This nifty little instrument combines the functionality of a small LED flashlight with a noncontact AC voltage "sniffer".
It is the model LVD1.

It comes in a plastic body with a handy-dandy swivelling clip (and a smaller pocket clip), and feeds from just one AAA cell.

The voltage detector glows blue when it's near AC voltage, and glows red when it's at the source (nearer than when it glows blue).


To use the Volt Light as a flashlight, just press & release the small rectangular blue button located on the product's body under the large spring-loaded clip - this clip easily swings out of the way for this very purpose.
Press & release it again to turn the unit off.

To use the Volt Light to check for the presence of AC power, just do the exact same thing; only look at the rectangular window just above the switch: it will glow blue when you have the unit 1" to 5" (2.5cm to 12.7cm) away from AC power, and glow red right when you're at the source.

To change the AAA cell when necessary, lift up slightly on the small pocket clip on the unit's side, and pull straight back.
Remove it, and set it aside.

Tip the used AAA cell out of the body, and recycle or dispose of it as you see fit.

Slide a new AAA cell into the body, orienting it so that its button-end (+) positive goes in first.

Place the tailcap/clip assembly back on, and push straight in on it until you hear a fairly loud snap.

Unable to measure current usage due to how the product was constructed.

This is an instrument designed to detect the presence of AC power with a flashlight built in as an extra, not a flashlight designed to be used every day, thrashed, trashed, and abused. It is also a loaner. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the toilet bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannonada (there I go thinking about the TV program "Viva Piņata" again ), or inflict upon it punishments that flashlights may have inflicted upon them. So this section of the Volt Light's web page will seem a bit more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight that was born to be a flashlight and nothing but a flashlight - and that was not a loaner.
