Good Voltage Detector,
This review is from: Klein Tools NCVT-1 Non Contact Voltage Tester (Tools & Home Improvement)
I was just reading the opinions of others, and alot of people are complaining about how it beeps no matter what. But being an electrian i've used this and one thing people need to realize is all of these detectors beep when you bump them of rub them against your hair of skin. They work by reading the magnetic force coming off the conductor. what you do, so they are extremely sensitive.
Just make sure you test it on a known voltage and then hold it on the conductor that you want to test. As long as you don't bump it all over the conductor it will work. This meter works well and i'd buy it again. The only problem would be that the nose of this tester breaks off if you don't take care of it. Thanks
