I lost my Volt Con Elete so I looking for a replacement. I liked it because it had a non contact tester, continuity, and a shaker. But the thing was a bit longer then the rest and kept falling out of my tool pouch. I would like one that is not tricked so easy by ghost voltages. Small is good. Any sugestions?

I second the Knopp. I hated the Volcon Elite, it's vibrating on ghost current made me look like an idiot while troubleshooting(Well more of an idiot than I normally look like).


I'm not really as dumb as I look.
