Although this scale is designed to be extrem ely durable with extra overload
protection built into the case, It’s important that you never overload or drop/shock
the scale. Scales are delicate instrum ents and unlike C ellular phones, scales
have delicate sensors that determ ine how much an item weighs. If you drop or
shock your scale, these sensors "feel" the shock and are som etim es destroyed.
T his happens with all digital scales. W e design our s cales to be as resistant to
shock or drops as possible, however there is no way for us to protect 100%
against load cell or sensor damage. A well-treated scale will provide years of
reliable and accurate weighing. H owever an abused scale will only work until it’s
sensors are damaged
