Program into the scale just one price: the price of pure gold (instructions included). Press the 'K' button to select the carat you are weighing (options are 9ct, 10ct, 14ct, 18ct, 22ct or 24ct) and the computer inside the scale works out the value. The display shows the price per gram, the weight and the total value.
High capacity (2000g is just over 64oz), fine resolution (0.1g is just right for gold).
Beautifully presented, slim-line, good-size weighing platform, clear backlit display, carrying pouch.

I can't think of an alternative, this is the only one that calculates the value of the gold.
There is, however, a very simple solution to calculating the value of gold. Use a calculator. We have a claculator with a sticker with all the conversions you need for gold and silver, see calculator with conversions.

Inaccurate readings can usually be fixed by calibrating the scale, this is something you can do yourself if you have a 2Kg 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 six months of purchase; after that, there is a charge of £5.00 + £6.50 postage (UK).
