Default Re: Work lamp

The only thing you can usefully do with a neon tester (screwdriver type) is put it in the bin. They're useless for testing and, if faulty, could kill you.

Use either a proper two-probe tester or a non-contact voltage detector (and the latter is not suitable for proving circuit isolation or safe-to-work condition)
