We really like scales here at the Adafruit factory, we use them extensively for weighing packages for shipment. We also like scales for counting components, especially small ones, like LEDs or pogo pins. There’s nothing more tedious than counting out bunches of LEDs for SpokePOV kits or LED packs. Using a scale is both fast and precise, leaving us more time for designing kits and writing tutorials!
Our new favorite scale! We just picked up a MyWeigh i601 and it is by far our favorite counting scale. I’m so in love with it, I’m going to get another. Its an ideal counter for small components!
