Klein Tools NCVT-2 Dual Range Non-Contact Voltage Tester
While I bought this tester for another project last week (it worked great for that one), a voice in my head told me to double check and verify no live wires with my new tester. The darn kept beeping when I put the tester to my bathrom light. I was sure it was broken when I put it to the electrical outlet that my bathroom light was connected to, as well as the bathroom light itself. Hesitant, I went and shut off a few more breakers for adjacent rooms, doing them one at a time, and sure enough, my tester went quiet when I shut off 2 more breakers. So 3 breakers were connected or had wires with my bathroom light!!!! This tester was a life saver and no doubt saved me a trip to ER.
I have an older 1950s ranch home. Buy this. Be sure of your work. It will be in my toolbox always! Very easy to use. Plus made in USA.
Months ago a ceiling fan/light had quit working; this is one that isn't used often but with the hot weather lately (and no AC), I'm ready for a useable fixture. I couldn't figure out which breaker to turn off using my usual tool (with socket/plug inserts and detector "pen" that runs along breakers to signal which is correct). I was afraid it was the wiring in the ceiling, which would not be pretty to get to. I turned the whole house breaker off to remove the old fan/light, and it seemed as if that least one wire might have become unattached, but I couldn't be for certain (I don't know much about electrical and it makes me nervous, so I err on the side of super caution). Soooo, I did a couple of minutes research, ordered this Klein tool based on how intuitive it was and ease of the signals it gave.
When the tool arrived a couple of days ago, I opened it up, put the directions to the side (hey, I work two jobs so don't get much sleep - I just wanted to see if it was easy), turned it on (batteries included), and found that it is easy to use and understand for my purpose. I'm happy to report the ceiling wiring is fine - or at least has power running thru when the switch is flipped (whew!). When I am ready to put up the new fan/light, I will read the directions just to make sure I don't miss something (remember, I'm a novice) and the Klein tool will be in use to make sure the wires are dead (and I will write down which breaker it is).
Much to my surprise, the thing works really well! It has 2 sensitivity levels. On low voltage sensitivity, it can detect 24VAC transformer voltage on my doorbell through the wire. I was curious of it would pass that test, and it did. On High voltage, it did not detect 24VAC, but not expect to do so. On high voltage, i.e. normal 110 VAC, it easily detected hot circuits in receptacle without removal, and detected GCFI hot disconnected and connected. On the low voltage setting, on a GCFI, if you stick the end into the hot side, it detects voltage with either the GCFI on or off, on high voltage, it only detected when the GCFI is on. Very cool.
I tired it on a lamp wire, just to see if it would detect 110 VAC through a lamp wire... it does. Cool.
This is much more convenient than a test light or voltmeter. For any normal electrical work, not diagnostic where voltmeters and amp clamps are required, this will be very useful to check for voltage before working on any circuit.
Product is excellent, however instructions are awful. A fan fold of fine print attempting too many languages and poorly written. I'm an electrical engineer and had difficulty. Fail.
