Before purchasing a high precision pocket scale, there are a few things you should know. Although theses scales are designed for durability during storage, transport, and use, there are many things that can damage your new pocket scale. Never drop an item to be weight onto the weighing platform or attempt to weigh and item exceeding the maximum capacity, both of these can permanently damage the inter load cells and sensors. Due to the high sensitivity of these high precision pocket scales, many outside elements can affect your results.

Always keep your work area clean and maintain awareness of other the other factors while using your scale. Like other high precision scales, if you handle your high precision pocket scale with care, you will get many years of accurate use.
