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.Read more ›
* 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.
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.
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!

Great piece of kit, quite small - which is good. Perfect for those moments when you need to be accurate to a tenth of a gram when you're out and about!Published 1 month ago by Anonymous Coward

Accurate to 0.1g in my experience. Read more
If I wanted a really accurate instrument I would expect to have to pay a hell of a lot more for it!
