Hi Tony
I have returned my tester and took the offer of a free replacement. It's good to deal with a reputable company who will put their money on their products in the event of any claim.

I would rather carry rat poison in my lunchbox than a neon screwdriver in my toolkit!
I disagree they are handy for picking scraps of food from between your teeth, scratching that bit of your back you can’t quite reach, untying knots in rope, stirring your tea, using as an awl when you inevitably snap it if your using it as an actual screwdriver, throwing at people to express your disgust (the effect is better if you have already snapped the blade and made it very pointy). Pretty versatile tool in my opinion as long as your not actually planning to use it to test for voltage.

Feel the same about simple socket testers, can only tell you it's switched on, or if there's a N/L polarity swap. They cannot detect a N/E polarity swap, or that there is an elevated earth resistance.
 
I was joking, actually...LOL!
However, the volt stick is a handy second line of defence...
My old multimeter is far better.
 
Have packaged it up, and will take it to my local UPS point tomorrow morning. They said not to include any accessories so I kept the fat tips and the insulated sleeves.
I just hope they turn it around quickly...

Well wouldn't you know it... printed my label, picked up a T90 and my T150 has succumbed to the problem. Having now experienced it myself I can see there is definitely scope for it screwing someone over, so if you've got a tester that fits the recall, stop using it immediately.
 
Thanks for that SparkyChick! I was in 2 minds about sending mine back because it has not been used a lot, however as you have just pointed out, the fault can manifest itself anytime...no point in taking the risk. Anyway, mine's away to the Netherlands, as they say in the movies...

Quick update

Sent off testers with UPS Wed 31st text on Friday acknowledging receipt in Holland.
Mon 5th Nov 2 new testers delivered by UPS.
Service excellent IMO .
 
I have registered it online, but didn't see any offers of an extended warranty like I got for the previous one.
 
I sent my T150 off two and a half weeks ago and haven't received a replacement or any contact from Fluke. Good job I have a spare voltage tester as I expected better service.
