Good cheap scale – 1.5" LCD Double Precision Portable Digital Electronic Weighting Hook Scale (45kg Max) Reviews

Pros:
Good product quality. The LCD display is well readable. The blue back light turns automatically when the wight is changed. The measuring precision is acceptable: 5g step for up to 10kg weights. It has self zeroing at start-up. After a stress loaded with about 30kg for a short time and unloaded the display turns back to zero (i.e. no memory/hysteresis effect)
Cons:
The provided batteries are of the cheap Leclanché type cells that are more prone to leak. So if the scale will not be used for long time the batteries must be removed from the device.
Other:
The current consumption in ON mode with back light is 6.2mA and when the backlight turns off the consumption drops to 2.8mA. When the device is in OFF state the current consumption is less than 1uA
Bottomline:
Good cheap scale. Useful at home. You can put it in your pocked and use it as a control scale at the market place.
