In this category you will find complete weighing sets with practical accessories and digital scales. In these sets, for example, scales and calibration weights are included.
To calibrate a scale, you will be in need of a calibration weight of certain measure. For most (but not all) scales it is a 100g weight, but that can differ from scale to scale.

Digital ScalesDigital Scales are probably the most easy to use scales of all. Almost immediately, the weighing result can be read of the display. There are even scales with illuminated display which make it even more comfortable to read.
Most digital balances are produced in China which means they are international ex works i.e. it is possible to choose from several systems of units like the metric system, imperial system or frequently used units in the US like ounces.
How to calibrate a digital scaleThere is more than only one reason which cause a scale to fail to show exact results. Sometimes the calibration gets lost by vibration/transportation, by weak or undercharged batteries or if the scale was overloaded (which could also destroy the whole scale by displacing the spring).
Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to re-calibrate a digital scale from time to time to avoid inaccurate measurements. No problem, though - there are only few things that are easier to do than calibrating a scale and mostly you only have to go through two or three steps to make the device work properly again.
