I was a little hesitant to buy this based on one of the reviews. But, I had walked about ½ mile back and forth between the breaker panel and the other end of the house trying to identify outlets to breakers by myself. I figured that for $20 I would give it a try.

It worked great! I put in a fresh 9V battery, plugged the transmitter into an outlet I wanted to identify, and walked to the breaker panel. I did the first pass "calibration scan", followed by the "identification scan", and bingo - breaker identified. There was no question which breaker it was. Not being too trusting, I tried it several more times moving the transmitter around the house - just to make sure it was really that simple and accurate - and it is!

This is brain-dead easy to operate, and worked flawlessly for me. I should have bought it before I did my last re-model project; I would have saved several hours and a lot of walking.

I've been a journeyman electrician for 20 years. We always keep these on our trucks. They work great and always find the circuit. Don't listen to the nay sayers. I do this for a living.

I personally own two different models of this product by this company, and I have sold many of each of the 3 different models made by this company. They work Great. I've never had any problem. You have to be sure you prescan the panel, hold down the button at the correct time as stated in the instructions, and that the circuit is live that you are trying to locate, but it defiately has saved me alot of time on many many occasions. Great product!

This device did everything I wanted with no issues.

I have a 200-Amp panel with about 25 breakers in it, a mixture of single and double pole breakers.

You plug the injector/transmitter into a plug and then use the detector at the circuit panel. First, you'll want to sweep the detector over every breaker. Notice that the green arrow will light up at several places, especially on any double-pole breakers. This is the "calibration" stage. Now, go ahead and sweep a second time -- this time around, you should only get the arrow on one of the breakers.

I think some of the other reviewers skipped the calibration pass. The instructions aren't entirely clear on this step - it says to do it, but doesn't completely make the "how" clear.

It's easier if you have a friend on the intercom, but you can verify this by turning off the breaker and seeing if the transmitter goes dead. You should also lose your green arrow on the detector.

I wish this device had a battery option so you could try it on dead/tripped breakers.

I'm giving it 4-stars, losing a star because of the lack of instructions.

I haven't used it extensively, but so far the Hi-Tech HTP-6 Circuit Detective Circuit Breaker Finder seems to work pretty well. It has two components, a signal transmitter and a receiver. The two pronged transmitter is designed to be plugged into a standard 120 outlet. The receiver is designed to scan the circuit breakers in an electrical panel or loadcenter, and indicate by an shrill audible signal and flashing green light, which circuit breaker is feeding the load. Following the correct procedures, the system seems to produce fairly accurate though not flawless results.

For these types of tracers, electronic interference can make reading the signal difficult. Certain types of power strips, adapters, and other add-on electrical attachments, can also mess up the transmission of the imparted signal. So for various reason, the Hi-Tech tracer occasionally has some problems nailing down which circuit is the source. I first used a similar tracing device by Pasar, perhaps twenty years ago, and the reliability issues that existed then, still seem to exist today.

The main thing that bothers me about this device is the power switch on receiver. It is located on the side of the unit, and it just takes is a slight touch to turn the receiver on, and begin running the 9 volt battery down. To turn the unit off, you hold down the switch for a few seconds, but a little tap and the receiver turns back on again. Not too smart, as just sticking it in your pocket can easily turn it back on again. A more thoughtful design would have made it more difficult to accidentally switch the device on, like providing a power switch that is out of the way, and locks in the "on" or "off" position.

Hi-Tech HTP-6 Circuit Detective Breaker Finder (seems same as the Reliance)

In limited testing it works so far. Some notes:
- you must do the pre-scan.
- you MUST have the power button on top (I almost gave up until I followed the instructions exactly)
- the power button is easy to bump in storage. I am fabricating a makeshift cover to try to keep that from happening. I've cut about 1/2 inch off the bottom of two of the compartments in a foam egg carton, gluing them inside each other (for strength), cutting a small notch on two sides to hold in place, and then rubber banding it over the switch. We'll see how that works.
- it's helpful to have a light socket adapter to plug the sending unit into to test light sockets, and an alligator clip adapter for testing light switches. They are available in several brands as a kit in the test equipment section at Lowe's and Home Depot for about $10 and and also here on Amazon- see Klein Tools 69411 Circuit Breaker Finder Accessory Kit or search "circuit breaker finder". Or you can buy just the light socket adapter by itself in any hardware store.

I purchased this based on the prior thoughtful reviews (not the emotional ones:-)), and two of the notes above are based on those comments. Thank you!
