Though it looks nice when it lights up it really doesn't make any difference as to polarity.

Reason,excuse,alibi for the better half. Call it what you will:D
I think we can all agree tool buying just happens naturally, like the changing of the seasons....
I do some communication work for people and it is a rather handy device. And the homeowners get a kick out of it as well.

Women have their clothing and shoes, we've got our tools. :p Oh wait, it's raining today - gotta go buy a tool. Supposed to be sunny tomorrow, will have to buy a tool for that too. :D

Does that phone jack checker come with different colored lights? Say red and green for Christmas, orange for Halloween, Pink for Easter and Valantine's Day ... (just trying to keep on topic ... ):p

Well, you could say that I suppose.
LED Colors
Green = Line OK
Red = Reversed Polarity
Amber = AC Voltage Present
Not Lit = Dead Line
Excuse me for I have to get back to E-bay and check out a couple of tool bids in progress.....
