Product Details

What's Eco-Plastic?My Weigh has worked hard to create a more "earth friendly" plastic for molding their weighing scales, their solution...Eco Plastic! Eco Plastic is a composite material made from hemp fibres and recycled plastics resulting in a biodegradable plastic that will help keep Mama Earth happy.

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

Easy CalibrationThis scale comes factory calibrated and ready to use. Just in case ya need to calibrate it, the 500ZH comes with easy to follow calibration instructions. You'll just need to pick up a 200 gram calibration weight to get the job done.

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 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.

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 500ZH turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when ya turned it off.

Auto-Off FeatureIf 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 500-ZH will automatically turn off after a few moments of inactivity, saving battery power and money.

30 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY!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.

Loose battery cover
Part of my decision to purchase this particular scale was the hemp-based plastic casing. Of the ten I received, two would not calibrate and one had a faulty display that could not be read. On all of them, however, the battery cover was too loose. We use them with students, and there's no doubt the battery covers would be constantly falling off and the batteries possibly falling out. I'm sure duct tape would have solved the problem, but I didn't think I wanted to go that route with new scales. I have many other My Weigh scales I'm quite satisfied with (calibrate fine and the battery covers fit tightly), so once you get a working one it should last. Trevor Knott was excellent in working with me to return the scales and find a replacement model.
