Much better than the price suggests – Portable Hanging Electronic Hook Scale (20KG Max / 10g Resolution) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Small enough for most pockets, good storage idea for hook, weighing is accurate to 10 gr. (well, at least the values correspond with those from my other scales).
The thermometer seems to work alright, just tested it once, don't really need it.
Cons:
Do we need a con? Yes, maybe the battery cover. It slides too easy. I use a strip of textile tape attached to the inside of the cover. The tiny hook will then engage better. Don't use too much tape, or the hook will break.
Other:
Take it with you if you're shopping for stuff with certain weight - bike parts, for instance, tend to be heavier in reality than on paper.
Bottomline:
No need to spend more on a hanging scale - buy it if you need one.
This thing beats those expensive specialty fishing scales.
