Thanks to the U-2's built in USB port and included USB cable, you can send your weight readings straight to the "weight field" of all sorts of websites and shipping software. Just download the FREE software to get started. Just below is a list of Websites and software the U2 will work with:UPS WebsiteUPS WorldShip® Shipping SoftwareFedEx WebsiteFedEx Ship Manager® Shipping SoftwareDHL WebsiteDHL EasyShip® Shipping SoftwareeBay / PayPal "Print Shipping Label" pagesUSPS Website-----------------Please note that the U2 isn't able to enter the weight in any application that uses a pull-down field for the weight field, including Stamps.com, Shipworks, and Endicia Dazzle.Also note that the U2's software is not Mac compatible.
You can power this scale with your computer using the included USB cable, or, if ya purchase the optional AC adapter, you can plug it into a wall outlet for power. You can even power the U2 with six AA batteries if ya want.
The U2 works great as a stand-alone shipping scale, if ya don't need all that fancy computer data transfer stuff. Just plug it in and start weighing, the Ultra U-2 still has more features than a lot of other shippers ya see around, even without using the USB output.
This digital shipping scale has a fancy "dual mode display" that actually tells ya the weight of what you're weighing in two different units of measurement (like pounds and kilograms, for instance). Just pick the two units ya want to use, and weigh your items. The weight display will show readings for both units at once...great for many different weighing applications.
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 Technolgy 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.
If you've ever had a tough time seeing the weights on your scale's display because of a large package, (or anything else that might cover your weight display) you'll know what a great feature this is. My Weigh designed this shipping and postal scale with a backlit weight display that pulls away from the scale so ya can see your weights even with a BIG package on the scale...the display's cord reaches over three feet long! When ya don't need the remote readout, just pop the display back into place on the front of the scale.
With this cool feature you can weigh your item, press the "HOLD" key, and remove your items from the scale. After you take your item off the scale, the weight reading will remain on the display. This can come in handy for larger packages...you can even switch through the different modes and see what your items weigh in each unit.
The tare button on the front of this digital 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 included attachment pieces for weighing your things, or if ya want to get separate weights of multiple items.
Need a shipping scale? Postal scale? The UltraShip has got ya covered. To get the most accurate weight readings of items both small and large, My Weigh designed this shipping scale with dual resolutions. Why? Small items, like letters and envelopes need more accurate weight readings since you pay by the ounce to mail them...Larger items, packages and boxes, require a higher capacity and are usually rounded up to figure shipping costs. This postal scale's design will give you the accurate weight readings you need at a very affordable price.
If you've ever had your scale turn off on ya in the middle of important measurements, you'll realize what a blessing this feature is. You can program the U2 to turn off automatically, or to stay on until you turn it off yourself.
If your application needs weights in the same unit of measurement, (like ounces for instance), it can be a real pain if your scale always turns on ready to weigh in grams. It's a good thing the My Weigh Ultra Ship turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when ya turned it off.
If there's ever a problem with this scale, just send it to My Weigh's warranty center in Phoenix, Arizona. They'll fix or replace your scale, and send it on its way back to ya within two working days.
