We got all the major HVAC tool players responding here except Fluke.
Anybody got a clue on that?

Milwaukee above all else makes a small, about the size of a pocket digital thermometer, lighted (and very brightly lighted too) ncv voltage tester that sells at The Home Depot for around $20. 50 - 1000 volts ac so no real low (24 volt) voltage detectability though.

I used it yesterday on an electrical re-wire of an old 1923 three story home with get this, a *BASEMENT here in Houston. First basement I've ever heard of let alone been in in the 10 years in either trade down here.
*sub floor mechanical room with a Bryant Evolution system that I was much more interested in versus the 14-3 wire I was pulling.

Gimmicky is a good word, I thought that about the Amprobe when I first heard of them having swivel heads, but I too can see the usefullness in it having had to check voltage and amps from a hard to see angle, all breaking my neck trying to see. I just feel like one wrong move and I'll snap the head clean off from the meter.

In some parts of the world the natural ambient temperature gets that low!
