What are portable balances?
Portable balances are balances that can be easily moved around to where they are needed. Generally the terms is used to refer to compact, lightweight balances that have capacity options up to around 6kg.

The term portable balances can include lab balances powered by batteries instead of being plugged in. Portable balances are typically used in many labs and in the field, and are a common option for education use.

Portable balances may also be used in veterinary settings and in kitchens, too.
