Same price at Amazon and it is eligible for No Rush reward too (think you need to make your order upto £10)
These are dangerous, please purchase with caution. Have a look on YouTube or Google for the reasons, for me is the risk if the bulb failing could cause you to incorrectly thinking a circuit is safe when it is live.
I've decided to buy these, and entrust my life to them
How much do you not want to test live mains supply with a £2 tester?
Omg
I need to take a break. Not sure why all these nasty rolson product deals popping up all of sudden.
I wouldn’t trust these for anything but a bradawl and small terminal screwdriver to change the batteries in your kids toys
These things should be illegal
Incandecent lightbulbs banned
Vacuum cleaners over 900w banned

but a £2 screwdriver that connects you directly to the mains is perfectly fine! Whoda thought?

You are comparing different things there bud.
Can someone on here suggest a tool they would trust?

Maybe, but the point im making is the govt/EU are keen to be seen to save energy by banning inefficient goods, but not bothered about banning tools that can risk your life. Their priorities are in the wrong place.

The CORRECT tool to use would be something like this:
amazon.co.uk/Mar…AWQ
But obviously its overkill (no pun) for the domestic user.

A lower cost alternative thats still safer than a screwdriver is this:
toolstation.com/tis…097

Or this:
toolstation.com/tis…032

Obviously these are basic testers and the quality isn't comparable to a fluke, but it will be adequate for the home DIYer.
If you need one of these to check if the electric supply is live, then you have failed the first "should I be checking this electrical supply" test
