        Of course you can, particularly if they belong to you.  Question is how
long the insulation will last, not how much voltage will it take on a
"hi pot" test.  The ones I have looked at lately are pretty cheap
looking devices, and it's hard to believe they were designed with any
safety margin for the insulation.
