    They are good... :thumb:

    I bought a couple of them a few years ago...

    And then they were more than twice that price.. :Sad:

    already did on RVOC when the same thread was started. :thumb:

    got one of the Aldi testers in a previous weekly special.

    Probably just mine but I have to wiggle it about to get lights on, when I use it at all.


    Got a far better one plugged in all the time in an unused socket.

    Only there to confirm an earth exists...reversed polarity is not an issue in my view....after all, it's reversed 50% of the time anyway.

    Reversed polarity is a safety issue!! It's worth being able to test for it.

    Keep mine plugged into spare socket all the time; quick easy check that the EHU hasn't tripped too.
