Excellent Value – 1.5" LCD Double Precision Portable Digital Electronic Weighting Hook Scale (45kg Max) Reviews

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

Pros:
Compact - seems good quality build. Weight reading display locks when measurement is stabilised, so you don't need to hold the scale up high to see the reading. Seems accurate. I checked with a 5 kg certified scale weight and the reading was 5.020 kg (0.4 percent error). The weighing hook folds away neatly into a recess in the body when not in use. Back lighting makes reading easy to see (goes out after a few seconds to conserve battery)
Cons:
None that I can think of.
Other:
Also has feature which I don't recall being featured on the web site - has a built-in thermometer. Just press and hold the "units" button for a couple of seconds and the readout shows the current temperature in degrees celsius.
Bottomline:
Very good value. It is hard to understand how such an item can be sold so cheaply at a profit. Would make a useful present for any friends who travel, or need a scale for weighing fish catches for example.
