Portable Balances for Educational Use

Portable scales can be used to describe digital weighing scales that can be moved around.

The term portable scales is used to describe a weighing scale that can be run on batteries and do not depend on a mains connection. In theory all weighing scales are portable, if you can pick it up and carry it then it is portable, but you may not have a mains socket where you need to use the scale, so a truly portable scale is battery powered.There are two forms of battery powered portable scales, ones that use standard dry-cell batteries and those that have internal rechargeable batteries.

Within education, portable scales can be particularly useful due to their ease of use. Portable scales can be used for a series of classroom weighing applications including the measuring of compounds in classroom experiments.
