Is it possible to use one of these to find a breaker that supplies florescent fixtures.That is from the bulb contacts without opening up that fixtures cover or finding the junction box and tapping into the 110.

I’m guessing the light is out? Otherwise a couple cell phones and a helper might be easier for that. Many of these products are thrown off by fluorescents, so I’m not sure that’s a good application. Certainly the ones that require a two/three prong outlet won’t work for what you need.

I have to ask – did you actually test all of these units or just read the specs on them? Your verdict on all of them was about 7 or 8 out of 10. If you had tested each unit I would have expected that there would be a bit more detailed info regarding the actual performance.
Any insight, such as top 3 units of the ones listed (and why), and any to avoid?
