Q: What are the benefits of using a compact balance?

Compact balances and scales are highly versatile weighing machines that are well suited to almost any basic weighing application. The main advantages of using a compact balance over other types of scale or balance primarily come down to cost. Compact balances and scales are usually much cheaper than other scales and balances as they tend to have lower weighing capacities and overall levels of precision.

Despite lacking in features compared to other scales and balances, compact balances are small in size, fully portable and often include battery operation; making them ideal for outdoor weighing experiments or non-permanent lab or classroom environments. These machines are often relied upon in school environments as they are low-cost, hardy, stackable and can be easily stored away in science prep rooms and store cupboards when not in use.
