OK I don't speak Chinese .. – Mains AC/DC LCD Voltage Tester Screw Driver (12V~220V) Reviews

Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Cheap
Cons:
can't tell what the heck the buttons/sensors on it are for
Other:
Bottomline:
OK it got here - looks OK but has Chinese writing on it by the buttons. You need to touch one of the buttons at the top for it to show a reading BUT which one does what? I jammed the metal end into the eletric plug socket (kids don't try this at home) and nothing happened. Then I discovered you need to touch one of the buttons. Now one of them shows 220v (although we go up to 240v here in the UK) and pressing the other button shows 110 volts?? why? I know the U.S. use 110v for mains supply but why was this showing 110v ?
I suppose if I knew what the buttons said I might understand better. Are there any people here who know what they're on about? and can tell us what and how to use it?
