First thing to do....
Throw away the voltage tester.

Why do they still sell these things??

As to the screwdrivers themselves, the heads don't look particularly high quality, and a number of the reviews are definitely suspect (far too wordy). I'd be inclined to pay a few quid extra and go for a set of Wera (or similar) branded units

Tedious.

What is the failure rate for these screwdrivers? Very low, and 230V is hardly going to kill you anyway.

If you are an electrician using these every day but for the average DIYer using these occasionally the risk is negligible.

I used to work with commercial electrics all the time where you had to work live. Occasionally got 230V shocks. Didn't kill me.

230V can definitely kill you.

True, but even with typical skin resistance, 240V gives plenty of current flow. Also, as it's ac, that's even worse and 50Hz is perfect for causing ventricular fibrillation Don't believe that mains voltage won't kill you. There are plenty of people that can't testify ihow dangerous it is.
