Almost every day and every course we get asked so what PAT tester is the best?

This is a very difficult question to answer as it depends on:

  • How many items do you need to test?
  • Do you test primarily 110V or 230V?
  • Where will you be testing?
  • What is your budget?

There are as many suitability questions as there are PAT testers. So as usual there is no straight answer to which one is the best, we will always consult with you to help you pick the most suitable.

If you look around our site, you may notice we don’t sell every single type of PAT tester, the reason for this is some of them are quite frankly lacking and for the same amount of money (or less) you can get a better one.

We only sell the type of PAT tester we can recommend, so if you want some advice, please give us a call.

As a last thought, please don’t buy a PAT tester that doesn’t produce readings, these in my personal opinion are useless!
