If you look at the offerings on the above link, you'll see ONLY one unit:
CP117 AutoTrack Circuit Tracer says it's rated for 90-400 VAC.  None of
the other units say that.  I was looking for electrical specifications of the
telephone toners, and couldn't find any, but I'm pretty sure they are NOT
rated of use with a live 120V circuit.
