Smart Weigh GEM20 High Precision Digital Milligram Scale ~ #Review #Scale


 The Smart Weigh GEM20 High Precision Digital Milligram Scale is a compact little scale which can be used for jewelry, gold, silver, coins and other small objects. This is a nice portable scale which weighs up to 20 grams in increments of 0.001 (1 milligram).

I received the scale which comes in an attractive box to store it in with a magnetic closing. It includes tweezers, a measuring pan to sit on the scale's pressure plate, and two 10 gram calibrating weights. It is powered by two AAA batteries also included, which is nice so you don't have to hunt for batteries.

Prior to calibration, it is recommended to let the scale warm up for 30 to 60 seconds. Calibration is performed before you get it but shipping and acceleration of gravity can affect the weighing range. For this reason it's recommended to check calibration before using.

To do this you turn the scale on and wait for the display lights to show "CAL". Then press the "ON" button once more and it will flash "10.000g". You then put one of the 10g calibration weights on the center of the platform and when the weight is accepted it will show "20.000g". Place the other 10g weight on top of the first one to equal a total of 20g. Once the weight is accepted, the display shows "PASS" and your calibration is complete.

I tried out the scale by weighing one of my rings as shown below. It was interesting to see how much something small like this would weigh.

I placed my ring in the weighing tray, which is nice with a handle on it to place on the scale. It also has a small lip if you are measuring liquids.

The bright LCD display with the large numbers makes it very easy to read. I measured my ring in grams and it weighed 2.868 grams.

Besides grams, the scale has other units of measure such as oz, ct, ozt, dwt, and gn. You can also use the tare feature to subtract the weight of an empty container to determine net weight.

Overall, I'm happy with the Smart Weigh GEM20 High Precision Digital Milligram Scale. It's inexpensive, portable and can be stored in a small place.

  1. Technically a calibration weight or test Weight is a Mass rather than a Weight. Weight is the ... dustrial scales, commercial scales and retail scale calibration los angeles.
