Comments about GB ELECTRICAL Sperry® Adjustable Non-Contact Voltage Detector (VD6505):

This is a great easy to use tool when troubleshooting electrical AC circuits. The adjustable rheostat is a must because you can tweak the sensitivity depending on the voltage, equipment or location your testing.

For example when checking standard 120 volt receptacle outlets, you can adjust it to only light up/beep when you check the "hot" ungrounded conductor side but when you move it to the "neutral" grounded conductor side it remains off. Also if you're trying to trace out a "hot" or switched conductor in an electrical box with other energized conductors in close proximity, you can adjust the sensitivity way down to light/beep only on the circuit you're working. A non-adjustable unit normally alarms due to the EMF given off by the other conductors, so discriminating which wire is actually energized is difficult at best.

The only draw back is the rotating adjustable rheostat knob is easily moved if stored in your tool bag or pouch, requiring you to reset it every time. However I found if you adjust it to your needs then place small white marks on the rheostat and the body of the tester, this will save you some time by not having to readjust it. Just line up the two white marks and you're ready to go.

Stay away from the non-adjustable ones because the sensitivity is prefixed for better or for worst.
