Maybe they could splash out 19 quid for one of these

Not being a professional, I would be quite happy to quite happy to splash out £5.89 on one of these

Although these kinds of devices work well enough to detect a blown bulb they have limitations.

They normally do not check the fridge or ATC feeds and can be fooled by a corroded connection which will pass enough current to light up the display LED, but not enough current to work the bulbs themselves.

I have one, not from that supplier, and I agree the description doesn't agree with the title or the first photo. Mine has the adapter shown in 9th row down that makes it plug into a 13-pin setup.
