AC/DC voltage detector

      This does light up and talks just fine on AC voltage. On checking DC it just sits there no bells and whistles. This is the same checker I got with my meter P/N 82174 and it didn't check DC either. You need to change the discription page, this will only check AC.

      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.
