Soapers Scale reads to 2 decimal places
but it is in .05 oz at a time. As an example, if you had a
weight that was 4.05 ounces, and you added something very small,
the next reading would be 4.10 ounces. If you need to have be
more accurate than that, then you set it to weigh in grams
instead of ounces. A gram is 0.352 of an ounce. The
Soapers Scale also weighs in lbs and
ounces or just lbs and of course, kg which you probably would
not use since you are here in the States.
You want to check the
maximum weight for any scale that you purchase and be sure that
you do not overload it. Neither should you operate it in close
proximity to cell phones and other electronic gadgets like
computer monitors or TV sets that transmit magnet impulses.
These can cause your scale to change weights as it picks up on
the transmission frequencies. This is true with most scales of
this type. An even surface is another essential to have accurate
weights. We do not have any of the issues with it changing
weights when I weigh the same object.
The best thing to do is to decide what it is you
will be using it for. Check the maximum weight - is it okay?
Then, determine how accurate you need for it to be? If it fits
those 2 requirements, then you should be okay.
