Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I speak of a Electronic Hook Scale with LCD Portable Digital 1.5″ and Double Precision (Max 45Kg) (1.5″ LCD Double Precision Portable Digital Electronic Weighting Hook Scale (45kg Max)) acquired na DealExtreme. This portable scale is extremely helpful for those traveling by plane and need to know the weight of the suitcase to avoid paying for extra weight or have the order refused by the airline for exceeding the ceiling, among other utilities.
That Electronic Digital Hook Scale Portable Precision is 5 grams of 0 and 10Kg, e 10 grams 10 a 45Kg. The 45Kg limit is sufficient for up to the heaviest of bags, seen that the ceiling does not usually exceed thirty-something pounds, and economy class the limit is usually even lower. It is extremely unpleasant to have to twirl in the bag already in line to hurry or having to leave the queue and enter again, especially if you have used those services that wrap the bag in PVC film (highly recommended service for not having torn zippers and other problems with the bags). Some airports even have scales available, but it seems to be rare (only seen in a) and be redoing your bags at the airport is not very nice. I have also seen hotel with available balance, but at the cost of a currency $1 or $2 Euros for each weighing. No doubt it is much more practical to have this portable scale with you, not only at home before the trip, but also time to pack up for return, can calculate the weight accurately and re-balance the bags (Allow two companies usually) until both are within the limit.
A Electronic Digital Hook Scale Portable can also replace the mechanical portable scales, common in grocery stores, local buying material for recycling, and other. The plastic part does not seem to inspire confidence to endure 45Kg, and she really can not stand, the manual clearly says that we should hold the balance (or perhaps hang it somewhere) using that metal ring, this sim looks pretty firm, so that the plastic part is free of any stress, even if the balance is supporting 45Kg.
In the pack Electronic Digital Hook Scale Portable has a picture of a person fishing, This suggests a further situation of use. There is no indication of who the manufacturer, only one model: WH-A05, but balance There is a trade mark: WeiHeng. The manual comes in English and Chinese and well covers all operating and specifications balance, which is quite simple.
The measures available in Electronic Digital Hook Scale Portable are: kg, pounds, ounces and JIN (Chinese measure). You can switch them using the button UNIT. A balance memorizes last measure used, so there is no need to readjust every time we turn the balance. The balance adjusts the tare automatically when connected, and you can readjust it at any time by pressing the TARE button. There is also a function for it to keep the indication of the measured weight after stabilize, this function is activated by holding the TARE button 2 seconds. Finally there is a thermometer, triggered by pressing the button for UNIT 2 seconds, no time my two thermometers-hygrometer are marking temperature range of 33º C (error margin +/- 1° C) and to balance mark only 29º C, just above the margin of error indicated in the manual that is /- 2 ° C, but it is still far more accurate than the polls Ibope, Datafolha, CNT/Census e etc. 🙂
The LCD display has a light that turns on when you make a new measure, and automatically turns off after a few seconds. The food is made by two AAA batteries that come with the product. On the back there is a compartment to fit the hook when the balance not in use, so that it does not screwing and it takes up less space.
