A small hi-pot tester is invaluable for checking most suppressors. You can
easily check the voltage that they are supposed to break down at. Polyphaser
makes/used to make a unit called FIST for this purpose. It is a small
automatic hi-pot tester that goes to around 2kv.
With the ICE units I would guess that you would have to disconnect the coil
in them first.
