The non-contact pen types do exactly what you want. The top of the pen is a flat tip that you can insert in to the hot side of the outlet (the short one). They usually have a flashing red light and audio alarms.
I used mine this week and the audio alarm was loud enough to hear across the basement while I was trying to find the correct breaker.
