Internal rechargeable batteries are found in many scales on the market today. Why would you choose battery power over the simplicity of plugging your scale into a wall outlet? Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of a rechargeable battery-powered scale.
1. No Electricity? No Problem!
Whether you need to work somewhere without a convenient electrical outlet or the power has temporarily gone out, you’ll be able to perform weighing tasks without missing a beat with a battery-powered scale.
Be mindful of when the battery needs to be recharged. The last thing you want is to lose power while working in the field.
Adam’s CBX compact balance offers the ability to recharge via a low-voltage USB connector, like a cell phone, for convenience.
2. Easy Mobility
Without the need to rely on a power cord while working, your scale can be anywhere you need it to be. Are you taking inventory? You can easily transport an easy-to-carry scale like Cruiser CCT throughout your warehouse and save time. Be sure to store your rechargeable scale somewhere convenient at the end of each workday.
A scale that’s easily moveable – like a scale with a rechargeable battery – is also easy to share. If they aren’t using it all day, every day, employees at different workstations or in different areas of your facility can share the same device.
Moving the scale may not even be necessary for sharing: the Aqua Stainless Steel (ABW-S) washdown scale features front and rear displays, making sharing even easier. In a washdown environment, high voltage currents can be dangerous, making a battery-powered washdown scale like ABW-S a safer alternative.
Batteries can be expensive (think of your kid’s toys and every remote control in the house!), but rechargeable batteries can be charged hundreds of times – or more – before ever needing to be replaced. Over time, your scale pays for itself in battery savings.
Electric rates are lower in some localities at night, so recharging scales overnight also offers another opportunity for savings.
Rechargeable batteries are also better for the environment, using less non-renewable natural resources than disposable alkaline batteries. To minimize their environmental impact, always properly dispose of spent rechargeable batteries in accordance with local regulations.
