Product Details
  • Easy Calibration

    This scale comes factory calibrated and ready to use. Just in case ya need to calibrate it, the JE-500 comes with easy to follow calibration instructions. You'll just need to pick up a 300 gram calibration weight to get the job done.

  • Tare Feature

    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 cover as an expansion tray to weigh your things, or if ya want to get separate weights of multiple items.

  • The Protective Cover Does Double Duty!

    This tiny scale's hard protective cover is great for keeping your scale safe when ya aren't using it...and it doubles as a nice expansion tray, increasing the area ya have to weigh your stuff on. Since it has edges, you can weigh all kinds of things that would normally fall right off the platform.

  • Kill Those Vibrations With VibraKill®

    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.

  • Man, This Thing Is Tiny!

    You won't have to worry about this jewelry scale taking up space. It's just over 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.

  • It Remembers The Last Unit Ya Used

    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 Ohaus Emerald turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when ya turned it off.

  • Auto-Off Feature

    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 JE500 will automatically turn off after a few moments of inactivity, saving battery power and money.


    When ya get this digital scale, ya need to go over to the Ohaus website and register it to receive a one year warranty.

Customer Reviews

Great in right circumstances4 stars

We use this scale while in the field to weigh birds we capture for research. When the scale is flat and still it works perfectly. Probably like most scales of this nature, it will not tare if the surface it's sitting on is not flat or stable. Like on a boat, for example. Indoors, on a desk, perfect. On a moving boat, not so much.

seems good so far4 stars

I haven't used this scale a whole lot yet, but at first pass it seems like a good deal. My only complaint is that zeroing it out if you've got a weighing container on it often "zeros" it to 0.1g. Why? I have no idea. But you turn it off and then on again and it tares correctly.
