Bright Backlit Display This digital pocket scale has a fancy, blue, backlit display to help ya see your weight readings, even in dim lighting.

Man, This Thing Is Tiny! You won't have to worry about this scale taking up space. It's just under four 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.
Easy Calibration This mini scale comes factory calibrated and ready to use. Just in case ya need to calibrate it, the YA comes with easy to follow calibration instructions. You'll just need to pick up a 500 gram calibration weight to get the job done.
Tare Feature 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 an expansion tray to weigh your things, or if ya want to get separate weights of multiple items.
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. This digital pocket scale will automatically turn off after a few minutes of inactivity, saving battery power and money.
1 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY! When ya get this digital scale, ya need to go over to the Ohaus website and register it to receive a one year warranty.
If you need a cheap and pocket-sized scale this is a great option. Great for weighing out jewelry. I purchased for weighing out parsley, basil, and other herbs from my garden and it is less than ideal for that. The tare option is nice though and allowed me to put a cup on the scale and then put my herbs in it. Pros: Lightweight Small Accurate out of box Tare function Cons: Weighing out herbs without a container on the scale does not work well. The darned thing shuts off after 15-20 seconds of steady weight. AAA Batterys (Never have any when you need 'em!)Reviewed by: VI Hits In from Midwest on (8/9/2012)
Great little pocket scale. Checked it with calibration weights, and everything was right on the money, right out of the box.Reviewed by: Eric from Fleming Island, FL on (6/27/2012)
