Product Details

Bright Backlit DisplayThis digital scale has a fancy red, backlit display to help ya see your weight readings, even in dim lighting.

Easy CalibrationThis jewelry scale comes factory calibrated and ready to use. Just in case ya need to calibrate it, the JS50XV comes with easy to follow calibration instructions. Just use the included 50 gram calibration weight to get the job done.

Does This Thing Count?You bet it does! All ya need to do is weigh a sample amount of pieces, so the scale can know how much each piece weighs, then start counting. You'll be finished in no time.

It Has WeighMeter™ Technology!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.

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.

Tare FeatureThe 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.

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 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.

It Remembers The Last Unit Ya UsedIf 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 JScale JS-50 turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when ya turned it off.

Programmable Auto-Off FeatureIf 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 JS50XV to turn off automatically, or to stay on until you turn it off yourself.

20 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY!If ya have a problem with this scale within the first twenty years ya own it, just send it in to the Jennings warranty center right here in the USA. They'll fix or replace your scale, and have it on it's way back to ya within two working days.

Great Little Scale
I'm very pleased with the price and performance of this scale! Used the supplied weight to check it, and it came out to 50.01. Accurate right out of the box! I use it as a tea scale, and It is very light weight and portable, and the supplied pad takes away unwanted vibration to further accuracy. I would not hesitate to recommend this product!!!

Jennings JS-50XV digital pocket scale
I purchased this pocket sized scale to weigh lead bullets I'm casting and this scale is extremely accurate. It's very sensitive but does exactly what I wanted by measuring out to several decimal places. Highly recommend it.

Great Customer Service
Purchased a JS-50XV for my reloading room. When I received the scale it would not zero or calibrate. Called on a Tuesday and the customer service rep and I went through all the trouble shooting procedures but in the end nothing worked. She told me they deemed it defective and that they would test a replacement before shipping to me. Received it on Friday and it works great! Now that's customer service! I will buy from them again and will recommend to my reloading friends.

Great for Reloading!
I was not really happy with any of the scales normally found on websites dedicated to reloading ammunition. After much web searching, I came across a forum mention of this scale and Old Will Knotts. I have to say that this scale is excellent for weighing powder, and is accurate to a tenth of a grain as advertised. I may order another one, I like it so much! And, unlike many of the other electronic reloading scales found on the market, this scale lets you shut off the auto shutdown feature, which is nice since it prevents the scale from shutting down between charges.

Good Scale - Bad Tray
This is a good little scale I use for measuring winemaking additives. However, the cover is advertised as a tray for weighing. The problem is it has a sticker on what would be the inside of the tray. That's not good for weighing powders.

Just right
Old Will's website offers plenty of information to make the correct choice for your needs, and mine was the Jennings JS-50XV. This scale arrived in perfect condition; a short read of the instructions and I was off and running. This scale will be used primarily for reloading, the scale is plenty accurate and easy to use, and you cannot beat the warrenty and Will's support.

Fast, Accurate, Reliable
I use this scale for reloading handgun ammunition. It is 10 times faster than using a beam scale. I weigh the empty cartridge, set the tare weight, then add my powder and weigh again. It is accurate to 0.1 grain, which is perfect for my application.

Great Scale
We use this scale at my school, it's very responsive and quickly steadies out, the backlight is also a really nice feature. It's very lightweight and portable(we take it to science contests and things) and come with the proper calibration weight.

Very pleased with the quality of the scales. Simple to set up (calibrate) and understandable directions. Seem to be very good quality for an affordable price. Scales arrived promptly and in perfect condition. Would certainly buy from this seller again.

a nice little scale
I purchased three of these scales for my employees. All three came in great condition and work very well. The back light makes the numbers very easy to read and the mats included with the scale work wonders at reducing vibrations. On the down size, the scale is a little slow to register weight making precision measurements a bit tedious. all in all, a decent scale for the price.
