[gram scales], an explanation

Filed under: Uncategorized

[gram scales] are scales that have an increment capability 1 gram. Increment capability relates to the accuracy of the [gram] scales. For example, [gram scales] weigh in increments of grams up to its maximum load. If the [gram scales] you are looking at purchasing have a maximum load of 500g and it has an increment capacity of grams, then it will weigh 1g, 2g, 3g etc all the way up to 500g.

If you’re looking for more accuracy then it might be better to consider scales that have an increment capacity of a tenth of a gram, rather than [gram scales]. This way you could measure 3.1g, 3.2g, 3.3g, 3.4g, and 3.5g etc, all of the way up to its maximum capacity.

Something to consider, however, is that the more accurate the incremental capacity of the [gram scales] or other, the less maximum load the [gram scales] or other tend to take, so you need to make a decision based on what’s more important to you – accuracy or load.
