Question about Klein Tools :Voltage Tester Holder
What kind of testers can I found on the market?
The simplest and least expensive tester is the neon 2-wire 0-500 volt tester. Put one of the leads on a ground reference (box screws, neutral side of a plug, neutral or white wire, etc.) and the other lead on the hot wire (hot side of a plug, black or red wire, etc.) If the neon light glows, then you have voltage at the outlet, as is the case here. Another handy device to have around is the plug tester. Just plug this device into a receptacle, and it will not only tell you if there is voltage present, but also if it is wired correctly (or not!). Just follow the codes on the tester to determine the situation. The type of meter that most electricians will use is the digital multi-meter. These come in various brand names, price ranges and quality, and the old adage, "you get what you pay for" is the best advice to follow here.
