Triplett 9601 Sniff-It 2 AC Voltage Detector
Triplett 9601 Sniff-It 2 AC Voltage Detector is rated 4.1667 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sniff-It 2, opinionMy intended use for the Sniff-It 2 was to 'locate' electrical heating wiring hidden under plaster/paint of the ceiling.The chief difficulty became finding a suitable setting for the 'sensitivity' wheel. It seemed to help when I put a "White-Out" spot, near center, of the wheel's travel. Then, at least, small changes could be 'tracked.'Without 'fine tuning,' the device either sounded 'everywhere' or 'not at all.' (heating wire @ 220v, before "IR drop.")

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great PriceThis is definitely an example of "you get what you pay for". Works OK, but sensitivity setting is a little quirky. Overall this is a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price, Great Tool, Safety and UtilityVoltage detector is my most important tool when wiring. Coming from a town without required elecrical inspection, it is a must. I never trust anyone else's wiring. This tool allows me to test for presence of voltage and with the variable sensitivity, I can turn it up and use it to trace wires in a wall. The periodic beep when on also is a great feature to let you know it is on and ready to detect. While it is a little fatter than the Fluke I use also, the features make it worth the extra size. I would definitely purchase again. You can't find a better price, I shopped on the internet. I find Parts Express extremely quick to fill and ship orders. You won't be disappointed with Parts Express or the Sniff-It2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good tool for the moneythe tool is very easy to use.Im impressed with the sensitivity.The one bad thing is that the volume should be adjustable. I use the tool almost on a daily basis and Its the best tool of its kind that ive ever used. The ability to connect it to a normal outlet for power or a longer lasting battery would be nice. with daily use the battery last about a month.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful toolUnit has very good sensitivity that is easily adjusted. Volume is adequate but not adjustable. Would be nice to have a more standard battery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works with low voltage ac control circuitsworks well, just be sure to set sensitivity by probing a known hot circuit of similar voltage, or you may get false positives and negatives.this is the one you want for low voltage ac.
