May I ask what tests the unit actually performs and the readings it provides?

Also, has anyone opened one up to see what's inside?

I am always dubious about small, lightweight battery testers being anything more than a simple voltmeter.

Indeed to test a battery it needs to be put under load to show all the cells are working correctly. A simple volt meter will not do this.

Something like this (I have seen them.cheaper on ebay etc). This type would give live reporting of the voltage on the move. (Just a thought - I haven't used one, I use a volt meter and also have a lidl led basic tester too)
