You like the idea of a scale with a lid that can be safetly stuffed into a pocket, but you'd prefer something smaller...and tougher (0.1g / 1000g), see tuff-weigh.
It's about the right size, but would be better if it was higher capacity and neater to leave on a desk (no lid to unfold), 0.1g / 3000g, see NV-3000.
This scale is guaranteed for 3 years (postage charged after 1 year, proof of purchase required after 2 years).The guarantee excludes:
- flat batteries. New batteries will be charged at £5.00 plus £6.50 for return postage (UK).
- if you lose the battery compartment cover (sorry, we don't have spares)The guarantee is invalid if there is:
- obvious damage, e.g. dents, holes, cracked casing, weighing platform loose.
- signs of 'foreign material'. That's anything that should not be there, e.g. residues of herbs, chemicals, spilt tea, corrosion from leaking batteries.CALIBRATION
Inaccurate readings can usually be fixed by calibrating the scale, this is something you can do yourself if you have a 2Kg Calibration weight
. THIS IS NOT A FAULT, all electronic measuring devices need calibrating every now and again, see calibrating weighing machines
. We can calibrate it for you, for free, if it is returned within three months of purchase; after that, there is a charge of £5.00 + £6.50 postage (UK).
