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

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.
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???)
Hopefully someone who can read Chinese can shed some light on what the included spare resistor is for.
This is a nice pocket multimeter to keep handy.
