Max 40g, not 200 – Pocket Flip-Open Digital Precision Scale (200g Max / 0.01g Step) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Appears to be OK built for the price and promised weight range. Can be calibrated in 5g steps. Nice form factor. The price is OK given it could stand up the the promised maximum weight.
Cons:
Does not measure more than just above 40g. It is linear up to 40, and highly un-linear from 40 to 44 where it enters overload. The price is not OK because of the limited (and erroneous max. weight).
Other:
Something is very wrong withe the manufacturer's quality control. Maybe they put in a wrong weight cell?
Bottomline:
Don't buy if you expect to measure more than just a few grams.
