This scale is a great value for the .01 gram precision it offers. Once calibrated it is quite sensitive and accurate. Mine came quite far from calibrated, but based on the other reviews here it appears this is only a fluke. The scale is lightweight and very portable, being roughly the same size as a Nintendo DS Lite. Build quality is good; it looks like it will last a long time if used properly and carefully. Comes with two AAA batteries and a space for storing a pair of extras. Very nice scale for the price.

One hint about calibration: if you forget to buy the 100g calibration weight, you can simply use 20 U.S. nickels, as each nickel is exactly 5g.

I've had this scale for a couple years, and I'm very happy with it. It's accurate, repeatable +/- 0.02 grams on different days, and has held up through moderate handling (nothing abusive, but stuff that I'd never put my lab scale through).

It uses what I call a "floating zero". This is good and bad... When within 0.03 grams of zero and steady, it displays 0.00 and slowly adjusts its zero. If you slowly add 0.01 grams at a time, you can get it to drift way off, and when you eventually take off all the weights at once, it'll display -0.20 grams or whatever their weight was. The good is that the scale, despite its inexpensive mechanism, keeps very good zero calibration between measurements. The downside is that it makes small measurements difficult. If you want to weigh out 0.15 grams of powder, you can't just tare your weigh paper and then gradually pour it on - the zero will drift unless you add the first 0.05 grams quickly enough. Instead, you can NOT tare it, and manually subtract the weigh paper.

This feature is not a problem at all unless you're weighing very small (less than 0.1 grams) items on a regular basis. I think this is an acceptable compromise for a pocket scale of this precision at this price (and it's practically standard until you get to much more expensive equipment), so I am not marking any points off.

I read the negative review regarding the accuracy not being good enough for reloading use. I use this scale and the 0.2 grain error is no problem. Let me explain how I use this and this method should be used with any scale. With something as serious as measuring gunpowder into cartridges, I never trust any scale so I verify the measurement in this way. Let's say I need 6 grains of powder. I set the powder measure up to throw a single 6 grain charge as measured with this scale. That could actually be 5.8 to 6.2 grains which is unacceptable. I then throw ten charges and measure that. I should read around 60 grains but now the error range is 59.8 to 60.2 or 5.98 to 6.02 per single charge. I make slight adjustments to the powder measure device until 10 charges is equal to 60 grains. I am now within .02 grains per charge which is highly acceptable. The scale has performed flawlessly for me and I use it exclusively instead of my RCBS analog scale. I have also made comparison measurements with this and the RCBS with no appreciable difference between the scales. When used properly, the limitations of this ( or any) scale can be improved simply by utilizing a different method. Overall, this is a great deal for the price.

The scale seems to be accurate (+/- .01) and is very sensitive, so it is effective in its primary function. Because of possible effects from humidity, inventorying, shipping, it's definitely possible that it will need to be calibrated which requires a 100gram weight; that is to be expected. But I docked it 2 stars in this review because of several annoyances. First, it has a 60-second automatic shut-off, regardless of battery strength. If you are weighing a lightweight granular material (e.g., ground spices or herbs), it is easy for the scale to turn itself off before you are finished. Worse yet (second gripe), when you turn it back on to resume the weighing, the scale assumes it is starting at zero and therefore registers a negative reading for the material still on it, requiring that material to be removed altogether beforehand so that the scale is turned on with nothing on it. And third, you need to take care that the material be centered on the scale to get an accurate and consistent reading, which again is somewhat difficult with herbs and spices or similar. Bottom line, it gets the job done but is not the easiest to use with some applications.

I purchased this device so that I could measure the minerals that I add into 'pure' water. The idea is that my local tap water is toxic to the fish in my 55 gallon aquarium, so I use reverse osmosis water. RO water has no minerals, fish need some, so I enjoy being able to measure out mineral additives to a .01 gram resolution.

I did test this with a hand full of coins (and the US Mint weight chart) and all came in within .04 grams (coins vary).

I did buy the 100g calibration weight. As it turned out, my device was calibrated 99.99% out of the box. Nothing wrong with that.

This is an ideal scale for coin collectors, jewelry or any need to weigh small items under 100 grams. I used to work in an engineering lab this has a real nice instrument grade feel it is not a toy. At reasonable price you can weigh to 0.01 gram other pocket scales only weigh to 0.1 gram. Has Gram, OZ, Carat, Grain and tare weight modes very easy to use and portable. Don't forget to order the 100 gram calibration weight also. You will not regret this purchase.
