Where did you buy these? ordering them from WW postage is very high!

Thanks

Re: DC/AC voltage detector pen

Hi Jack. He is using a 12 volt dc fuse tester old style it has a lead that you clip to earth (the metal) and as soon as you touch a live it glows. The pen style meter will do the same. This is the old I use At least i know how the shelf comes out now! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200403/b958a...

Re: DC/AC voltage detector pen

Hi Jack You can't get DC ones as the technical principle needs a collapsing ac field. Get a pen type multi meter from screwfix for about 15. They do ac/dc and continuity.

DC/AC voltage detector pen

Just trying to get a voltage tester pen
(Instead of a multimeter)
Most seem to be AC
Anyone have one that works for DC, or will the AC ones work?

You'd need to say what year / type, as there's at least three versions.
I thought there were only 2 types?
55-66
67

Need the 55-66 type.
