as in title -
A MINOR POINT: the box says it packages models with capacities 100g, 200g, 300g, 500g, 1000g but no tick-box is ticked - but no matter because the capacity is on written the front of the scales -
AN OBSERVATION: all makes & models of electronic scales weighing in increments of 0.1g sold on Amazon are made in China, ie. they're very similar but with very slight surface variations (so the below instructions should apply to all of them)
THE V.SLIGHT DRAWBACK is the "Engrish" instructions! - so here's what I wrote to remind myself how to use it next time:

TO OPEN THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT WITHOUT pressing on the scales' weighing-plate ("salver")
(important because pressing on plate could easily apply >1kg force & thus break the scales),
hold the scales BY THE EDGES ONLY & preferably with the hard cover on -
press (fairly hard) on the round indentation on the scales¡¦ base, while pushing the cover out towards the scales¡¦ top edge, until there¡¦s a small gap, then slide the cover off.

TO SWITCH ON press the power button Q (sorry, exact symbol not on PC) -
unit displays 8888.8 for a few seconds in white
then 0.0 still in white,
then after a few more seconds, the display goes much darker, displaying the 0.0 only very faintly.
When it switches itself off, obviously no numbers display - the display is completely dark.
To save even more power, to switch the unit off manually, just press the power button Q again.

First thing to say is I can't see anything to disagree with in the previous reviews. I bought it for kitchen use for weighing out small quantities, having found that so called "diet scales" (mechanical that is) you can get were generally only accurate to about +/- 2g. This does the job for me and I hope to get good use out of it. Having said that, the following may help prospective buyers:

* The point already made about not responding to small weight changes seems correct. If I increase the weight by 0.2g the response can be anywhere from nothing to plus 0.3g. I suspect that, although it displays 0.1g intervals, the true accuracy might be more like +/- 0.2g - still pretty good, though, for a scale weighing up to 1kg and OK for my needs. (I suppose a scale weighing up to, say, 300g might be more accurate but could be more sensitive to potential damage due to overloading so this may be a "best compromise" for many users).

* The auto switch-off seems a bit convoluted. After first switch-on the back-light goes off after about 5 seconds but comes back on if the weight is changed. After this it stays on for about a minute but the device then shuts off completely - a problem if you have left it half way through weighing something out. Again (like most programmable devices) once you get to grips with its idiosyncrasies, it is fine.

* Finally, it does not work with rechargeable NiMH batteries (giving 1.24V) - or rather it does after a fashion but the back light fails to come on at all. It seems to need alkaline batteries giving 1.5V. I think the spec should have mentioned this.

I use it to check the weight of letters. As such, it could would be better if it was bigger! Even so, it does the job adequately and is better value for money than most alternatives available from stationers.

You need to appreciate that you can pay nearer to 100 pounds for scales that are better but not significantly so.
If these are the only scales you have ever used then I can say you expect too much for a tenner.
Weighing one item at 0,2 grammes?, offset the low end with a heavier weight, then add your 0,2 gram object.
If this is not good enough you need to spend the other 90 quid and get professional.
All scales have a problem at the low end. It's called the Laws of Physics.

If you need excruciating accuracy and resolution for your work or hobby, buy professional scales with a calibration certificate.
I bought them to help me count loose electronic components and for that job, they do just fine.

I needed something to weigh out food portions but also for weighing letters to make sure the correct stamp valus was fixed. These scale fit the bill for both of those and I couldn't be more pleased. Ther arrived quickly and are excellent. Very easy to use and very accurate. You can check by weighing one coin, a 20p should be 5g and a 50p 8g for example. The TARE function comes in handy when weighing food portions. Put your container on the scale, and press the tare button to zero the scales again before weighing your food.
There is lots more functionality to explore but for now these are excellent and do the job brilliantly. Definitely recomment the scales, which incidntly are a ridiculously great price for what they are. Customer service from LUPO was also excellent so no need to look elsewhere, these are the ones to buy!
