You like the size, you like the specification (0.1g / 1000g) but you still think you might break it, you want something you could just about sit on without it coming to any harm, see tuff-weigh.

You like the idea, but you could get by with something (of the same specification, 0.1g / 1000g) but smaller and cheaper, see MV-1000.

About this size (or a bit smaller) is good, but it needs to weigh down to 0.01g not just 0.1g, see slatescale.


This scale is guaranteed for 3 years.

The guarantee excludes:

- flat batteries. New batteries will be charged at £5.00 plus £6.50 for return postage (UK).

- if you lose the battery compartment cover (sorry, we don't have spares)

The guarantee is invalid if there is:

- obvious damage, e.g. dents, holes, cracked casing, weighing platform loose.

- signs of 'foreign material'. That's anything that should not be there, e.g. residues of herbs, chemicals, spilt tea, corrosion from leaking batteries.


Inaccurate readings can usually be fixed by calibrating the scale, this is something you can do yourself if you have a 500g calibration weight. THIS IS NOT A FAULT, all electronic measuring devices need calibrating every now and again, see calibrating weighing machines. We can calibrate it for you, for free, if it is returned within three months of purchase; after that, there is a charge of £5.00 + £6.50 postage (UK).
