I disagree with you Fast Orange, IMHO nothing beats the Power Probe, all you have is two hook ups positive and negative side of battery.Then in the palm of your hand you have power and ground by a push of a button and an second ground to power up motors and such, no way a test light and jumper leads can be as fast. I use my PP in place of my test light every time. I would also recommend the Fluke multi meter. Just my 2 cents
