5.0" x 3.3" VibraKill® Pad
2 CR2032 Batteries
100 Gram Calibration Weight
Push the switch on the side of the scale and stand back...watch as the PalmScale's Hydro-Hinged cover slowly opens up for weighing. You'll be saying OooooEeeee when you see this scale in action.
This mini scale has a fancy, blue, backlit display to help ya see your weight readings, even in dim lighting. The best part is, you can choose to have the backlight on or off while you're weighing. So, if you're running low on battery power, you can weigh your things with the backlight off to save batteries, and money.
This digital pocket scale has a durable stainless steel weighing platform to make cleanup a breeze. Unlike gold or silver, stainless steel doesn't scratch easily and keeps its shine without rusting or tarnishing.
The PalmScale 5 comes with great accessories. Use the VibraKill® Pad under this mini scale to keep vibrations from messing up your weight readings, and the calibration weight to keep it nice and accurate. If you're looking to use the Palm as a diamond scale or carat scale, the expansion bowl and expansion tray are perfect for weighing those teeny tiny jewelry pieces, and the included tweezers and scoop make picking up those pieces easy. You even get batteries and a protective pouch to keep your scale nice and safe when ya aren't using it.
This pocket scale comes factory calibrated and ready to use. Just in case ya need to calibrate it, the Palm Scale comes with easy to follow calibration instructions. Just use the included 100 gram calibration weight to get the job done.
If ya put too much weight, (more than the capacity of the scale) on any scale it can cause permanent damage. Unfortunately, most scales warn ya of an overload after it's too late. Luckily this digital scale comes with WeighMeter Technology to tell ya when you're coming close to the maximum capacity. This will save ya from overloading your scale and damaging it beyond repair.
The tare button on the front of this digital jewelry scale can be pressed to "zero out" the weight on the scale. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of the items you're adding. This sure is useful when ya want to use the cover as an expansion tray to weigh your things, or if ya want to get separate weights of multiple items.
Did ya know that vibrations can cause a scale's reading to bounce around from one weight to another? Included with this mini scale is a VibraKill® Pad to keep vibrations, (caused by everyday items like, your fridge, nearby music, your washing machine, etc...) from messing up your weighing.
You won't have to worry about this scale taking up space. It's just under five inches long, and less than an inch thick! You can take this scale pretty much anywhere ya want...stick it in a pack, purse, or in your shirt pocket.
If ya have ever had the batteries in something run out because you forgot to turn it off, you'll realize what a blessing this feature is. The PalmScale 500 will automatically turn off after a few moments of inactivity, saving battery power and money.
If ya have a problem with this scale, just send it to MyWeigh's warranty center in Phoenix, Arizona. They'll fix or replace your scale and send it on its way back to ya within a week of receiving it. You should expect your replacement to arrive in about two to three weeks from the day you send the original off. Keep in mind that sometimes MyWeigh runs out of stock, which can cause a delay in the warranty replacement process.
I bought this to replace a stolen Palmscale 8 advanced and was quite disappointed. Even though the one I received was defective, (for which I returned it) I would not have been as happy. I will be ordering another Palmscale 8 Advance 800 to replace this one.
I'd recommend spending a little more ($6), and get the Palmscale 8 Advance 800. It's a far better scale for not much more.
I've had this scale for years now without EVER having a problem. Not only does it almost never need to be calibrated, but the batteries last for a year or so with regular use. A superb product without a doubt, I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking for a portable, reliable scale at a relatively modest price
