Great protection for the price. Well done. I say protection because we rely on testing equipment to keep us informed and safe when troubleshooting. Well built , love the auto ranging, simple continuity checks, bi color leds go red or amber dependent on voltage present. Leads are impressive and have some tip options that come with the meter. I was looking for a meter for my small VETO TP3 diagnostic bag and it fits nicely in the bag as well as provide basic functions needed to start troubleshooting. I am considering this as a gift this Holiday as not everyone is a gearhead or electrical tech, "great Do It Yourself Tool" as it does everything for you. I added a cord minder velcro strap to the removable lead so when I wrap the cord around the handle portion it holds it securely in place and is not sticking up above the bag. I would have printed the Non-Contact Voltage Range to the right side of the LCD so when you leaned the left non-contact side it would remind help you remember the - dash code for the voltage. Appreciate the the quality in the meter believe you have set a standard. April 14, 2012
great features and easy to use the lcd is just the right size for anyone to use Sorry brother in law I am keeping this one for me. April 12, 2012
it is easy to read it's easy to read. feels good in your hand and looks good to. but besides all that easy to use and comes down to it I say buy it. April 9, 2012
Tough! This tester is built like a tank, small and compact, very bright in dark areas, great for quick service calls. Oustanding tool. April 4, 2012
Compact & Easy to use The Amprobe VPC-31 Electrical Tester is a slick compact instrument that is easy to use. Its size and LCD readout make it usable even for the novic who needs to check a circuit. I would highly recommend this product as a valuable addition to your tool bag. March 30, 2012
Good for testing old woring jobs My house was built in 1930 and the wiring was added later but is very old. This is a great tool to use for testing old worn out wiring that needs to be replaced. March 30, 2012
vcp-31 i have used this tester here about 60 times in the last few weeks. i had an electrical problem in my home . i had to brorrow the testerfrom my uncle . he showed and told me how to use it. i will recommend this tester to all of my friends if i am asked for a tester to use on any electrical problems that i am asked about March 29, 2012
This is a great tool and has a lot of really good features This tool has a lot of great features an isvery useful fot testing voltage and continuity of electrical circuits. March 29, 2012
