Top Customer Reviews
The batteries that came with it (2xAAA) were fully charged and powered up the scale right out of the box. Auto zero'ing occurs shortly after power up and its ready to go. The Tare function to zero the scale with an empty container on it takes one push of the button. In order to calibrate the scale (if that is ever needed) you will need a 500 Gram calibration weight sold separately on Amazon. As long as you don't drop or abuse this unit it probably won't need calibrating. The backlit digital display is very bright and very easy to read. It does come with a 5 Year Warranty too so hang onto your paperwork if needed. But again, for this price a Big Mac meal costs more.
Accuracy: I have a second scale for weighing ammunition components like shotgun lead pellets and gun powder. I weighed out exactly one ounce, 437.5 grains, of lead pellets on the reloading scale and then weighed that amount on the Fast Weigh. The result was 1.005 ounce so accuracy was within 5/1000th of an ounce. Close enough for anything I'll use it for. The weigh units are ounces, troy ounces, pennyweights and grams. The DWT pennyweight unit will come in handy this summer weighing gold nuggets and gold dust at our mining claims. All in all I'm satisfied and recommend this scale. And I may buy the 1000 gram scale later for weighing nuggets over one pound. :-)
- Small enough to fit in a shirt pocket.
- Fairly stable, displays both grams/oz.
- The cover acts as a small tray
- Like others, the batts were dead on arrival
- I have an accurate scale at home, so was able to make up a 500g mass to check calibration(which was pretty close out of the box), but it could be an issue if you had to buy a calibration weight.
While some find the size inconvenient, I use a tall water glass that fits the platform to weigh food. The glass, or whatever you use for a container can be somewhat larger than the platform as the display area is recessed below the platform. As such, I find the small size is more of an advantage than a negative.
For a few bucks, it's a deal, and pretty much does what it is supposed to.
Any who, calibration of this may get to be a problem since it is set for auto calibration only with a 500 Gram benchmark weight. I have some test weights but the largest I have is only 25 grams. But it does pass the nickle test so as long as you don't want to use it for something very precise like I was going to use it. And that's to weight out gun powder for making my own reloads. For the price on it I should have figured it would be about this accurate.
For things like Weight Watchers, or as my dad and I called it when mom went to them "Fat lookers" these scales should replace the cheap spring type scale that my mother always had to use.
As for using this for mail, I don't know. Small packages it should work for those with no problem. Light weight letters, I doubt it. But still for the price, you cant beat these unless you need fractions of a gram to be accurately. For that I suggest a nice set of balance beams scales. I have a nice set from Harbor Freight. They are made of brass and supposed to be something of a novelty, but they work great. And are still a very cool novelty.
Cons: Lid fits loosely (not a big deal), Sometimes doesn't immediately measure accurately (need to tap it sometimes to reset; minor frustration)
Its 1/10th (0.1) gram accuracy is the big disadvantage, but I won't list it as a con because the product is as advertised. Even if you're only measuring things to 0.1g, an extra significant figure really helps. In summary: this tool should be used for accurately measuring objects to **1 gram** as any science-educated person should know.
