Little Voltage/Continuity Tester, Very Engrish! – 0.7" LCD AC/DC Voltage Tester Screw Driver with Blue Backlit (12V~250V) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Got a few of these tools to test stuff with at work, we maintain some 208V AC and battery backup DC systems. Pros: It does do continuity testing, and dc and high voltage estimating. But was able to verify it did work, and can detect current nearby.
Cons:
Not very accurate, and the instructions while translated are very very bad (think engrish.com bad). (thing has two buttons/contacts that are used for various uses, but you get different results depending on which one is used.) manual just says "direct key", and has a little teeny drawing.
Other:
Bottomline:
I will probably be able ot use this pretty often ive had many similar tools in the past. the bad translation of the instructions might be dangerous for people who don't know how to operate it or know how its misuse may be unsafe.
