Cheap scales weights more or less – Portable Digital Pocket Scale - 500g/0.1g (2*AAA) Reviews

Pros:
This portable scales is for very good price. Came undamaged and in plastic case, which is covering the portable digital pocket scales. You can turn on/off the light indicator. Batteries are included in the packing. Display and plastic case was covered with plastic foil to protect against scratches.
Cons:
It does not do its work perfectly. It took some time, until you get the final value. Sometimes the same 5g weight has 5.1g, sometimes 4.9g. So the device is not very precise. You have to be very patient to get some "average" result to make sure, you have correct values. I think this item is little bit unreliable. The deviation varies around +- 0.2g which is not very well
Other:
If you plan to weight something which is not really cheap, this tool would be ideal. It does its work, but do not try to weight something where you need to be precise for more than 0.2g. Use other device which can be bought here.
Bottomline:
If you want it, buy it. But weight carefully. This device is reliable with deviance about 0.2g, so consider it while buying.
