Thanks to my various jobs, I spend a lot of time packaging and mailing mostly small items and thick envelopes. There’s nothing more unprofessional in my mind than sending a letter that ends up being postage due- which has led me at times to slapping far too many stamps on things just in case (which just looks sloppy!). For larger packages I already have a bigger scale, but it’s delicate and came with all kinds of warnings not to move it or jar it lest it’s perfect calibration be ruined, never to be right again.
So this Smart Weigh Digital Pro Pocket Scale sounded like just what I needed! First of all, it is so tiny and lightweight compared to other scales I’ve used. Plus it has a sleekly pretty stainless steel design that is easy to keep shiny clean.
It runs on 2 AAA batteries (which nicely come included) and has a blue backlit LCD display. The scale automatically shuts off after 2 minutes to conserve energy, which my forgetful mind is grateful for. It measures up to 500 grams in precise 0.01 increments.
I found the readings to be extremely accurate and the scale itself a breeze to use. I also think it would be handy to use in the kitchen for more precise measuring of ingredients. Basically, this is just a great little item that will make menial tasks faster and easier
