    You know, the kind where you put it near a wire and it emits a light and sound.
    My Greenlee model crapped out.
    Thanks.

    I have several and i love them. Has never NOT detected voltage but does give some false indications that power is present. This usually happens when a ground is open somewhere or being backfed somewhere on a multi wire circuit.

    I wound up getting a Klein at HD. Seems good. The on/off switch, which crapped out on the Greenlee, is better and it turns itself off.

    I never did like the twist top on the greenlee seemed cheap and one small drop and it was toast.
