{Summary}

Pocket balance (for a large pocket)

Model: Prac-tech G-202

Since the famous (original) TANITA brand was discontinued last year (2020) we have had many requests for a sturdy high-quality replacement. This one is German-made, beautifully-designed.

Suitable for weighing very lightweight items such as gemstones (weighs down to 0.01g) AND gold (also weighs down to 0.1g) AND silver up to 250g = about 8oz). Weighs up to 200g in 0.01g increments, or up to 250g in 0.1g increments.

{Features}

Backlit display with lots of information, choice of two weighing ranges, pull-off lid doubles as an extra weighing pan, tare, choice of 6 weighing units, auto-power-off (customable), soft zip-pouch with calibration weight, battery (batteries supplied) or USB (cable not supplied).

Switchable to grams (g), ounces (oz), Troy ounces (ozt), pennyweight (dwt), carat (ct), grains (gn).

{Guarantee}

This scale is guaranteed for 1 year.

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.

CALIBRATION

Inaccurate readings can usually be fixed by calibrating the scale, this is something you can do yourself with the 100g weight supplied. THIS IS NOT A FAULT, all electronic measuring devices need calibrating every now and again, see calibrating weighing machines. If you lose the weight, we have replacements. Or we can calibrate it for you, for free, if it is returned within six months of purchase; after that, there is a charge of £5.00 + £6.50 postage (UK).
