    Don't buy cheap, if your going to insist on going near electrical then spend the money and buy quality. Why would you put your life in the hands of a cheap tester??

    Fluke T5-600 will cost about a ton and last you a life time and will not let you down

    by cheap I meant a fluke T100 or T120 but do like the look of the new megger voltage tester.

    When I say not needed I refering to Measuring single pole voltage and for measuring phase rotation.

    T120 is a good bit of kit!! You do need to follow a procedure when testing L-cpc or it will take out rcd's but I would pay the extra for the 120

    Phase rotation you don't need
