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.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By J. M. Biggs on November 6, 2006
I purchased this model circuit detective in Nov.'05. I have yet to see it find a correct circuit after following the directions to the letter. I recently returned it to the company (Hi-Tech), asking for a replacment under the "lifetime warranty" only to have them return the same unit to me stating that there was nothing wrong with it. I guess I believed the hype about the different technology and it cost me $30+. My recommendation is to save your money and find a helper to hollar when the power goes off for a particular circuit as you flip the breakers in the basement.

This little device allows you to trace electrical circuits from the box to the plug, simply turn it on, plug one end it, it's pretty clear which end then aim the other unit at the circuit board and you can tell which breaker is used for the plugin.
