This affordable digital scale incorporates a strain gauge loadcell which allow the price to be so low compared the electromagnetic force restoration like the A&D FX-1200i or Sartorius Entris2202-1S. Large 4.7" x 5.3" weighing platform with bright backlit display makes viewing fast & easy in any lighting. You can program the backlit to always be ON, always OFF, or when a weight is applied to the weighing platform the backlit automatically turns ON. If you are working in an area with air currents and drafts that would affect the weight measurement we would recommend the EPB-1002D with the 3 door glass draftshield over the EPB-1002L.
EPB-1002L offers 1000 grams weighing capacity and the scale increments in 0.01 gram divisions. Yes that is 1/100th of a gram. Precision weighing toploading scale offers you everything you need for basic weighing tasks, without unnecessary features that mark up the cost. The toploading scale is simple to operate and comes with large LCD display for maximum ease of reading the weighing results. Operates on AC Adapter or batteries allowing for weighing flexibility even in the field collecting samples. Compact design saves you valuable bench space while still featuring a large 4.7" x 5.3" weighing platform delivering a large surface area to weigh samples plus the weighing platform is removable for easy cleaning.
Simply press the "UNIT" keypad and you have the choice of 13 different weigh modes - grams, ounces, pounds, and many more weigh modes. The bright backlit display makes viewing easy in even poorly lighting environments. You have the flexibility to configure the backlit to always be ON, always OFF, or when a weight is applied to the weighing platform the backlit automatically turns ON. The EPB-1002D comes with an all glass draftshield that is permanently fixed and can not be removed.
The EPB1002L precision balance can be operate on either AC Adapter which is included or 6 AA batteries that are not included. This is another nice design since other competitor brands like the AND Weighing EK-610i don't operate on standard off the shelf AA alkaline batteries that are available also everywhere. Instead A&D designed their EK610i digital scale to use their special proprietary design rechargeable battery pack that cost a fortune. Other manufacturers use a sealed lead acid battery with the battery terminals hard soldered. So when the lead acid battery loses its ability to hold a charge if you don't have a soldering iron and know how to solder then your scale it inoperable. All these issues are eliminated with the EPB1002D since it uses off the shelf regular AA batteries. If you are always near a power receptacle just run the digital scale on the AC Adapter.
Calibration is easy with the EPB1002L but it does require you to purchase one of the optional calibration weights - either 1 kilogram or 500 grams listed by scrolling down the web page in the OPTIONS section. You do have the ability to configure the digital scale to use any weight up to the weighing capacity of the scale, but we recommend a minimum of 50% of the balance's weighing capacity.
The EPB1002L is truly a value oriented product designed for the school science classroom, hobbyist, or light industrial weighing applications. Compare the features the EPB1002L offers and the cost to other similar digital scales and we think you'll agree if you are on a tight budget the EPB-1002L is the choice.
If the EPB-1002L isn't exactly what you need we offer several other precision weighing instrument that may meet your weighing application HERE since there are over 10 different models in the EPB Series HERE.

Be sure to review this youtube video for a better understanding the performance you get from strain gauge digital scale verses magnetic force restoration (MFR) balance. If you are weighing static objects a strain gauge loadcell might work good enough for your weighing task, but if you are weight loss or gain over time you really need to find money money and buy a magnetic force restoration precision balance. The EPB-1002L isn't the only strain gauge scale on the market that offers readability to 0.01 gram and weighing capacity over 1000 grams. Other models included Adam HCB1002, My Weigh iM01, Sartorius Practum 1102-1S, and there are more from other manufacturers. If you want better performance then we recommend you purchase a balance that uses electromagnetic force restoration weigh sensor like the A&D FX-1200i or Sartorius Entris2202-1S, but this will cost a lot more $$.
