The perfect addition to your shooting, jewelry, gun smithing, and other hobby or professional equipment, this electronic balance is made with a high quality strain gauge load cell system that makes it accurate in full capacity range. The variety of measuring modes makes it ideal for a variety of uses (e.g., loose diamonds & gemstones, coins, gold nuggets, mini bars/ingots & other bullion; black powder & gun powder for reloading ammunition; small beads, gold/silver/platinum ring settings & other scrap jewelry or jewellery-making supplies; rough/raw gems; rocks; meteorites/tektites; small fossils and other specimen; milligrams of powdered medicine or herbal/vitamin/dietary supplement...so much more). Handsome gift box allows for pro-quality presentation and simple self-storage. High density ABS housing and metal support makes it very durable. Large, attractive, high-contrast, blue LCD back light display makes the readouts very easy & clear to read. The TARE feature allows you to reset the balance to 0.00 units while in use; ideal when weighing powders, flakes, liquids & oils. The clear plastic flip-open lid protects the scale's stainless steel weighing platform when not in use, and doubles as a wind shield, to protect the measurement from being influenced by winds or even a breath (that's right, it's so accurate that it will pick up on you're breathing if you're standing close enough!). Scale measures 4" (Depth) x 3.5" (W) x 1" (H) (inches).
