Usage and Testing
The first thing I did was put a battery in and make sure it powered on, and yes it did!
This tester can test rj45, rj11 and USB cables so that’s what I did, I tested them and had some fun with it as well.
For USB testing you can’t test USB extension cables which makes no sense to me as they’re probably the most popular. You can test USB A to USB B cables which are common for printers and some USB enclosures and then you can test male to male USB cables as well. I grabbed a USB A to USB B cable to test and it all looks good to me. I tested it with just the main unit and then with the remote as well.
Then I grabbed a regular phone cable and for this I needed to use the adapters. The adapters just clip in place but they really don’t stay in place very well at all.
So here’s the phone cable being tested, and all looks good:
I did run into a problem testing the phone wire though, it does not work using the remote.
Testing an Ethernet cable is the same, just plug it in without the adapters.
I tested the Ethernet cable on the main unit and with the remote and all worked as it should.
