Good meter, but I wish I could read Chinese – Auto Range Digital Multimeter Reviews

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

Pros:
The leads store in the case and the cover protects the display when closed. I found the accuracy to be better than the previous reviewer. The auto off function will help with battery longevity and the use of common AAA batteries is a plus.
Cons:
The instructions are in Chinese, which is ok since I know how to use a multimeter. HOWEVER, there looks to be an addendum to the manual included along with a spare resistor... I have no clue what I'm supposed to do with this resistor (field modify the meter???)
Other:
Hopefully someone who can read Chinese can shed some light on what the included spare resistor is for.
Bottomline:
This is a nice pocket multimeter to keep handy.
