Compact balances provide accurate results and take up little space. For low-resolution weighing in grams, compact and/or portable balances offer the convenience of small size and mobility. These models are not typically intended for high-volume usage but can provide very accurate weight readings while not breaking the bank. Many of these are fairly portable battery powered gram scales which are great for things like going out in the field for environmental research studies. These scientific scales are usually economically priced, in many cases below $500 and great for things like weighing ingredients for soapmaking, accurate reloading gunpowder weighing, or checking your child's pinewood derby and awana cars which usually have a 5 ounce weight limit. At Central Carolina Scale we've been providing these gram scales for decades to customers just like you. We usually recommend brands like A&D, Brecknell and Ohaus.
