Digital pocket scales
« on: December 12, 2002, 03:19:00 PM »
Anybee know if the Triton 100 digitals are any good? I ordered a set, because they looked like they would be good one's. Someone told me they thought they had heard bad things about them. I would appreciate anyone's input.

I have a palm scale and it does the job ' most small digital scales are ok '' just clean them after each use and store in a dry area.

don't try using them to weigh things over the max weight and they should last a looooong time..

tritons lose accuracy after 6 mos.
« Reply #2 on: December 14, 2002, 02:09:00 AM »
I've also heard people talk about they lose accuracy after being used a lot.  Tanita scales are really durable; I've carried around a set daily for over three years now and they are still accurate to 0.1g

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then give up. There's no use being a fool about it.

Pocket Scales.

Pocket scales are great due to their size, although after travelling and bumping around with them they will become inaccurate.
Swim isn't sure whether tritons have a calibrator function, only really high end digi scales have these just to make sure that say 1gram is actually reading 1gram.
They use those old brass weights to calibrate. Swim has a set and wouldn't buy another set of pocket scales.

Buy yourself a set of stand alone digital scales that will do 0.0001 of a gram. They have these great little covers that will almost diminish the factor of air pressure errors.
Not a bad thing, but pretty pricy.

Don't spill any GBL on scales in this price range, or they'll start melting before you can say "Oh Shit!".

I notice that the scales have a mode setting, does the website actually state what different modes the scales have?

Or does it real like imperial and metric?

Sweet ass discount though :)

ketones will melt right through those scale tops before you have a chance to wipe it up.

SWIM got a $1300USD 1300g x0.01g digital scale for $200USD.  everything seemed good until SWIM realized 1g measured 1.03g on the scale.  that works out to 3% off.

any scale that has been mailed or couriered will require checking to determine if it needs calibration.  the greater the accuracy, the greater the need for calibration.

Now with 12% more Bottom!

, which I use mostly for consumables. As long as you don't spill hydrocarbons on it, it'll work fine. Haven't had to change the batteries for a few years.

  For weighing-out chems, I use scales that look out-dated, and non-digital, kind of like this one:

These are swims scales, they were a little more expensive when he bought them. Not a bad company though.

Question?
« Reply #12 on: December 15, 2002, 05:14:00 PM »
question for someone with a scale that goes to .001
How much does a us nickel weigh??
I know it's going to be lighter if it's old and worn out.
Try a new one if you can.

Is it exactly 5 grams?
I've always kinda used this as a base for checking a cheap scale and was wondering how close it actually is.

I,for example,have complete set of weights including 500,200,100,50,20,10,5,2,1 gram.A friend's set includes also 500,200,100,50 and 20 mg weights.Very good to check if scale shows right numbers.They are quite cheap.

I went ahead and bought the Tritons. They have a calibration function if it's needed. They seem to be preety good. They go up to 100g. I'll let everyone know if they tyurn out to be junk.

RC dosing
« Reply #15 on: December 15, 2002, 09:45:00 PM »
How do people determine what dose to use with the RCs going around (especially 5-MeO-AMT)?  Must be mostly students using scales from the chem lab, huh?

"How much does a us nickel weigh??"

  After calibration of my acculab pocket pro, a 2002 nickel weighed in at 5g.

small digital scales serves a purpose for those who need a good scale for a small amount of money .

sure I would agree there are better scales on the market but for personal use the small digitals work just fine.

hell these are great compared to the ones i had before ,
you held it with two fingers , had a aligator clip
that I clipped to a cornor cut off a baggie, I put i2/rp /e  and it would weigh up to 20 grams i beleive nice huh.
I calibrated useing a nickle as a matter of fact hell it worked.
head-shop special $4.95
  
so yes these digitals are the cats meow IMHO besides I like the camo design,  no one can see it .    ;)  ;)

my scale...best accuracy for lowest price
« Reply #19 on: December 17, 2002, 12:01:00 AM »

I have one of those. I think it is the highest accuracy for the price.  It has 0.002 (2mg) accuracy and has a max capacity of 10 grams.  It also includes a 10 gram calibration weight. The Tanita seems to be built nice and solid... and you get a little dinner-plate shaped tray and a little crucible shaped one with a spout for pouring, both plastic.
