A Short Review of USPS PS-200 330 lb Shipping Scale
The USPS PS-200 scale is made by Accutire and is licensed by the USPS. It can weigh items from 1 pound to 330 pounds, with .1 pounds of display resolution. Obviously it’s designed for parcel weighing. A big 1.5-inch LCD display is connected with a six foot stretchy cord to the scale, allowing it to be detached in case of large packages, or put in a built-in drawer inside the scale.
The scale comes with standard features such as automatic shut-off and switchable weight display between pounds and kilograms. USPS PS-200 can be powered by a Star IV power adapter that is included in the package, or by 3 AA batteries (not included).
Some users of this postal scale have complained about inconsistent weight measurements of the same package. This may have occurred due to almost depleted batteries if the scale was running on battery power only.
