Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Just received this product the other day. Will state right off the bat , that before you try to turn it on remove the Shrink-wrap type plastic that comes with the pre-installed batteries. I kept pushing the on/off button and was almost ready to give up on it , when I checked the batteries and noticed they were still in this post shipped plastic.
The thing I liked most was the Auto off feature , if you leave the scale on for more than about twenty seconds it automatically turns off. Next thing I liked was the blue illumination of the digital display. The 100 gram calibrating weight makes a nice Table weight for paperwork :) Actually it weighed about 100.4 to 100.3 five different samples.
There is a instruction set on the inside of the Lid which is a helpful reminder in case of forgetting directions. Third thing I like is the size , fits in the inside pocket of any coat , or the inside of desk drawer. I weighed several dollar bills = 1.0 gram to 0.98 consistently sample was ten one dollar bills. Weighed 5 nickels which are supposed to weigh five grams. 4.97 throuh 5.2 out of sample of four nickels. Can zero it with the tare feature if you are using a tray for herbs for energy drinks if you're on a diet so is very useful.
I bought for all purpose , letters , energy drinks , weighing old jewelry and such. Am very happy with it so far.
