How accurate are the digital scales?
    #2932852 - 07/27/04 04:06 PM (17 years, 4 months ago)

I am currently working with a beam grain scale that measures in 10th's of a grain. (There are 15.4 grains to the gram) The question is what is the variance in digital scales? Will one gram on a digital scale be as accurate as the scale I have?

Is it worth buying a new scale?

digital scales are more accurate untill they break. digital scales last about 1-3 years and then you have to buy a new one. just stick with the one you have if your used to it.

Eh? I have to recalibrate from time to time, but I have never had to throw a digital scale away because it got too old...

> The question is what is the variance in digital scales?

There are two things to watch for... maximum capacity and accuracy. The larger the capacity and the better the accuracy, the more expensive the digital scale. Most digital scales can measure at least 100g with 0.1g accuracy. These scales are pretty cheap, usually less than $100. A mid range scale can measure around 200g with 0.01g accuracy. These scales are a bit more, usually more than $100, but often not by much. A really expensive scale can measure around 400g with 0.001g accuracy, but this is going to set you back around a grand, if not more.
