Calibration
Does the scale have a calibration mode?
If so, which weight does it use?

For the calibration weight, get a set of ''Precision Calibration Set'' from Ali.
It's a set of 5 (1g 2g 5g 10g 20g) and seems to be pretty accurate for the price.

Is it possible to use a 200 gram weight for calibrating this scale?

The scale will tell you what you need to use.

1. Press ON/OFF to turn the scale on, and wait for the scale to stabilize, where it reads 0.0g.

2. Press and hold the MODE key, the middle button that says “M”, until the display reads “CAL”.



3. Take one more look at the platform to make sure it is totally bare. Press MODE again to confirm the zero point.

4. The display will flash the required calibration weight

5. Take your calibration weight and place it on the center of the platform.

6. The display will read “PASS”, and return to normal weighing mode. From here you can turn your scale off or continue weighing.




I have a 650 gram scale and following these steps it tells me to use 200 grams to calibrate.



I prefer weights but you can use coins if in a pinch.


Anyway, this video shows the steps above and the weight needed to accurately calibrate the scale.




AS you see their scale required 100 grams to pass calibration.

These scales are typically calibrating with max supported weight.
Also, the accuracy is in %% from max weight as well.

Some do some don't.

The mode button will say 500 grams if thats what it required.

So the info is still good.

Mine is also a jewelry scale ( not that I weigh jewelry wink wink) and only requires 200 grams.

The description picture shows a 100 gram weight, so is that the weight every scale of this kind uses to calibrate, from this seller?
Asking because I want the correct weight shipped with the scale in 1 order.

Well FT manufacturer photos are not always correct, best to check with FT support.

Also ask them if weight is included or not, most times they are not.

I can confirm that this scale (SKU 9686251) requires a 100g weight for calibration.

The calibration procedure is as viking65 described earlier, and as shown in the video clip he included.
