Works as I anticipated. Nice to have the electric outlet component vs. just battery operated.
We ship out small packages containing books & DVDs. Having this scale saves us trips to the post office. Excellent value for the price.
Great compact product!
My previous scale had a "lifetime" battery, I learned that means about 5 years. I purchased this scale because of the description and other reviews. It is nice for many reasons. It is compact so it can be left out and not take up much room or it can easily be stored in a small place. I love the 'hold' button which allows you to put a large box on the platform, weigh the item and when you remove the item the actual weight remains on the screen for you to see. It does have an envelope flap so you can weigh envelopes laying flat or standing up.
When I first purchased it, I weighed 2 different envelopes that were questionable by .1 ounce (at the post office if your package goes over by .1 ounce you need to round up which can add up in postal fees). The post office confirmed the weight that the scale gave to me so I knew it was reading accurately ~ that sure was nice to know! No one wants a customer to receive a package that has to be picked up the post office because they owe extra postal fees.
I also love the fact that it has a power cord that comes with it so no more batteries AND I did not have to purchase the power adaptor separately ~ it was all in the same box!
Overall I would recommend this to anyone that would require a scale that weighs objects upto 10 pounds. If you own a business, it would depend on how heavy your objects are going to be! I cannot tell you how long it will read accurately over time or how long it will last, but right now I am very pleased with it.
Works great, even smaller than I thought but that's good - the display stays lit after you remove the package so you can use it for larger packages as well.
This US post office licensed desk-top sized scale weighs items from .1 ounce up to 10 pounds. Very convenient item for home or office. The unit has a 1.3" LCD display and easy-to-use buttons. Weight read-out can be switched between ounces and grams. The scale top has a flip-up easel to allow for large envelope weighing. (This product does not connect to the USPS.)
